*S.M.A.R.T. goal (Big Idea):
All students from Grades 3 - 6 (Upper Elementary) will be given an opportunity by choice to compete as "student-athletes" to represent SLES (see below school standards) to the best of their academic & athletic capabilities both on & off the playing field.
*The goal of our athletics is also supported by the DOE's take on Extracurricular Activities:
To implement a co-curricular after-school program for student-athletes to: 1) practice good nutrition, physical, & health choices, 2) become physical active, 3) Focus on GLOs #1-6 & Habits of Mind Character, traits, & to 4) have them find a sense of belonging & to build positive relationships.
