Athletics can be a valuable component of a student's educational experience. Through the promotion of self-discipline, dedication, sportsmanship, teamwork, accountability, and commitment to achievement, athletics fosters many of the qualities and educational values we endorse as a district. Athletic competition is a forum through which students may push themselves and their limitations, allowing them to develop self-confidence and enhance their self-esteem.
