Patriot NJROTC Newsletter Aug 2016

Each newsletter will share upcoming events in a calendar format while highlighting current news and team results.  If you have a suggestion for the newsletter, please don’t hesitate to share it with us.

Monthly newsletters will be released the last week of the previous  month.  (September issue posted the last week of August)


Unfortunately, I missed a few main points for our out of semester and out of district cadets at our recent back-to-school night.  Please refer to our FAQ section to find answers to the most commonly asked questions about our program.  In short, regardless of your home school our what semester you are in a Naval Science course, we are a year round program, and cadets can participate in all teams and events year round.  This does pose a communication challenge, but we hope this website, newsletter and our social media platforms make it easier to follow and share the most up to date information.

Welcome to Patriot NJROTC 2016-2017 School Year

August 16, 2016 / News


Please join us at Back-To-School night, Wednesday, August 17th from 5:00 – 7:00.

Though intended for incoming and returning T.J. students, the NJROTC program uses this event to welcome ALL cadets from both in and outside of Governor Thomas Johnson.  If you will be joining us from another Frederick County school, we encourage you to join us for a parent information presentation and student information session with returning cadets.  This event is also (especially) suitable for those not attending our program until the Spring.

The NJROTC presentation will take place in the T.J. main auditorium at 1800.  All students will be escorted to our classrooms after a welcome introduction, while the parents remain for a 30 minute presentation.  Immediately following, we will join the students and answer any questions you may have.  In addition to the presentation, our NJROTC Boosters will be selling unit clothing and meeting new parents.
We look forward to seeing everyone!
