Greetings! I am Miss Lensch and have been teaching PE in OPS for twelve years. I have been at Standing Bear for nearly seven years now. I love kids and teaching them games! “Exercise in Disguise” is a great way to get young people active in this digital, sedentary world we live in! I try to teach a variety of fun games, skills and activities in my classes. Students also learn important life lessons such as responsibility, cooperation with others, community involvement, teamwork and sportsmanship. I have a “shoe race” with my 3rd and 4th graders, awarding the classes who most consistently bring appropriate gym shoes. At Standing Bear, students have an opportunity to participate in the “Kids Heart Challenge”, a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. I award “PE Student of the Month” certificates to 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders who demonstrate some of the above qualities in PE class. You are welcome to come and observe my class any time! I hope your child’s PE “take-aways” will be healthy habits, fun new games, new friends and positive life-long memories!
