It is hard to believe that the end of the year is in sight. We have just begun our final grading period. We have much to accomplish in the few, short weeks to come before we reach the end of the year. I thought that it would be helpful to remind you of the events scheduled between now and the end of the year so that you can make plans accordingly.
17&18: Iowa Tests of Basic Skills administration (Mornings only)
20: Middle School dance in the Sabre Shop (7 p.m. – 9 p.m.)
20-22: Academic Leave* (from the 5th grading period)
22: Kings Dominion trip (Conduct-dependent)
28: Saturday classes (Overnight passes will be granted for “Excellent Conduct” cadets only; Day passes will be permitted for all.)
29: First full-dress parade (Cadets need to be in the Barracks by 1 p.m. The parade will commence at 2:30 p.m.)
4-6: “Best Company” Leave* for 2nd semester (Members of the Winning Company who are not on Unsatisfactory Conduct will be eligible for this leave, along with the members of the Battalion Staff. All other cadets may enjoy a “Visitor’s Pass” on campus Sunday only.)
6: Alumni Day Parade (All cadets need to return from leave and be in the Barracks by 1 p.m. The parade will commence at 2:30 p.m. Leaves can resume following the parade, and day passes will be permitted after the parade.) Note: Our annual Silent Auction, sponsored by the Academy’s Development Office, will be taking place in the Middle School Gym all morning, with final bidding at 2:30 p.m.
