Dear Parent/Guardian:
My name is Janell Haggerty, and I am the athletic director at Thomas Edison Middle School (TEMS). I would like to give you and your child a better understanding of the sports programs we offer here at TEMS. 

We have sports programs for girl's and boy's soccer, cross country, basketball, and volleyball. Prior to the season students interested in a sport will receive an informational letter that will detail try out dates, times, and required paperwork.

Permission to Participate and Emergency Form

Physical Form

Your child MUST have a physical on file with our school nurse that has been completed within the past thirteen months prior to the tryout date. In addition, your child must have a “permission to participate” form and a “medical emergency” form filled out and handed in to Ms. Haggerty prior to try-outs. Students that do not turn in the above paperwork are not permitted to try out for the team. These forms are available in several locations including the main office, in your child’s physical education class, on the physical education bulletin board, on the bridge during the morning arrival, and they are attached to the bottom of this page. Should you have any questions regarding eligibility you can contact the coaches, school nurse (ext. 17156), or myself.
