School Dress Code

The purpose of the Challenger Middle Dress Code is to encourage students to focus on the learning process without the distractions of unsuitable dress and grooming, as well as to develop good habits that will lead to "dressing for success" in college and career. Students shall maintain a clean, orderly appearance at all times. The responsibility for the personal appearance of the student rests with the parent/guardian and the student. Personal appearance shall not disrupt the educational process. A student who is dressed appropriately is demonstrating respect for self and others, as well as contributes to a safe and orderly learning environment. The following establishes the minimum acceptable standards for student dress to be interpreted and enforced by the administration. Each principal has the authority with his or her staff and community, as permitted by School Board policy, to establish additional standards at individual schools.

Intramural Sports Announcement 
Hey there sports fans! If your student is interested in trying out for any sports this year, they MUST have a physical completed by a doctor in order to step foot on the court or field for tryouts. This district mandate will be strictly enforced and is in the best interest of all of our student-athletes and their well-being. Below you will see an excellent opportunity to have a physical completed before our sports season kicks off with basketball. Remember, your student's doctor must sign their physical form clearing them to play sports and you turn in a copy of this form to the front office before your student is allowed to try out for any sport. Please direct any and all questions to Bethany Sierocinski, [email protected]

We are so excited for the start of the school year, and the start of our sports seasons. If your student plans on trying out for any sports at all this school year, they must have the attached form completed by a medical professional.

Any student who does not submit a FHSAA EL2 Physical Form will not be allowed to participate in any sports this school year. This form is good for the entire school year, so we encourage you to take your student for their sports physical as soon as you are able.
