• A Message From the

    Assistant Principal in Charge of Athletics

    Welcome!  We are very excited that your son/daughter has made the decision to join an athletic program or co-curricular club!  Participation is an integral part of the educational process, allowing students to learn core values which will ultimately lead to achieving success.   
     
    The mission of our athletic programs and co-curricular clubs is to promote the intellectual, physical and moral development of students, within a positive, enjoyable and rewarding environment! 
     
    Participation will provide the opportunity for students to learn:
         - Both the present and long-term effects of self-discipline, commitment and accountability. 
         - The interplay between individual and team effort.
         - Humility, pride and self-esteem in both victory and defeat.
         - A skillful management of time.
         - Personal endurance and courage.
     
    The Matawan Athletics Core Values of "TIME":
     
    - Team
    - Integrity
    - Mutual Respect
    - Excellence Through Perseverance
     
    which are learned through participation, are crucial in the character development of children and young men and women.  In many cases, these core values taught and learned through extra-curricular participation tend to resurface in the classroom, thus improving overall student achievement!
     
    Congratulations on your son/daughter"s decision to "become involved!"
