As the Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics, I would like to welcome all of you to the 2013-2014 school year. I am extremely excited about the new school year. At Comsewogue we have fifty-nine athletic teams and we are fortunate to have outstanding athletic facilities at both the high school and JFK. Twenty-one of our twenty-three varsity athletic teams were named NYS Scholar Athlete Team Award Recipients last school year. Our fitness facility at the high school continues to be used by our physical education classes and our athletic teams. All of our grass fields are being used by our physical education classes and athletic teams. The three tennis courts at the middle school and six tennis courts at the high school continue to be widely used by students and community members.

The Physical Education and Health departments continue to strive towards having all students establish life-long fitness skills that will become part of their lives forever. As educators it is our responsibility to instill the qualities of a healthy mind and body. At the primary and secondary levels the Health and Physical Education curriculum will continue to be aligned with New York State Learning Standards. At the high school we are very excited about our project adventure course that will be used in physical education this school year. At the elementary level we have incorporated a walking/running unit into our curriculum and hope that all of our schools and the Comsewogue community will be participating in our annual 5K Warrior Music/Athletic Scholarship Race and Fun Run that is open to all. It is a great event that is part of the wonderful history that we have at Comsewogue. The date for this year’s Warrior Scholarship Run will be Sunday, May 18, 2014. Stay tuned for upcoming information on how to register.

Our interscholastic athletic program will follow four basic principles that will be the foundation of Comsewogue Athletics.

• Commitment/Dedication

Commit to the sport you have decided to participate in and dedicate yourself to be the best you can be.

• Passion

Believe in what you are doing and make it an important part of your life.

• Effort

Work hard and good things will happen.

• Have Fun

Enjoy what you are doing and make the most of each moment.

All our teams’ schedules and directions can be found on the district website. You can also go to the Section XI website at www.sectionxi.orgfor information pertaining to Suffolk County Athletics.

I am excited about the new school year and I am proud to be a part of the Comsewogue team.

Go Warriors!
