The school year has come very fast and we are ready to go with the fall activities.  Our first home volleyball date was August 28th vs. Sumner/Fredricksburg and the following home date will be September 2nd vs. Riceville and Clarskville. Varsity Football is  on the road August 5th @ New Hampton and return home on September 5th vs. Hampton-Dumont.  Cross Country is on the road for their season opener @ Charles City and will host our meet on October 4th.  

JH Activities started this week and are off to a running start.  We currently have 20 student/athletes out in 7th grade volleyball, 16 in 8th grade volleyball, 23 out for 7th grade football, and 25 out for 8th grade football.  It is our mission to have students involved in activities so please encourage them to participate in any school activity. REMINDER that JH activities on Wednesday nights will be done by/close to 5:30.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us out with home event tasks.  Please contact us if you would be interested and could lend a hand.   Many hands makes light work!

Our #1 priority here at Crestwood Schools and throughout the state of Iowa for coaches, fans, and students is sportsmanship.  Please support our athletes and keep the focus of our activities on them.  Thank you for your support throughout all activities!

The Character Counts Coalition believes character is comprised of six core ethical values. Those core ethical values are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. All of us can teach, enforce, advocate and model these six core ethical values by doing the following:

Always pursue victory with honor
Demonstrate and demand integrity at all times
Observe and enforce the letter and spirit of the rules
Don’t engage in, or tolerate, dishonesty, cheating or dishonorable conduct
Don’t compromise character for the sake of winning

Treat participants, officials, and the traditions of the sport with respect
Don’t engage in, or tolerate, verbal abuse of opponents or officials
Win with grace and lose with dignity
Treat members of visiting teams as guests, not adversaries

Be a positive role model at all times
Be as committed to performing your best in the classroom as in athletics

Treat everyone fairly
Be open-minded
Never take unfair advantage of others

Place the educational, emotional, physical and moral well-being of everyone above winning

Promote sportsmanship by honoring the rules and goals of the sport
Establish codes of conduct for coaches, contestants and spectators
Discourage the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs
Safeguard the integrity of sports by complying with all laws and rules related to sports gambling

Remember, in athletics, as in life, CHARACTER COUNTS! Excerpts taken from CHARACTER COUNTS!, a project of the Josephson Institute for Ethics.
