Dear Parents and Perspective Athletes,
Welcome all returning and incoming Cavaliers to the Charles Patterson Middle School Athletics Department. I believe that athletics is an extension of the classroom, and that it contributes greatly to the overall education of the student-athlete. Athletics teaches self-discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, and the competitiveness necessary to succeed later in life. The athletic program is based on sound educational principles, and through our physical education program, intramurals, and athletics; I expect that all students in the program will develop their physical, mental, and social potential.
Athletics allow those students who have demonstrated a desire for further development, the opportunity to participate on a higher level of skill and competition. At the earliest levels, skill development and broad participation are emphasized. As the athlete progresses through the program, more advanced and rigorous competition necessitate higher skill levels, and a more selective process of choosing participants. Patterson Middle School is fortunate to have an outstanding beginning tradition of athletic excellence and outstanding coaches and student-athletes.
I am committed to the individual growth of each of our athletic program participants, by facilitating excellence in citizenship, academics, sportsmanship, and athletic skills. My program objectives are to see that the highest standards of athletic competition are maintained throughout the program, while ensuring that our primary responsibility is to the student participants in the program. I will strive to provide an opportunity for the complete development of the student-athlete: personally, academically, and athletically.
