Lincoln School of Science & Technology Health and Wellness
Running Squad-Students (all grade levels) can walk, run, skip, hop, jump on Tuesday mornings and Tuesday lunch recesses. Once a student runs 5 laps they earn a toe token. There are other select days that we participate in running squad. These days normally occur March-May in preparation for our participation in the Blossom 5k. The run is usually the first weekend in May in conjunction with the Canon City Music and Blossom Festival.
Thrilling Thursdays-All 3rd-5th graders are invited to participating in monthly wellness activities. Some activities will take place at Lincoln, while other will be held out in the community. See Mrs. Patrick for a schedule of the activities we have planned as well as for permission slips. A permission slip is required one week before each event and is available the first day of the month. Occasionally all grade levels and families are invited to join us for Thrilling Thursdays.
WHAT is 5210? Do you know? In the past Lincoln's Health & Wellness team has focused on 5210. The 5 means try to have 5 fruits or vegetables a day. The 2 is 2 hours or less of screen time a day. The 1 is one hour or more of activity a day. The 0 is zero sugary snacks/drinks.
Healthy Activities-Stay tuned for our healthy activities throughout the school year.
Heathy Snacks-Students are taught in classrooms about good nutrition, proper
portions and the value of healthy food choices. In support of these efforts, The Canon City School District’s School Nutrition and Activity Council (SNAC) is providing ideas for healthy snacks and beverages for parents, staff and students for classroom snacks and/or celebrations. Serving healthy snacks to children will help support our commitment of making wellness part of the total learning environment as well as provide good nutrition and support lifelong healthy eating habits.
