IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Today, more than ever, it’s so important for the student-athlete to understand what is expected of them, both in the classroom and field of play, and want to accomplish those expectations.  There are so many outside influences by personal trainers, tutors and parents.  How well do you analyze your teachers and coaches?  Do you know their expectations?  Are you flexible and try to fit in, or are you defiant and want to do things your way?  The student-athlete who truly understands what is expected of them has the greatest chance of achievement.  Instead of worrying about what’s best for you, think in a different way. Think about what you must do in order to impress your teachers and coaches, thus giving you a greater opportunity for success!

This week is Homecoming and below is a list of Spirit Week themes.  Please participate by dressing according to the theme.
