Welcome to Junior ROTC at EVHS

2018-19 Junior Reserve Officer Training Course

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a class at the high school where you can learn a lot, have fun doing it, gain some unique and valuable experiences, meet your Career and Technical Education (CTE), PE, Art*, World Language*, and/or Elective credit requirement, and all at no cost to you?  There is such a program at East Valley High School – The Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC).

The Lebanon High School Warrior Battalion

JROTC is a structured class that helps develop high school students into leaders while teaching them skills that will help them in all their classes.  You will learn about your community, your school and yourself.  You will be challenged mentally and physically.  You will make new friends and learn skills that will help you both in and out of the classroom.  You will be part of a team of motivated young men and women seeking to make a positive difference.

Let us give you the facts on this great leadership and character development program.

  • There is no requirement to join any military service.  We encourage the young men and women in our program to seek college or trade education following graduation from high school.  The JROTC program is not a recruiting tool for the military!
  • There is absolutely no cost to you or your family.  We provide all uniforms and equipment you will need.  Students wear a uniform one day a week.

In addition to classroom academics, the JROTC program offers a variety of co-curricular (before and after school) activities:

  • A Color Guard team that presents our national flag during school, community and state events and ceremonies and that competes several times a year.
  • Air Rifle, Physical Fitness and Drill teams that train for and compete in several competitions a year.
  • Community service projects that give students practical experience helping others in need and that fulfill graduation requirements.
  • Formal events that expose students to proper social behavior.

What We Expect

What we expect from students in our program is discipline, respect, honor, hard work, commitment and teamwork. Students willing to embrace these qualities will do well in JROTC and anything else they attempt. If you are looking for a unique class that will help you have fun, meet positive people and become involved in our community as well as a program that will develop your academic, social, and leadership skills, then JROTC is for you. Please contact us should you have any questions.

*Depending on how you filled out your High School and Beyond Plan. Check with the JROTC department or your counselor for more information.

2019-2020 Course Listing
 
 
 
This coming year we offer the following courses
Leadership Education Training - This class has four levels, LET 1-4. These classes are designed to teach the values of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and give a sense of accomplishment, while instilling self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. The program’s focus is reflected in its mission statement, “To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens.” JROTC’s performance-based curriculum requires that cadets master the competencies, do the skills, apply the knowledge, and model or exhibit behaviors representing the desired attitudes. A custom-fitted uniform is worn once a week on the designated uniform day. There is no obligation to join the armed forces; however, satisfactory completion of two years can lead to advanced rank in the armed forces. College ROTC scholarships are available for outstanding students meeting college entrance requirements.
 
Rifle - This is a three year class, teaching Hunter's Safety and the safe handling of  firearms in addition to teaching the LET classes. Students that are in this class are required to attend and compete in at least 3 Drill Competitions as well as any Postal competitive shooting matches against other JROTC programs in the Cascade Mountain League.
 
 
This year we are offering a new course 
Drill & Ceremony - This course is designed for the Cadets who are interested in competing in both the Varsity or Junior Varsity Drill and Color Guard Teams.  This class provides in-depth training in the art of regulation and exhibition drill.  The curriculum extends farther on this subject than you can learn in the Leadership, Education and Training (LET) JROTC class.  Cadets will learn to perform, teach, and evaluate regulation and exhibition drill. This class provides training with a competitive edge.   Each Cadet is at a different level of training and continues to strive to improve their skills through teaching, evaluating, and analyzing regulation and exhibition drill.
