Philosophy:

 

Interscholastic activities are an integral part of the total curriculum at Knob Noster High School and Middle School. It is our goal to develop and conduct an activity program consistent with the philosophy of education in the Knob Noster R-VIII School District. Activity participation should contribute to health and happiness, development of physical skills, emotional maturity, social competence, moral values, a sense of cooperation, a spirit of competition, self- discipline, a realization of group goals, and an understanding of the democratic processes. Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege, rather than a right or obligation. Students are required to meet standards and requirements prescribed by organizations in which they hold membership. (Copies of individual coaches/sponsors rules and procedures are filed in the athletic director’s office and/or principal’s office.

4. To teach the rules and skills of the extracurricular activities.  

 

5. To help the participant develop academically both in accomplishments and attitudes.  

 

6. To promote good sportsmanship and appreciation of competitions in general so that the participant may function in society both as a spectator as well as a participant.

MSHSAA- PHILOSOPHY OF SPIRIT TEAMS: Being a spirit team member is a privilege and honor. Spirit team members should be the school’s most effective student leaders. Spirit teams are in a position of great influence and high standards of conduct are essential. Personal behavior communicates! Appropriate behavior will help earn the respect of the student body and this is the core of developing effective school spirit and student involvement.
