Hello families of Timber Ridge Elementary School students! I am Mrs. Lena Baunsgard and I will be your PE teacher this year! I LOVE PE AND I’M SO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS LIFESTYLE WITH YOU! My husband, Don, and I have a blended family with 3 children still at home. We love to be active! Over the school year your students and I will share our favorite activities with one another through a “Share Board” in the gym! I am looking forward to learning all the fun ways your children move!
At Timber Ridge we will start the year learning about safety in our surroundings through playground games and spatial awareness. Over the course of the year we will be reaching all of the new state PE standards through movement, sport, games, communication, and assessment. If you have any questions pertaining to the PE classes, please feel free to email me!
For success in the classroom, I ask that students wear appropriate shoes and clothes for physical activity. If they are not wearing shoes that are safe for running, jumping, kicking, and climbing, indoors and out, they may not be able to safely participate in our activities. I DO NOT WANT THAT! I want your children to participate fully every day, but in order for them to be safe, we need to work together to ensure they are prepared. Also, please no dresses, especially with the climbing wall, I feel it is inappropriate and dangerous! Thank you in advance for your help! (If this is a challenge for your family, please contact me privately.)
