Fourth Grade students enjoyed fueling up their bodies with an apple during our school wide National Crunch Day celebration today. Soccer skills were a perfect match for snacking and playing!
Welcome back to another awesome year in Physical Education! I am so excited to see our Grizzly movers and shakers working towards a healthy mind and body. Please remember to wear tennis shoes each time your child has PE for Encore. Students have PE on back to back days. If you would like to donate items, we could use the following:
- Beaded Necklaces (Treasured “bling” for fitness activities)
- New Plungers (Yes, NEW plungers only. Used for pulling scooters to develop upper body strength.)
- KidzBop Music
Family Life Education will be starting here at LCES on Thursday, March 23 and will last until Thursday, March 30. All students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will be automatically enrolled in the program. If you wish to opt your student out of FLE, please use the documents attached to do so. The standards that will be covered in FLE for each grade level are also located on these forms.
Now that January is winding down, we can get jumping with our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser and event! Jump Rope for Heart is a school and nationwide initiative that helps to support and raise funds for the American Heart Association. It teaches our kids how to care for our bodies and hearts, disease prevention and awareness as well as how to serve others who have a special heart or need.

NEW ON THE BLOG! Under the tab marked “Family Activity Calendars,” you will find calendars that include physical activities that your family can do together every day. These activities involve no equipment and are a good way to practice healthy behaviors together! The calendars are in English and in Spanish. Enjoy being healthy together!
It is recommended that students and adults get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day. Lewis and Clark has some excellent opportunities for our students to get moving after school with friends!

Hello Lewis and Clark! I am very excited to be joining the LCES family and I am looking forward to a great year with you in Physical Education! Don’t forget to check your school schedule for specials to see which day you have PE. We are working on a 6 day rotation so please be sure on PE days to send your student in clothes that allow for them to be active and of course, wear tennis shoes. Go Grizzlies!
