25 Mile Tracker T-Shirt Award

Arrington'sA huge thank you to the Caldwell High School Booster Club for helping create and for printing the LC Tracker Mileage Club T-shirts!  Thank you to Mrs. Peebles for purchasing the shirts for our 25 mile award winners! Students are able to wear their LC Tracker shirt instead of the collared dress code shirt any day of the week!  🙂School



LC LEARNERS have been earning tracker tokens for walking and jogging the track.  Eight laps are equivalent to one mile on the track. When the first mile has been accomplished the student earns a foot tracker for their LC necklace.  Each 5 mile increment after that first mile earn a number token!  At 25 miles a t-shirt mileage tracker token is earned, a shoes to color for the bulletin board and the 25 mile tracker!  A special LC TRACKER T-SHIRT will be added to the awards when our first student reaches the 25 mile mark.

We also have a grade level competition this semester.  The top mileage class at each grade level will earn the Penguin Tracker Token for January and the GOLDEN SHOE TROPHY. The trophy will remain in their class for the month of February when the mileage will be calculated again.

A quarterly award of a GIANT FOOT will be awarded to the class in the school with the most mileage for the 3rd quarter!  The contest will restart for the 4th quarter!

GUEST TRACKER TOKENS!  If you come and walk with your LC LEARNER during lunch you earn double miles for the class total!  The student will earn a guest walker token to put on their necklace! We ask that you sign in at the office and get a visitor sticker any time you come to walk!

We are well over 1,000 miles as a school starting into the second semester!  WAY TO GO LC TRACKERS!



Mayor’s School Walking Challenge

For the month of October Lewis & Clark will be participating in the Mayor’s School Walking Challenge. The purpose of the walking challenge if to raise awareness of the steps cities and schools can take to increase physical activity and health in their communities.  The challenge also is focusing on celebrating and encouraging year-round walking programs in elementary schools.

  • Miles must be walked by students during school hours and on school property.
  • 30 minutes of walking per day will be counted for this challenge
  • THE school with the highest average miles walked per student will win funds for physical activity.

Let’s get our laces tied and get out and walk on every recess to log as many miles and minutes as we can!  GO LC!!!!20120827-125850.jpg

Responsible LC LEARNERS


LC learners have been demonstrating ownership and responsibility on their PE days! At LC we have our learner and behavior matrix.  Ownership and responsibility are the two traits I would love to recognize our learners for doing such a superior job on!
I wanted to recognize all the LC learners who have been wearing their boots outside, yet coming prepared for each PE lesson! In the winter conditions we are currently having, ice, snow big pools of water- boots are a must in keeping the feet dry and comfortable in the long school day.  We have very few students throughout the school, K-5, who are forgetting to bring their PE shoes!  Please continue to support your child in remembering their gym shoes!  Numerous kiddos have opted to leave their shoes in their classroom to ensure they have their shoes on the appropriate days!
I highly encourage boots be worn this time of year, but of course want them to be able to gain the benefits of participating in their PE lessons!!
THANKS LC learners for being responsible and taking ownership over your learning!!

Jump Rope at LC!

LC learners have been working on their jump rope skills!  Jump rope is a great activity to increase cardiorespiratory endurance and muscular endurance!

Learners at all levels were working on jump rope working through a skill series at their own level.  Some students were introduced to jump rope for their very first time and some we taking on advanced footwork skills.  All learners spent time each class period working on jumps in  a row without a miss. Every miss they started over at zero and worked to be their personal best.  Students demonstrated persistence while working to achieve each new personal best!  Jumps clubs were posted on the wall to encourage each jumper to continue to work towards a goal.  All learners engaged fully in each lesson, sharing out their accomplishments.  Jumpers also supported their fellow classmates encouraging them and sharing their knowledge to assist in helping them develop challenging skills or overcoming obstacles.Thursday and Friday students were able to record their name on the jump club that corresponded with their personal best.  At the conclusion of class we then took a picture in front of the jump club they signed.  The picture is a clear visual representation of the fractions of learners who met the different jump club levels. We called it a living bar graph!  The jump club posters will hang in the hall through Christmas Vacation.  The students at Lewis and Clark do a superior job on their jump rope technique and I am always thrilled at what they are able to accomplish over the course of a two week period.  We will continue throughout the year to pull jump ropes out and use them in our fitness units.
