DECEMBER STUDENT EQUITY TRAINING

Between December 12th and 13th, administrators presented to every English class on the district equity policy. They also shared the WESCO league sportsmanship guidelines.


Sportsmanship Guidelines:

I will be positive and use respectful language toward players, coaches, officials, and other spectators.


I will respect the abilities and sensitivities of our opponents and officials, regardless of the outcome of the contest.


I will remember that my actions reflect on others, including students, school, and the community.


I will appreciate all good plays and players whether they compete for my team or my opponent.

I will remember that school athletics and activities are an extension of the classroom, and that learning is taking place.
