will be held on December 14 held in room 101 with Mrs. Stander from 8am-12pm. Please be on time, doors will lock at 8:01am, no late comers will be allowed entry. Cadets will need to wear any uniform, except for their PT’S. Cadets are expected to attend at least 80% of their classes. Failure to attend school at least 80% of the time (whether excused or unexcused) means a cadet is chronically absent, and he or she will be placed on Attendance Probation. Two tardies count as one unexcused absence. Teachers are not obligated to provide work missed during an Unexcused Absence, and cadets are responsible for gathering any work they missed during an Excused Absence. Without a Drs Note, pre-excused absence form or authorization from an administrator, all absences/tardies excused and/or unexcused will count towards Saturday School. Cadets who are on a sports team, drill team or any other UMA teams must maintain 80% attendance. Cadets must attend all of their scheduled classes in order to participate in a practice or contest on that day. If the principal or designee grants an excused absence in advance for a pre-scheduled activity or an unforeseen emergency, the cadet may participate on that day. In addition to other infractions, a cadet may be suspended or removed from a team for unexcused absences or chronic tardiness to classes or team practices. “When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chance for graduating.”
Our annual Giving Tree is located in the front office. There are still tags/ time for you to help us to assist UMA families who are in need during the holidays. Simply take a tag or tags and attach that tag to the present and bring them to the front office by December 13th. Our SBO's are also selling hot chocolate, cookies, and candy cane grams for $1 each in order to help with The Giving Tree as well as meeting a goal they have set to go towards a cause they have chosen. If they reach their goal they will learn a dress down day after Christmas break! Remember $10 spent = 1 volunteer hr.. Thank you all for your help, especially during the holiday season!

The PIC Store is one of the ways we raise funds throughout the year. The store is operated by parent volunteers and rely on parent donations that are accepted anytime/all year long such as Kind bars,soda pop, candy bars, jerky, Gatorade, Pop-Tarts, Vitamin water, and water bottles. Cadets and parents are also able to purchase soft uniforms such as Oxford, polos, soft uniform hats, and jackets. Hours of operation are Monday- Friday from 7:00-7:30 a.m. Monday - Thursday from 3-3:30 pm. If you donate items remember every $10 you spend is equal to one volunteer hour and a current list of needs is located on the Facebook Parent Intel page.
