The role as a parent orguardian in the education of students is vital, which includes the active involvement in athletic and extra-curricular programs at Middletown High School. It is important for everyone involved to realize that student organizations are a part of education, and that the benefits go far beyond the final product or event.
There is a value system, established at home and nurtured in the school that helps young people develop the abilities they will need throughout life. Trustworthiness, citizenship, fairness, respect, dedication and commitment are lifetime values taught. These are the core principles of
athletic and extra-curricular programs.
Parents can have perhaps the biggest influence of all on a child’s attitude and behavior as a student and as a citizen. The leadership role a parent takes will help influence our children and our community for years to come.
Last summer (2011), the Middletown School Committee approved the revisions to the Chemical Health and Student Safety Policy. The goal is to maintain a high level of health and safety for all Middletown students.
