B-L Elementary School kicks off “Educate My Sole” Initiative
Batesburg-Leesville, SC - B-L Elementary School is proud to announce that students this year will be participating in the “Educate My Sole” initiative that was co-founded by Dawn Staley, head coach of the USC Women’s Basketball program.
“Educate My Sole” is a contest for students in third through fifth grades that places emphasis on attendance, academics, behavior and physical fitness. At the end of each nine weeks, a rubric that is based on these core areas will be used to determine which class in each grade level is that period’s winner. Then, each student in the winning classroom in the third, fourth and fifth grades will receive a brand new pair of sneakers! If there is a tie between classes, students in both classrooms will get a new pair of shoes.
Stay tuned for the announcement of BLES’s first set of winners at the end of October.
