Advanced Level Students are eligible to join this “Special Team Of Role Models” by working closely with a designated Intermediate Level “Buddy” or assisting in a particular class. STORM Team members ideally are students who are, or wish to be, the kind of student others look up to. If you performed this extra duty well, you can be on the STORM Team and wear the STORM patch.
This assignment will have you work under supervision of the Intermediate Level class Instructor in order for you to learn important life skills such as dedication, punctuality, responsibility, and much more. As with SWAT, you will truly learn to understand your own curriculum better by having to “think” through it as you work with intermediate and/or beginner level students. STORM Team members are expected to “lead by example”
Once you’ve successfully passed all the above requirements, you will be formally introduced, presented with STORM Team patch, and promoted at the following promotional ceremony.
