    GRAHAM HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT MISSION STATEMENT

     

    GRAHAM HIGH SCHOOL IS COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE IN ATHLETICS AS PART OF A LARGER COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE OF EDUCATION.

     

     

    ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT PHILOSOPHY

     

    GRAHAM HIGH SCHOOL BELIEVES THAT ATHLETIC PROGRAMS ARE SIGNIFICANT TO THE EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE STUDENT. THE ATHLETIC PROGRAM PROVIDES A VARIETY OF EXPERIENCES TO HELP IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF FAVORABLE HABITS AND ATTITUDES IN THE STUDENT-ATHLETE THAT WILL HELP PREPARE THEM FOR LIFE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL.

     

    ATHLETICS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE LIFE OF GRAHAM STUDENTS AS THEY LEARN A GREAT DEAL FROM THEIR PARTICIPATION IN INTERSCHOLASTIC ATHLETICS. LESSONS IN SPORTSMANSHIP, TEAMWORK, COMPETITION AND HOW TO WIN AND LOSE GRACEFULLY ARE INTEGRAL PARTS OF OUR ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT GOALS.

     

    ATHLETICS ALSO ENCOURAGES OUR ATHLETES TO DEVELOP A SENSE OF WELL BEING. INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS WILL DEVELOP A HEALTHY SELF-CONCEPT AS WELL AS A HEALTHY BODY. ATHLETIC COMPETITION PROMOTES SCHOOL SPIRIT AND HELPS, STUDENTS, SPECTATORS AND PARTICIPANTS DEVELOP PRIDE IN THEIR SCHOOL.

     

    GRAHAM HIGH SCHOOL FURTHER ENCOURAGES THE DEVELOPMENT AND PROMOTION OF SPORTSMANSHIP, ETHICS AND INTEGRITY IN ALL PHASES OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. THIS INCLUDES ADMINISTRATORS, PARTICIPANTS, COACHES, PARENTS, FANS, SPIRIT GROUPS AND SUPPORT/BOOSTER GROUPS.

     

     

    THINK R.E.D

    RESPECT, DETERMINED TO SUCCEED AND EXPECT EXCELLENCE.
