Thomas G. Pullen Athletics

Mission Statement

 

Thomas G. Pullen Middle School is committed to excellence in athletics as part of a larger commitment to excellence in arts and education.

 

The guiding principle behind Thomas G. Pullen’s participation in Middle School athletics is our belief in its educational value for our students. Interscholastic athletics promotes character traits of high value to personal development and success in later life.

These include the drive to take one’s talents to the highest level of performance; embracing the discipline needed to reach high standards; learning to work with others as a team in pursuit of a common goal; and adherence to codes of fairness and respect. Athletics also plays an important role in creating a sense of community in our middle school.

Thomas G. Pullen’s mission defines expectations both on the field and off. In the name of excellence, Thomas G. Pullen aims for a level of athletic performance that will frequently produce winning seasons and the realistic opportunity to compete for team or individual championships.

 

Our mission also requires that Pullen athletes be students first, that they be admitted with careful attention to their academic record and motivation, that they benefit from Pullen’s educational programs and make satisfactory progress toward a high level of performance within the classroom and their specified arts practice, and that their attrition and academic success rates be comparable to those of other students.

Pullen is also committed to the physical and emotional well-being of student-athletes and to the social development of the whole person. We recognize that great demands are placed on students who participate in interscholastic athletics, and we are committed to providing support to help them manage these demands and get the most out of their Pullen experience. Athletes are also expected to adhere to a level of conduct that brings credit to themselves and the school and uphold the values of citizenship and service.

 

The mission of the athletics program ultimately is that of Pullen itself: “to engage the mind, to elevate the spirit, and stimulate the best effort of all who are associated with Thomas G. Pullen middle school.”
