Monday Update: Welcome back from the Easter weekend! As many of you were aware, the week prior was dedicated to the many tests that will help determine the course of our future. On behalf of the staff we hope all testing sessions went well and that you gave it your all! For this week we’re closing in on the last opportunities to shoot the rifles and preparing for a new week. There will be a COM board this Wednesday at the usual hours and this Friday there will be the last drill meet for team held at County High School in between the hours of 1300 and 1700.
Drill Update: Last Friday on April 14 the Rocky Mountain Regional Drill Meet took place in which the Cyclone Battalion’s drill teams were able to earn remarkable awards! Both our Regulation with arms and without were able to land 4th place whilst our arms category won 3rd overall. To give recognition in the individual category, our very own Alexei German made us proud by achieving sixth place with his one-man exhibition routine. Keeping these accomplishments and successes in mind, drill members should always strive to better themselves and learn from past mistakes. Drill season isn’t over just quite yet though so there is still time to practice harder and make the last drill meet your best one yet. Congratulations to all the drill members! Let’s finish off strong.
Welcome back to school after a very windy spring break, we are glad to see that all of you are back safely. Now that school has started again, its time to buckle down and pay attention. Seniors, school is almost over for you, make sure that you get your things done. Underclassmen, same things apply so do the extra to take it the extra mile.
Being back from spring break, we are starting our marksmanship classes. You need to pass the written test with a 100% or you will not be allowed on the range.
Additionally, the COM Board is this Wednesday at 0645.
With no additional notes, please have a safe and productive week.
Congratulations to our drill team this weekend for competing in the Daniel Ybarra drill meat here at PWHS. We took home numerous awards including the commanders cup, a award for the best team over all. This win surly put a pep in our step as we walk in here Monday and gears us up for this coming Friday 20170317. We have the Drew Dix drill meet at Centennial High School. Drill team you have been informed on what time to be there. This week is just like last week, Monday and Tuesday you will be in class working on the financial planning and then Wednesday and Thursday you will be doing PT so please remember your PT cloths and be ready.
STAFF: Remember there is a Staff Meeting after school (1535) On Tuesday 20170314. MAKE SURE YOU ARE THERE.
Have a wonderful week and keep checking back here for updates.
Time for the weekly update! On March 16 there will be a drill formation comprised of all teams at 0700. If you are on a drill team make sure you’re there in a timely fashion. There is also the Drew Dix drill meet on Friday, March 10 at 0700 but it’s always great if you can show up at least half an hour early. More time to prepare means more opportunity to practice- and the more you practice, the more likely you’ll do awesome during the real deal! Also this week, come support our girl’s final four-basketball team in the upcoming assembly held on March 8. All classes will be cut short so make sure you’re aware of the shortened schedule.
