Dear Eagle Families,
We would like to welcome you all to another year of athletics at American High School. We pride ourselves on holding our students and athletes to high expectations; with the belief that when held to high expectations our students and athletes will perform at a higher level both athletically and academically. The American High School Athletic Department’s philosophy is that the student athlete’s pursuits on the field should be equally measured with those off of it. To that end, American High School athletes should pursue personal growth through academic work, team experiences, and as an ambassador of our district. The department strives to maintain an outstanding athletics program, conducted in a manner that sets an example for good sportsmanship. Our primary concern is the education of the student-athlete and we expect all who choose to participate in our sports programs to be responsible student-athletes. We hope you will take full advantage of this opportunity to get a top-notch education while participating in our athletic programs.
In order to be able to provide this enriching experience for our students, our school is requesting an $80.00 donation per sport for each student. This donation will help offset the operating cost of nearly $65,000 for our Athletic Department, which includes officials, tournament entries, medical supplies, safety equipment, etc. A student's participation in athletic programs is not dependent on these financial contributions, nor will they receive any type of punishment for not contributing. However, athletics at American High School is self-sufficient and cannot survive without the generosity of our families and community members.
We invite you to attend our various sports events and look forward to meeting you. Thank you for your continued support of American High School Athletics.
Brian Hashimoto & Kenneth Peffer
Athletic Directors, American High School
