Interscholastic athletics play an important role in the educational program of our student-athletes at Morris Central School and we encourage their success in the classroom as well as on the field. In addition, we strive to teach the concepts of hard work, dedication and commitment. Participation in athletics at the high school level has been shown to help students develop both basic and life skills, learn morals and values, develop self-discipline and self esteem and practice positive sportsmanship, thus improving their academic performance and preparation for life challenges.
Participation in interscholastic athletics is considered a privilege rather than a right. If that student accepts the privilege of being a member of Morris High School athletic team, he/she must adhere to the rules and regulations, and demonstrate the type of behavior and responsibility related to this privilege.
