LMS Wellness Fair

Lincoln Middle School 8th Grade Health and Physical Education classes hosted a Wellness Fair on Dec. 13th and 14th for students, staff and parents to learn about health topics, motor skill topics, fitness topics and other wellness topics that reflect student learning targets.

The idea was planned by John Hardy, health educator and Denise Preisser, physical educator through a Portland Education Foundation grant to encourage student engagement in their learning and this event also supports the Portland Promise - Goal 3 to promote mental and physical wellness, build character, and stimulate creative and artistic expression.  The gym came alive will real life learning experiences for participants.

          Maine Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Leadership Day

Members of Lincoln Middle School's student wellness team attended the Maine Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Leadership Day on Saturday, June 2nd at the University of New England Harold Alfond Forum in Biddeford.  The student members attending were Nicole Quang, Isabella Puelo, and Roxie Van Oosterum.  Teacher advisors attending were Denise Preisser and Christel Driscoll.  Student teams shared highlights of wellness events held at their schools and then led the group in a variety of physical activities.   After a fabulous lunch, students met in groups to brainstorm ideas to help make their wellness teams stronger and develop plans on how to get their peers involved more next year.  

Jenni Tilton-Flood attended and spoke on behalf of the Maine dairy farmers fund which helps fund Fuel Up to Play 60 events like this one.  Clare Egan, a member of the US Biathlon Team shared her story via video on success and perseverance to help any student meet their personal goals.  Another special guest, Jacob Hollister #47, from the New England Patriots spoke to the students about leadership and then led a station of throwing and catching footballs to student leaders. The conference promoted the premise that "Healthy Students are Better Students" and how can schools help make this happen.
