What do Squad Leaders Do?
1.Check their squad-mates in at 3:25

2. We brief at the start and debrief at the end. After you've been debriefed you may check out with your section leaders. DO IT CORRECTLY and RESPECTFULLY.

Am I making choices that help or hold our team back?
Am I following the social contract?
Do I understand that behavior affects my ability to participate in the parade?
Squad leaders report to me: Good and Bad
Behavior

We live in Michigan
Dress Warmly regardless of how warm you think it will be after school
We will march in any weather - Mental toughness
No going back in for clothes, bring it all out

Back Story
An elite squad of soldiers was given the assignment to capture a Warlord deep in the jungle. The warlord bribes the soldiers and they live the rest of their lives in rich luxury. They never leave the jungle again.
Name your Squad
1. It must be a name based on your back story. My example could be: Assassin to Slackin'.

2. No more than 3-4 words.
No Longer than a paragraph
Attendance
1. Are you sitting in your "Totem-canoe?"

2. Squad leaders: Is attendance complete and place on the back shelf?

3. Are you ready to listen once practice starts?
