Well as you can see Alpha flight has increased in a total of 7.5% in overall scoring from warrior week to second marking period which is pretty impressive. Its good to see progress now its time to keep progressing not just in pt but for life, working out can keep your body healthy and in shape.
Cadet Master Sergeant Natasha Lopez
Cadet Master Sergeant Angel Ramos
Participation for Marking Periods 1 & 2
Well as you can see Echo flight has had 100% participation which is a major goal completed because of the large amount of students involved in this flight. Overall most cadets have improved and excelled through out their physical training and have shown impressive results by each warrior week and assessment. Of course we continue to have new goals, in this case would be to grow as a core and improve not just our scores but of course our health and assist each other anyway we can.
The Brentwood AFJROTC Health and Wellness program has expanded in the past 2 years and is very crucial in the success of every cadet in the program. As Athletic coordinators, it is our duty in the unit to assist cadets with keeping track of their scores during Warrior week, as well as their PT self Assessments, which make up a very valuable percentage of every cadet’s grade in this course and to make sure that each cadet reaches ROTC fitness standards, and ultimately maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, We also compete in Athletic competitions against other ROTC units from all across Long Island and the Tri-state region.
About:Health and Wellness
About Health and Wellness
In this Unit, we are tested in a variety of exercises which tests us physically, and requires all muscle groups in order to stay healthy. We do push ups and chin ups for strength training, crunches for Abdominal strength, shuttle and mile run for cardiovascular endurance, and the V-sit and reach for flexibility.
The Work Outs
The overall class percentile:
Weak spots: I believe the girls would need to work hard in training for upper body strength for example the pull ups. Also the boys in flexibility in reaching a far distance. Having great health and training would get to your greatest ability.
Strong points: girls are average with their curl ups as is the boys also in speed. Running more and more each day will result in better timing. Its all about beating the clock.
OBJECTIVES (1 of 3)
Prepare 3 select members for an effective execution of the American Legion’s Oratorical District Competition.
The American Legion’s Oratorical Competition is where 3 members of our team give an 8-10 minute prepared oration on some aspect of the Constitution, with emphasis on a citizen’s duties and obligations to our government. Orations are encourage to have patriotic resonance and to promote internal efficacy. Members are judged individually against 5 other competitors. This is not a “team” competition.
All briefing team members are required to complete this prepared oration and submit it to the officers. All speeches are then considered for competition.
Cadets are selected to compete based on academic achievement, coherence of speech, and content of prepared oration. Selection is subject to the discretion of MSgt Richard Lochren, the briefing team advisor.
This competition is not exclusive to AFJROTC members and is open to all schools in Suffolk County. However, all students who compete on behalf of Brentwood High School are members of the NY-773 Briefing Team, as this is our specialty.
OBJECTIVES (2 of 3)
Organize an appealing presentation for potential recruits from the freshman campus of Brentwood.
Cadets who show excellent leadership and public speaking skills are selected to recruit members for our unit from the Brentwood High School Freshman Center. The group consists of Briefing Team members, as well as Drill Team members. Briefing Team members are responsible for putting the AFJROTC experience into words and capturing the essence of what it truly means to be a Fighting Falcon.
OBJECTIVES (3 of 3)
Monitor elite team eligibility of all briefing team members.
All members who participate in elite team competitions are expected to uphold our core values to their highest standard. This means integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.
Members are to report their grades to the officers at the culmination of each marking period. Their grades must add up to an overall average of 85 or higher. Failure maintain this standard will result in a probation period during which the cadet’s academic progression will be closely monitored until he/she meets the minimum average requirement. Cadets who fail to improve grades will be prohibited from participating in Briefing Team competitions.
