To encourage equal focus on academics and athletics, MES offers the BEAR program in collaboration with Wemindji Minor Sports.
All minor sports athletes are expected to meet BEAR (Behaviour, Effort, Attendance and Respect) expectations each and every day, both in sport and in school in order to remain eligible for league and tournament play.
