SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, March 9, 2011 Page 8 ]Chtrger ,! n MENU Athletic Director " M:~h !:: .-la~SB:! !~k s, p ~~ milk The winter athletic seasons are complete. All of the teams had success. The girls basketball team had 16 wins, the wrestling team had two wrestlers finish 5th at the state tournament, the cheerleaders won a competi- tion with their comp. squad and the boys basketball team never quit hustling. We had about 75 students partici- pate in the winter athletic seasons in grades 7-12. The students involved all had an opportunity to learn some lessons of hard work, dedication, and team responsibil- ity. They also were able to enjoy athletic competition. As I reflect on this past season, I find myself proud of the student athletes who have given their absolute all, and in the end have come up short. It is easy to talk about sportsmanship, fair play and handling adversity when you are winning or when things are going your way. It's a completely different story when you're in the heat of competition and a crucial call doesn't go your way, or you've just suffered a gut-wrenching loss or a season/ career ending defeat. These are the moments that test a person's ideals and beliefs and when true character is revealed. Coaches, teachers, school administrators and parents have chosen to be present in those critical moments when young adults are being tested in the face of competition. All of us are role models to these students. If they fail to pass the test and their behavior and actions are not appropriate, each of us uses that teachable moment to redirect, refocus, and prepare them for the next test. This is truly important work, and I am honored to be a part of it. The annual benefit game between the seniors from the Red Rock Conference and the Tomahawk Conference in basketball will be played in Faiffax on March 18. The girls play at 6:00 and the boys play at about 8:00. Some of the proceeds from that game will go towards Clay Peterson's medical expenses. More details will be released about this game next week. Spring will eventually come and so will spring sports. Track and Softball practice starts on March 14 and Baseball and Golf practice starts on March 21. There may be some delayed starts to practice because of the weather. Steve LeBoutillier is now the combined Head Coach for girls and boys track. He is assisted by Sara Arfsten and Dan Peterson. The track teams open up with an indoor meet at USD on March 29. Tuesday: French toast sticks, cheese omelet, sau- sage, juice, bread, milk Wednesday: Baked ham, mashed potatoes/gravy, vege- tables/dip, fruit, bread, milk Thursday: Chicken chow mein/rice or noodles, vegeta- bles, fruit, bread, milk Friday: Soup/crackers, max sticks, vegetables/dip, fruit, bread, milk a MSHSL The new section alignments for the next two years will be released this Friday. Unfortunately, it looks like RRC/ WWG will still be in Class AA in baseball and softball, Football will be in 9-man with our adjusted enrollment of 136--the cutoff is 165. There may be some adjust- ments to the numbers this week! Jeff Farber, our boys basketball scorebook keeper has retired after 16 years. Please contact me if you are interested in getting a great look from behind the scorer's table at all boys basketball home games next year.

Ada is the author of Parenting on Purpose: Red Yellow Green Framework for Respectful Discipline. Ada states, "There is no substitute for home and for parents. We need to help par- ents to succeed so that their children will succeed. Adults need to model and encourage responsible behavior, prob- lem solving skills and value 8-12 the sharing of feelings." The 5-15 evening program will intro- duce her simple but effective Red, Yellow, Green frame- 222 work.

Parents of all age children will learn ways to build fam- ily strengths that make a dif- ference and learn, how as children grow and change, the parent's role must shift. Parents gradually progress from protectors to key adults who assist and guide in the child achieving his or her potential. Middle school age stu- 202 dents will hear Ada discuss 202 her Red, Yellow, Green 202 framework during the after- noon. She will discuss the 540 necessity of communication 512 and promote a message of 485 belonging that shows kids they CAN do it.
