Groups to work on JROTC Confidence Course Saturday
Work continues on the new confidence course for the Garden City High School JROTC program. A number of organizations from the community will help construct the course from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
The course is located at the north end of the high school property and will be approximately 2,800 feet in length with 12 different challenges. It will be a series of physical and logical tasks, which must be completed in a specific order and time limit, using the best technique. The course is designed to test strength, endurance and performance under stress.
Organizations helping during the day include Garden City Electric Department, Home Depot, Kansas National Guard, Marines, Underground Specialist and the GCHS JROTC cadets.
The course is expected to be completed for the upcoming school year. The first day of school for USD 457 is Monday, with a half-day orientation for all students in kindergarten through fifth grade, seventh-grade, ninth-grade and all students new to Garden City Public Schools. The first full day of school for Garden City Public Schools is Tuesday when all classes will be in session for the start of the 2013-14 school year.
