During 8th grade registration, all incoming Freshman should select PE as an Elective. Once try-outs and team rosters are submitted by Coaches to Counselors, Counselors will make the schedule change to an Athletic period. A student may not be placed in the Athletic period if not on the team roster.  Any question please see your counselor.

Absolutely, YES!  All STUDENT ATHLETES must maintain a 2.0 GPA, pass 4 classes, have no more than one "F" or one "U" in citizenship to be eligible to participate on any of our sport teams. Each Quarter grading report reflects a students eligibility. The Athletic Director will notify students and coaches of their eligibility status. We are developing STUDENT ATHLETES and support academic and athletic expectations.
