Objectives of MS Dads Club
Please contact Bob Galbraith or Jim Hudson for more information regarding the MS Dads Club.
- The MS Dads Club is soliciting dads to volunteer their homes for future meetings. $10 suggested contribution by dads attending should cover the cost of food and beverages. Please contact Bob Galbraith (email@example.com).
- The MS Dads Club is looking for someone to help in the development of our website (see Action Item 2 below for more information). Please contact Bob Galbraith (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help.
- The MS Dads Club is in the process of forming sub-committees to concentrate on Sports, Drug and Alcohol Abuse and Community Service (see Action Item 3 below for more information). We hope to have these committees established by 3/15. Please contact Bob Galbraith (email@example.com) if you would like to participate.
- The MS Community Service Club will be participating in Habitat for Humanity projects on Saturday, March 21 and Saturday, May 9. Please contact Julie Meade for details.
- The organizers of the very popular Teen Center, a highlight for our MS children, are looking for dads to help chaperone these events which take place monthly on Friday nights from 7 pm – 9 pm. The very presence of a few dads at the Teen Center goes a long way in helping to manage the event. Do not worry if your child says they would be mortified if you were there - you are unlikely to see them more than a fleeting moment. Please contact Sunny Mulford (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to help.

As per the Commissioner of Education, sixth grade students are not permitted to participate in competition with other schools. After school opportunities for sixth graders are incorporated in the elementary after school program.
Modified Sports Program Goals and Objectives
-Provide the student athlete an opportunity to experience a new sport or to continue to develop sport specific skills
-Allow the student to develop skills of time management, commitment, teamwork and leadership
-Develop skills in a competitively safe environment considering factors such a physical size and skill development
-Students are not "cut" based on skill, but there is an expectation of commitment to the program for at least 3 days per week
-Quality playing time is an expectation – Quality does not always mean equal

The Selection/Classification Program was designed for mature and exceptionally skilled students to advance to an upper level. This program, as defined by the State Education Department, is not to be used to fill rosters or to provide a place for middle school students when no modified program is offered. The process begins with a coach's recommendation to the Athletic Director, and includes the following components: parent permission form, maturation physical by the school physician, physical fitness test, skills tryout, and academic review.
A complete Modified Sports Packet is available through the Athletic Office. For additional information, please call 395-0500 x3234.
