WELCOME TO SJMS ATHLETICS

 BE A ROLE MODEL FOR ALL

As you enjoy your experience of attending our athletic events, please keep in mind the true purpose of interscholastic athletic participation. The wins and losses are secondary as compared to the life lessons that are being practiced by our student-athletes each and every day of training and competition. The values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, socialization, leadership, discipline, and CHARACTER translate into success later in life.  Please do your part in demonstrating outstanding behavior that will reflect positively on the school district and community.

With your support we can continue to provide our student-athletes with quality educational experiences!  Enjoy your visit!  GO REDWINGS!
