It is the mission of the Clinton Public Schools Athletics Department to cultivate intellect and character in partnership with families and the community. Students learn in a rigorous academic and student-centered environment that prepares them to become resourceful, productive, healthy citizens in a global society.
The interscholastic athletic programs at the Morgan School and Jared Eliot Middle School are consistent with, and contributes to, the basic mission of the schools. As an integral part of the total educational process, participation in athletics make significant contributions toward helping students grow in mind, body, and spirit. Sports participation is an effective way to teach students about good character, discipline, teamwork, and the benefits of a healthy, fit body. The Morgan School’s athletic program aims to:
- Promote self-discipline and responsibility, and teach the value of sustained effort.
- Develop teamwork, good sportsmanship, and a competitive spirit.
- Build school and community pride and unity.
- Develop fitness and athletic skills and teach the lifelong benefits of sports and fitness for physical and mental well-being.
Participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege, not a right. Students develop personally and academically when they participate in interscholastic activities. Students earn the privilege to participate by adhering to high standards of personal conduct and academic performance. Personal conduct and attitude of student participants must reflect high standards of respect, loyalty, attitude, and morality.
Respect yourself and others. Respect environment and property. Respect learning.
