I am Mr. Peraino, the Athletic Director, Physical Education teacher, and Sport Academy coach here at Fort McMurray Composite High School. As Athletic Director, I strongly believe that athletics can be a tool to teach self-discipline, self-motivation, work ethic, sportsmanship, dedication, and being a team player. Athletics and participation in extra-curricular activities is proven to positively effect academic success. As Athletic Director, I also emphasis to our coaches the importance of good character and being a positive role model for the student-athletes. The tools and qualities gained through athletics will benefit our student-athletes for life after school.
