Athletics Department Welcome Letter
The Athletic Department would like to welcome everyone to the new school year as we look forward to having the faculty, staff, and parents supporting the GWA athletic programs/events for the 2017-18 school year. Research by the National Association of Sports and Physical Education shows that students who participate in athletics have higher grade point averages, better attendance, lower dropout rates, fewer disciplinary problems, higher graduation rates, and better success in college than non-participants.
During the 2017-18 year the Athletic Department plans to develop the program in several areas by laying the foundation and program infrastructure in the following manner: evaluate the athletic facilities; encourage higher academic standards for student-athletes; enhance communication with faculty, parents and staff through the use of the social media; collaborate with the marketing department on enhancing the athletic website; utilize the MPR electronic message board for athletic notifications; create a Mustang Athletic Booster club; and promote team sports at the interscholastic level with other international schools within the Casablanca area.
Also, the Athletic Department will promote and encourage collaboration, goal setting, discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, and valuable life-skills to help our student-athletes be contributing members of the GWA community.
The Athletic Department and GWA’s administrative team are excited to have an athletic program that will benefit our young men and women by modeling mentorship.
