Welcome Parents and Student-athletes,

I am glad that your child has decided to be a part of the Champion Schools Athletic Team for the. I am exceptionally excited for new talents to emerge on our teams. It will be an extremely fun season for everyone involved. However, it will take a great amount of hard work and discipline from the coaches, players, and parents. Being a part of the Champion Schools Varsity/JV Athletic program is a special honor and with that privilege come extra responsibilities.
Basic Rules:

  • Must maintain a C+ average or better.
  • Must consistently have all homework done and turned in on time.
  • Must stay out of trouble (school & home).
  • Must commit 100% to the team & school.
  • Must be able to attend scheduled practices and games.
  • Must have a positive attitude.
  • Must have enthusiasm for learning.
  • Must be a team player.
  • Must be a competitor.
  • Must love to HAVE FUN!!!

Additional Rules:
As a member of the Varsity/JV team and a student of Champion Schools, your child will be held at a higher standard. We always expect him/her to be on their best behavior. I will not tolerate any kind of trouble at home and especially at school. I reserve the right to dismiss any child from the program, if I believe they are not continually striving to uphold the standards given to them at the beginning of the season. Everyone involved in Stingers Athletics must show respect for the rules of the program.
Parents are also a part of this team and if the coaching staff feels that a parent is deterring their child from adhering to the rules, the child will be dismissed.

Each child will have a great opportunity to succeed in sports, if they follow the rules set forth by the coaching staff. The staff and I believe in discipline and fairness. Every child will get a chance to show their abilities if they demonstrate to us that they deserve to be a member of the Stingers Athletic Team. Please you and your child sign the last page if you believe that playing for the Stingers this year is a good idea for both of you.

Uniforms:

*Varsity Team Uniforms: The uniforms will include a warm-up shirt, jersey, shorts, and possibly shoes. Parent will have to provide some items such as Undershirt, and etc.
Players must have their entire uniform set to play in the games. If they do not have their entire outfit when it is time to travel, they will not play or travel. The uniform is only to be worn at games and not to school. Any lost items of the uniforms will come with additional fees. Anyone who violates the team uniform rule will be subjective to dismissal from the team.

Junior Varsity Team Uniform: Will vary depending on the sport. The students will be required to wear all issued uniforms to games. Parent will have to provide some items such as Undershirt, and etc.
Players must have their entire uniform set to play in the games. If they do not have their entire outfit when it is time to travel or play, they will not play or travel. The uniform is only to be worn at games and not to school. Any lost items of the uniforms will come with additional fees. Anyone who violates the team uniform rule will be subjective to dismissal from the team.

Fundraising:

This year we have a lot of amazing activities planned for the Athletic Department, but it will take a team effort to fundraise the money for these events. We will need to have car washes, bake sales, and concession stand proceeds. Any other suggestions for fundraisers are greatly appreciated. The money we raise will take care of the team expense such as field trips, parties, uniforms, etc. These events will be mandatory to attend for coaches, parents, and players. Each Varsity player is going to be required to fundraise a minimum amount of $150.00. Junior Varsity Players are going to be required to fundraise a minimum amount of $50.00 dollars.

Letter from the Superintendent 

May 5, 2020

Dear Champion Families,

I hope this letter finds you and ALL of your loved ones safe and well. We are all happy to hear that Governor Doug Ducey has announced the gradual re-opening of Arizona. In order for our economy to re-open, it is essential to open schools.  Superintendent Kathy Hoffman  is very optimistic that Arizona Schools will be opening for the upcoming School Year 2021. 

Report Cards and Awards are being prepared for distribution via Pick UP and US Mail. We are very proud of all of our Students (and Parents) as we transitioned to Online/ At-Home Learning.

Meal Program will continue throughout the Summer, with FREE Breakfast and Lunch being available for Pick Up, Monday-Friday 8:00-9:30am.   

We HOPE to have a FREE Summer Camp Program June 8-11, 15-18 and 22-25, 

Monday-Thursday 8am-noon. This is dependent on the advice of the Governor and the results of the pending reopening. You may contact the school to reserve a space in the Summer Program. We will keep you posted. 

We plan to open for School Year 2021, with the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL on July 27th. (unless closures continue)  What will school ‘look like’ after this COVID19 pandemic? Here are some important things to consider as you prepare for your children to return to school.

  1. Students should be prepared to Social Distance at School This means that children will not be sitting right next to each other, keeping space between each other in line, during lunch and recess. Playground equipment will not be used until we are sure that there is no risk.
  2. Students  should be up-to-date on their IMMUNIZATIONS.  The following link describes how providers can maintain Childhood Immunizations During COVID-19 Pandemic https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/pediatric-hcp.html. For more information on where to go for Immunizations: www.WeArePublicHealth.org The Roosevelt Immunization Clinic has been and will continue to operate as a WALK-IN  clinic while following social distancing and cleaning measures.
  3. Talk to your children about COVID19 Here is some helpful guidance from the CDC.https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/talking-with-children.html
  4. Students should bring a small personal bottle of sanitizer to school, and will be allowed to use it anytime. We also have sanitizer “magic soap” available in classrooms.
  5. Check for signs of illness if a student has a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your healthcare provider and keep your child at home and away from others as much as possible 

Here are some additional Resources provided by Maricopa County Public Health
