Welcome to Health class!

We are looking forward to learning many valuable concepts about family, community, and ourselves as it relates to living a healthy lifestyle. We will be using our book in class as a resource tool to help guide us through some topics. As we explore healthy lifestyles, a variety of learning opportunities outside of the book will be available to us. Some of these will be guest speakers, computer application, gathering of data to draw conclusions, small group activities, and creating presentations.

You should find that the majority of our standards are lifetime skills that many of you are currently practicing in your everyday actions. An awareness of practices outside of your “normal” routine may find you wanting to make some changes.

The grades will be based on total points accumulated through the class. It will be a mixture of presentations, reporting data, assessments of concepts, class activities, and individually assigned work.

We look forward to our learning opportunities in Health to finish the year!
