Welcome Back!

Dear students and parents/guardians,

      I want to welcome everyone back and I hope both my students and their parents/guardians had a great summer.  This years physical education class will consist of many fun and exciting activities/games that will promote teamwork, leadership, cooperation, physical fitness, and skills needed to develop the students into being self sufficient lifelong learners.  I plan to incorporate games such as basketball, kickball, and floor hockey among other things to promote the skills listed above.  

      Some information that parents/guardians might be interested in are as followed-

1. Students should be dressed for class in a solid color tee shirt or polo shirt or any Spartan shirt.  Shorts are allowed to be worn for P.E. class until daylight savings time.  After that the students will need to wear athletic pants such as sweatpants or jogging pants or khakis.  Sneakers are also a must for Physical Education.

2. Students should show either a doctors note or note from their parents/guardian pertaining to the physical health of the student (ie: if the student can't participate in P.E. due to a broken arm, sickness, injury, ect.)

3. Many different avenues will be used for grading the students such as skill tests, pencil and paper assessments, participation, and sportsmanship.  

      I will use this means of communication to post every unit of instruction I will be teaching and also for listing homework if necessary.  I look forward to a exciting productive year at North Schuylkill Elementary School.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to send me an email at ( and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you,
Mr. Hinkel (NSE Health and Physical Education Teacher)
