The goal of activities is to provide a supportive environment for students to enhance academic pursuits and to achieve goals pertaining to increased success, social development, physical development, cooperation, positive self-concept, and personal worth and integrity. Further, activities should enable students to explore interest areas, develop new interests, and apply new knowledge through participation in individual and group activities. The intent of activities is for students to gain a sense of pride in accomplishments, to maintain the proper perspective of losing and winning, and to do one’s best at whatever that level may be.

Intramural and extramural athletics are offered for middle school students in Lincoln Public Schools. A major emphasis of seventh and eighth grade intramural sports is to introduce athletes to the fundamentals of sports and promote the enjoyment of sports. Learning to play the sport competitively and preparing middle school for high school sports are also a major goals of intramurals. This means there is no guarantee of equal playing time in “A”, “B”, or “C” level intramurals.
Sixth graders may participate in intramural practice as long as there is adequate space and availability. Cross country and wrestling are the two sports that best accommodate sixth grade participants. Please remember that sixth grade participants are not allowed to compete in Saturday morning contests until they are seventh and/or eighth graders. This is Department of Education Rule 10.
