Our expectation is that our student-athletes are students first, athletes second. Our programs want to model positive behaviors and academic success. We want to build positive character and teach life skills. Rio Rancho MS is a feeder to both Rio Rancho and Cleveland High School. In order to be part of our high school programs, student-athletes must focus on being the best they can be in the classroom and in their athletic programs. Student-athletes must work hard, become a student of the game, build game speed and strength, and doing this consistently so that when they get to the high school level, they have a chance to be part of the high school athletic programs.
Please encourage your child to listen to morning announcements for information. If you have any questions you may contact me.
**Students wishing to watch inside home games will need to have a parent or guardian present to attend. This is due to the poor behavior we have been dealing with.**
Please be prompt when picking your child up after games and practices.
Any questions please feel free to contact me.
