The Cadets did a Color Guard, handed out Veteran themed centerpieces to each Veteran, talked to the residents, and took photos with the residents.
It was a great life experience for both the Cadets and the residents.
Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps, MSgt Washington, MSgt Schroeder, LCpl Marchand, and all of the Maritime graduates that wear the title of United States Marine.

A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDANT TO CADETS at the High school...
Based on the leadership of some of your fellow cadets and today's overall good behavior I have authorized a dress UP for the holiday for tomorrow.
With that being said, remember that this is a privilege and if you do not follow the dress code (listed below) you will lose this privilege for future dress-downs. Police yourself and help others to act right so we can enjoy more days like this!
Below you can see our dress down rules. In addition to this please do not wear any masks, no violent or distracting props, no revealing costumes, no offensive costumes, no hats or anything that blocks student's views. You will be sent home to change and be given discipline. DO NOT RISK IT. Good rule of thumb if you have to ask if it’s ok or appropriate for school the answer is likely no it is not. Pick something else for school.
● No caps or hats are to be worn in school (except on authorized “spirit days”).
● No wave caps or scarves.
● No sunglasses or novelty glasses are to be worn in school.
● No chains, no studded belts. Necklaces may be considered chains based on the size of the links. Characterization of whether a necklace is a chain will be made by Maritime Staff.

● Skirts must reach the ends of the fingertips with arms extended at sides.
● No sandals, slides, open-toed shoes, or shoes with excessive high heels (this poses a safety issue and all Cadets must be able to walk normally). Crocs are authorized.
● Clothing may have rips, tears, holes, frayed edges as long as no skin or undergarments are showing
The Orienteering team had practice at Chestnut Ridge Saturday. Eight Cadets participated and a veteran that graduated last year met us at the park to assist. Thank you for your support Jacob Morgan! Our goal was to find three points but the team was quick so we traveled on to find the fourth! Confidence and knowledge within the team is growing and it surely showed! We ended practice with lunch at Mongolian!
