All Sports Mandatory Parent Meeting - Monday August 20th

Parents Preseason Meeting Invitation for Newton Junior High and High School Parents & Athletes

Dear Parents:

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!!
