Fifth Quarter students at Carson School are all wearing new athletic shoes thanks to Clever Crazes for Kids. The students were the winners of the Clever Crazes Step It Up Challenge, which called for all students and teachers in Fifth Quarter schools to wear pedometers and track their steps during the four-week program. Carson's students and teachers took the most steps and claimed their prize (the teachers got gift cards).
In addition to the Step It Up Challenge, the Carson students won the Spark Your Brain Challenge. This contest called for Fifth Quarter schools to begin each day with a 30-minute exercise program for all the students prior to their first class. The students were given math tests, and the school with the highest scores won. The contest was designed to show the benefits of physical activity on brain power. Congratulations to Carson.
