The athletic program at Monroe Public Schools is an integral component of the total educational experience and will offer your student valuable learning opportunities. It is our desire that participation in our program is an extension of what transpires in the classroom and echoes the vision and mission of our district. The opportunity to play for Monroe is a privilege and not a right, therefore we expect our athletes to behave accordingly. We will make every effort to offer the best in equipment, facilities and coaching. All athletes will abide by the Michigan High School Athletic Association, The Southeastern Michigan Conference as well as the Monroe Athlete Code of Conduct.
Parents should practice sportsmanship as well as their student athletes. Parents need to remember the purpose of educational athletics: to train young people for life, but also to allow student athletes to have fun. Parents can be the biggest role model for student athletes when it comes to their understanding of sportsmanship; therefore, parents should exhibit the qualities of fairness, courtesy and grace in winning and defeat at home or away games and events.
Parents’ actions, and reactions to situations, can have a significant impact, not only on their particular student athletes, but on the whole program. Parents should reflect on the possible consequences of their actions beforehand.
