• Physical Education


    Welcome back!  We are excited to start a new school year.  This year, the Lincoln Physical Education teachers will be Rob Hutchison and Chris Roche.  If at any point during the year, you have any questions, feel free to stop by the gym or email us at robert_hutchison@psbma.org or chris_roche@psbma.org.
     
    We do have a few requests as we begin a new year.  First, we would like to ask that you send your child to school with proper clothes for physical movement.  Most importantly, all students need sneakers to participate in physical education.  Also, please send your child to school with something that he/she can move around in comfortably.  This may be shorts, sweat pants, tee-shirts, or anything that he/she can move around in comfortably.  Our second request is if your child can not participate in class do to any reason please send a note in with your child.  If it is going to be a prolonged absence, please provide a doctor’s note.  
    Mr. Robert Hutchinson

  • Physical Education for Grades 3-5

     
    With students in third to fifth grade, we begin to expand upon the movement concepts that they learned in K-2.  We start to begin to teach skills used within game-play.  For example, our basketball unit focuses on dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending as opposed to playing the actual sport. Classes will take place in either our gym, outside space, or multi-purpose room.  Below is a brief outline of the upcoming school year. 
     
    September – Cooperative Games, Cross Country, Flag Football.

  • Physical Education for Grades 6-8

     
    With students in sixth to eighth grade, we begin to expand upon the sport skill concepts that they learned in 3-5.  We start to get into game-play.  However, we always maximize the chance for students to practice skills.  We keep teams small to ensure that every student gets a chance to be a part of the game.  Throughout the year we mix in invasion games, problem solving games, and cooperative games.  Classes will take place in either our gym, outside space, or multi-purpose room.  Below is a brief outline of the upcoming school year. 
     
    September – Cooperative Games, Cross Country, Flag Football.
