CoCurriculars

NJ-781st Co-Curricular Activities

Co-Curricular activities are a critical component of a successful AFJROTC unit. These activities are AFJROTC-sponsored and school-approved events conducted outside classroom hours which are planned, organized, and executed by the cadet corps while being supervised by the SASI or ASI. The following are Co-Curricular activities planned for AY18:

  • Most Mondays after school: Color Guard
  • Most Thursdays after school: Drill Team, Rocketry or other activity
  • Occasional Wednesday after school when scheduled and approved in advance by SASI or ASI: Cadet Staff training, staff work, additional practice or other activity
  • Presenting Colors at home football games, teacher in-service and designated community events that occur throughout school year
  • Paintball or Airsoft Event (Spring)
  • 2x Drill Competitions (March and/or April)
  • AFJROTC Ball: Friday, 15 February 2019. Current cost is $30 per person with payment due by 8 January 2019
    • The AFJROTC military ball is an annual formal function that is planned and attended by the cadets enrolled in JROTC. Military personnel and male cadets dress in military formal uniforms and female cadets may wear a formal dress. Male guests are expected to dress in a suit and female guests a formal dress. Females attending the ball are encouraged to wear a conservative formal dress, one that is either floor length or at the knee and does not show an excessive amount of skin. There are different sections to a military ball including a reception hour, receiving line, dinner, and dance portion. The reception hour is when guests are encouraged to mingle. The dinner has multiple courses, during which there are toasts and traditions are observed that are specific to each military branch. Guests are required to follow a printed program and respond correctly to each toast or tradition, including standing when the American flag is presented. This is a great event for cadets to experience their first formal dinner and dance at a price that is significantly less than the annual Prom.

  • Community or School Service Events (throughout school year)
  • Fundraising Event (2-23 October)
  • Annual Field Trips (December and April)
  • Annual Awards Ceremony (23 May)
  • Cadet Leadership Course (22-29 June)
The above activities are planned but subject to change depending on school, JROTC, and unforeseen events.
