Hayes Middle School  8th Grade Basketball Expectations

 

Dear Parents and Student-Athletes,

 

Playing sports for Grand Ledge Public Schools is a privilege. Along with that privilege comes a few expectations that are to be followed in order to be a part of the Hayes Middle School 8th Grade Basketball Team.

 

As a teacher and a coach, I feel very strongly that academics and behavior are the number one priority when it comes to student-athletes.  With this in mind, these expectations are very important to me.  If they cannot be followed, then the priorities of the student-athlete are not in the proper order.  School needs to be the number one focus.  If a student-athlete loses that focus, they will be asked to not participate and concentrate on school instead of athletics.  Thank you for your support in helping Hayes Middle School hold our student-athletes to a high standard.

 

Sincerely,

Coach Helmic
