STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
A comprehensive and balanced activities program is an essential complement to the basic program of instruction. The activities program should provide opportunities for youth to further develop interests and talents in sports, debate/speech, drama, journalism, music, student clubs, student government, and academic-related areas. Participation in these activities provides students with a lifetime basis for character development, leisure activities, and community service.
The opportunity for participation in a wide variety of student-selected activities is a vital part of the student's educational experiences. Participation is a privilege that carries with it responsible representation of the school, your family, the community, and the activity.
The interscholastic activities program shall be conducted in accordance with district policies, rules and regulations. Jefferson High School Board of Trustees believes winning is important, however, winning with good sportsmanship, dignity, and fairly is most important. At all times, the activity program must be conducted in such a way so as to justify it as an educational activity. Coaches should teach participants to respect other students, their teammates and their opponents, and teach them to genuinely thank their opponents for competing with class. The victory of self-discipline is seen as the greatest of all victories.
Interscholastic activities competition adds to our school success and helps all students develop pride in their school and peer achievements. The ultimate goals of the activities should be: 1) to realize the value of team work, and 2) to develop and improve positive Citizenship and character qualities among the participants.
