•  Welcome to Health Education!

    Dear Students & Parents,  

    This year we plan to provide you, the student, with a firm foundation of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors that promotes your physical, mental, emotional, and social development.  We are committed to provide a quality Health Education experience for all students with engaging lessons and authentic assessments that challenge students to think at a higher level. We are excited for you to learn and demonstrate personal, social, and interpersonal skills that will enable you to enhance your overall health and wellness.

    This year in health class we will also be addressing functional knowledge relevant to the Saxe Habits of Success scale.  This evaluative criteria has a particular focus on the development of a specific set of habits that will assist in your success of developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. These personal, social, and interpersonal skills will enable students to enhance their overall health and wellness. They are as follows:

    Preparedness
    Organization
    Materials
    Timeliness
    Assignment Completion   

    Active Learning
    Participation
    Questioning
    Focus
    Effort 
    Collaboration
    Awareness of others
    Fairness
    Group work
    Respect 
    Self-management
    Behavior
    Responsibility
    Problem Solving
    Independence
    Self-reflection  
    During your health education class we will be utilizing a variety of assessment strategies that are designed to motivate, evaluate, and measure student achievement.  In addition, these assessments will assist in the learning process. Within our curriculum there are several authentic assessment strategies that utilize near-to-real life situations to evaluate whether students can demonstrate what they have learned into positive behavior and action.
     
    We look forward to a great school year!
