Physical Education

Welcome to the Lawrence P.E. page!  The P.E. staff consists of three teachers:  Ms. Uyenoyama, Mr. Mastroianni, and Ms. Ellis.  We work closely together to deliver a fun, active and safe physical education learning environment for all K-8 students!  Our goals align with the Town of Brookline, the State of Massachusetts and the National Physical Education Learning Standards.  Overall, we use multiple teaching strategies to deliver activities that are age and developmentally appropriate with a focus starting from spatial awareness and locomotion to fundamental skills to specialized skills, while simultaneously addressing physical fitness and social skills.
