  • #UBeThere - Plug In, Press Playy

    12.10.18

    Originally posted December 10, 2018 Orchestras overwhelm the senses when all sounds are present. Your attendance is instrumental. Without you, our power is greatly diminished.   Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance.  Your sad solo becomes a symphony of none. Making beautiful music together is more than  just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Show Up, Take Down

    11.26.18

    Originally posted November 26, 2018 Freestyle isn’t a successful strategy when it comes to attendance.  If you’re going to take it to the mat, you must consistently make contact, and that means being present.  A half-nelson won’t cut it.  We need you fully engaged. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences keep you off the mat, and you take the fall. Maybe it’s time for a reversal. A victory is more than just showing up . . . but it’s ... continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Daily Habit, Amazing Routine

    11.19.18

    Originally posted November 19, 2018 School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life.   Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer.  A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . .  but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

    11.08.18

    Originally posted November 8, 2018 Not showing up for class is behavior unbefitting an officer. You need determination and grit to have a successful life and career in the reserved armed forces – and that means being there. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences keep you out of JROTC. A successful commission is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading
