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!
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!!!!
PE SHOES- YES PLEASE!
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!!
Photo credits- Mrs. Cerreta’s First Grade class- they come in from lunch recess straight to PE and drop their shoes off before they sit down for their delicious lunch!
LC learners have been working on their jump rope skills! Jump rope is a great activity to increase cardiorespiratory endurance and muscular endurance!
It has been so great to see all the new and returning students to LC! Starting Monday we will be starting our specials. I have attached the schedule so students know when to bring their PE shoes.
The schedule has changed a bit this year. We have increase all specials time. Students will have Music and PE three times a week! YES 3 times a week! They students will also have Library and Computers two times a week, increasing from a single class period.
Third grade students will be attending specials in groups. GROUPS YOU WONDER??? I know it is not the traditional classroom teacher method, but with the size of the grade level and the time slots available, breaking the 4 classrooms into 3 equal groups worked wonderfully! Your child will be in Group A, Group B or Group C. On Wednesdays only 1st-2nd and 4th-5th will attend in Group A or Group B. The groups will be slightly larger but in PE the more the merrier!
Groups have been assigned and will be rolled out later this week. So for now check out the schedule, prepare your child to wear their sneakers on PE days. Everyone will be coming to me on Wednesday, but two 3rd grade groups! MORE CLARITY WILL COME when the groups are given to the teachers!
