Sportsmanship

If I may, a comment about officiating and sportsmanship. Good and bad officiating is part of all sports and at all levels. If professional officials cannot get it right all of the time, it’s difficult to expect HS officials to get it right (all of the time). When they don’t, as a parent I know you want to scream, yell and voice your opinion. I’m asking that you refrain from doing this. It’s difficult enough to get officials to work our games and when parents lose control, it only makes matters worse. We’re the adults and for better or worse, it’s up to us as parents to set the example of appropriate behavior at athletic events. Former Acting Governor Richard Codey had legislation passed regarding fan behavior at athletic events. I think we do an outstanding job at BHS and I hope the positive behavior that we have exhibited in the past continues. Please review again the additional Sportsmanship information on the shsd web site.

BHS has won the NJSIAA SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS!

CHEER FOR BERNARDS - NOT AGAINST OUR OPPONENTS, FANS, COACHES OR OFFICIALS.

Respectfully,

Mike Hoppe
Athletic Director

Transportation

Athletes are encouraged to ride the bus to and from from all athletic contests for all of the obvious team building reasons. However, we realize that it may be more convenient for parents to drive them home on OCCASION. Please complete a parent P/U form, which can be found on the athletic webpage, and have the student athlete give it to his/her coach the day of the game.  Be sure the coach knows who you are and sees that your son/daughter is with you at the conclusion of the contest. Remember that parents are ONLY allowed to transport their own children!  
Bus Transportation to Polo Grounds

Attention Parents and Athletes:

There will be two buses available after school to transport student athletes to the Polo Grounds for games and/or practices every day, if there are seats available. The buses will be the LAST TWO buses parked in the "bus line" in front of the school.
