MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
On behalf of our coaches, sponsors and student participants of co-curricular activities, Welcome to Robertson High School, Home of the Cardinals and Lady Cardinals!
Thank you for making the decision to support your child’s choice to participate in the Las Vegas City Schools’ Co-Curricular Activities and Interscholastic Athletic Programs. All organized activities in life – whether it be work, play, or school-related - place expectations on participants. It is always our goal to develop young men and women into the best people they can be, both as students in the classroom and as athletes competing on the field or court. We have just completed a condensed and challenging NMAA COVID year this past school year and are thankful for all your support. We look forward to the 2021-2022 school year with great anticipation and excitement. We will continue to work diligently to ensure we maintain our focus of using athletics and co-curricular activities as a means to enhance our students' educational experience, all the while, keeping your children safe and maintaining sanitized facilities for your students and all who are involved.
The major goal of a co-curricular activities program is the same as any other educational program: To provide students with the opportunity to develop to their maximum potential and to teach life skills. The program's success is based on commitment by students, parents, coaches, sponsors, and the school community. This commitment is exemplified through our student participants' off-season workouts and competitive participation, ongoing volunteer efforts of parents, and a relentless desire of coaches/sponsors to prepare students for challenges they will face during middle school, high school and beyond.
Our co-curricular program consists of 22 athletic teams and 18 clubs and functions under the rules and guidelines set forth by New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA). In addition to complying with its rules and regulations, we wholeheartedly embrace the commitment to sportsmanship expressed in its Sportsmanship Initiative Program – “Sportsmanship It’s up to you” and will continue to strive to bring home a Director’s Cup to Robertson High School (www.nmact.org/directorscup )
Please keep in mind: Parents and fans are a tremendous asset to our co-curricular program, and we are extremely grateful for your cooperation, support, and loyalty Students are to compete, coaches are to coach, sponsors are to guide, officials administer the rules of the game to the best of their ability, and fans are encouraged to cheer in a positive manner for their team and show respect for their opponents. We strongly encourage all participants, both students and fans, to make note of this statement and govern yourselves accordingly.
Once again, I thank you for continuing to be a part of our students’ lives by attending athletic events, co-curricular activity events and supporting Robertson High School.
GO LADY CARDINALS!!
