Our kids WANT to have the opportunity to play an organized sport while in 6th grade at Darby, Kimmons, Chaffin, and Ramsey. 
A large majority of our kids already play very competitively and have been playing with the dreams of wearing that certain jersey or uniform for their three years of middle school. Sports and extracurricular school activities are great ways for kids to be involved in a safe, fun environment. Extracurricular’s are also a way for kids to get to know others and really enjoy being at school. 

Surrounding areas supply their students with organized sports from ages as young as 3rd grade, and continue that school pride throughout middle school. We want our Fort Smith students to have that same opportunity and to have yet another year to be able to compete at the level the surrounding schools are able to compete. 
The students in the upcoming 6th grade class have had a lot stolen from them because of Covid and having to share a last year with another grade. Their last year of elementary school that is usually filled with traditions have been taken away due to circumstances out of their control. Let them enjoy their first year of middle school and be able to get involved like past students going into Junior High were able to do. FSPS traditions are rich and we want our students to be able to continue those traditions. 
FSPS has done a great job of building a dream sports venue for both local high schools. Let’s give our amazing student athletes the opportunity they deserve to show their abilities as soon as possible and to have a year of middle school they can look forward to. The memories of their first year in middle school. The first 6th grade FSPS class to be in middle school!
