"RACE TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL"
Athletics Community Feedback Group
The MTRS Athletics Community Feedback Group will meet on Thursday September 16.
The group is undertaking a number of projects including helping to connect our MTRS Athletes with our Elementary Schools in the district. Plans include MTRS Athletes visiting our Elementary Schools in an effort to showcase our sports, providing demonstrations, and establishing a familiar connection with our athletes and sports that we offer at MTRS!
The group will also be conducting a needs assessment and looking at making smaller, more immediate improvements to help bolster the athletics experience both inside and outside of the building. In the next few months, the group will conduct a facilities walk-through and create a comprehensive athletic upgrade list. Once this list has been created, the group will then solicit feedback from the wider school community. In the interim, plans are currently in place to update MTRS athletic playing surfaces over the next several months.
In addition to the facilities assessment, the stakeholder group is creating a student-athlete survey to be utilized at the end of each sports season. This important student survey will help students share critical feedback on their experiences and share ideas.
