Mr. Ignacio Ramirez
As we enter November, I would like to thank you for all your support of our students and staff. WHS is embarking on some new initiatives that are aimed at improving our students academically, in athletics, and their lives. One such initiative is “Waterford Committed.” I’m sure those of you that attended the John Underwood presentation on 10/14 got to see and hear the benefits of proper nutrition, sleep, and abstinence from alcohol, marijuana and other drugs. I received feedback asking what our next steps are and also heard some concerns that we hope to clarify soon as we hold meetings for each school sport and extracurricular activity group.
Students who choose to participate and represent WHS in sports and extra-curricular activities need to hold themselves to a higher standard of behavior on and off campus. Waterford Committed is our students’ commitment to higher standards of behavior and healthier choices. It is each individual’s commitment to be free from drugs, alcohol, and other unhealthy behaviors. Part of the program will be the implementation of a code of conduct that will describe the expectations of our students with penalties for not holding themselves to the code of conduct. My feeling is that Waterford Committed will give our students a reason to not give into peer pressure and stay away from environments that foster unhealthy choices. As soon as Winter Sports begin, each coach will call a team meeting to discuss and answer questions in regards to Waterford Committed. Each student trying out for each sport will be required to attend the meeting and agree to abide by our new code of conduct. Our code of conduct is currently under review and should be ready to distribute to parents and students soon. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office and we’ll be happy to assist you.
