Sit-up Test and Fundraiser

      This week we will be doing our next fitness test which is our sit-up test.  We are going to pair the sit-up test with a fundraiser for a student in our school named Olive.  Olive has a rear disease called Rett Syndrome which effects her muscles rendering her from walking and talking.  Since October is Rett Syndrome Awareness month we thought we could raise some money using our muscles in P.E. class to help out a great cause.  If you would like to donate their will be a paper going home with every NSE student after their P.E. class with the number of sit-ups they completed on it.  This is not a mandatory fundraiser by any means but if you would like to help out a fellow NSE Spartan feel free to donate.  You can make a flat donation or you can even donate a set amount for each sit-up completed by your student.  Checks can be handed in with this form made out to RettSyndrome.Org or you can donate online at  RettSyndrome.Org is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit group.  Of every dollar donated 91 cents goes directly to research and family empowerment programs.  Thank you for all the continued support, with spartan pride NSE P.E.

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)
