One of the elements that stands out in the athletic programs at Tongue River High School is the number of programs offered.

Steve Hanson, in a recent report to Sheridan County School District 1 trustees, said 16 programs are offered.

Hanson said the overall participation of students in athletics at Tongue River High School over a five-year average is slightly higher than 80 percent. Last year, he said, participation was right at 80 percent.

He said his goal is to get 90 percent student participation. He said what he's seen so far this year is that all the programs started at the high school, and for which data is available, have grown.

He said band and choir numbers are down slightly, but there is a new teacher this year.

He said the coaching staff at Tongue River High School is working on a shared mission, goals and values of the programs that they'd like to incorporate throughout all of the athletics and activities of the school.
