ANNOUNCEMENTS
   
   Welcome back Cadets to the 2019-2020 school year. We have an exciting schedule planned for the Fall semester with the highlights consisting of the Patriotic Show on 30 August, Field Training Exercise on 5-6 October, Marine Corps Birthday Ball on 16 November, Tomball Holiday Parade on 23 November and the Brenham Drill Meet on 7 December.
 
   We have been busy over the summer, with the staff updating the cadet guidebook (Version  4), which will be issued to every cadet. We have also been cleaning up and improving the classrooms and supply rooms. A Staff Camp and NCO Camp were executed at the beginning of the summer, with over a dozen cadets trained. We also sent seven cadets to spend a week at Pasadena High School for the Basic and Advanced Cadet Leadership Camps.
 
   Here in a week we will be holding our First Year Orientation Camp. This is an awesome opportunity for the new cadets to get to know the program and learn the information they need to be promoted.
     
   We are finalizing Version 1 of the 2019-2020 Events Schedule and it will be posted to the right once we are done.
