All Sports Mandatory Parent Meeting - Monday August 20th
Parents Preseason Meeting Invitation for Newton Junior High and High School Parents & Athletes
You and your student-athlete are invited to attend a preseason athletic meeting that will include school administrators. This meeting will take place on MONDAY, AUGUST 20TH at 6:30 p.m., and will be held in the JH GYM. The general purpose of the meeting is to make students and their parents aware of the obligations they must meet in order to have the privilege of participating in interscholastic athletics. Besides reviewing the school’s essential eligibility standards, our athletic policies and/or code of conduct and reviewing policies and procedures related to topics like sportsmanship and health and concussion/sports medicine issues, attendees will also have the opportunity to break down into smaller groups to meet with the coaches of the students’ particular sport. We hope you will join us for this informative meeting since attendance is a required condition in order for your student to be eligible to compete for our school. Thank you for your attention to this matter!
Hope you all enjoy your summer and I look forward to seeing you on Monday, August 20th!!

The Newton Local School District believes that participation in athletics provides a wealth of opportunity and experience that assist students in personal growth, self-expression, mental alertness and physical growth. Not everyone can be in athletics. Athletics is extracurricular. Participation in athletics can therefore require great personal sacrifice of time me and energy. It also requires a desire on the part of the individual athlete to improve as an individual as well as a team. It should be understood that participation is a privilege and not a right. Participation does not constitute playing time. As a team member the athlete will learn his/her role on the team and how that role fits in the framework for the common cause of the team. Newton athletes represent the best our school and community have to offer. This responsibility cannot be taken lightly. Athletic opportunities are an excellent complement to the academic course of study and help to provide the student athlete with a well-rounded education.
