• Senior High Health class will be a continuation of the work we started in middle school.  We will delve deeper into the three areas of health (physical, mental/emotional and social).  The skills that we will try to develop include; self-management, relationship management, stress management, communication, planning and goal setting, decision making and advocacy.  We will review and expand on functional knowledge in the following areas; physical activity/nutrition, HIV/AIDS, sexual risk, family life/sexual health, tobacco, alcohol/other drugs, unintentional injuries, violence prevention and other required health areas. 


    Class Rules:

    1.     The students will be expected to bring their computer, and a pen/pencil to class everyday.

    2.     Each student is expected to be in his/her seat when the bell rings.  Attendance will be taken at this time.  Any student who is not in the classroom when the bell rings will be written up for being tardy.

    3.     Homework is to be done on time, and turned in electronically using MS Teams.

    4.     Each student is expected to respect others in the class at all times.

    5.     The room is to be kept neat and orderly at all times.

    6.     Each student is expected to follow all district's rules and policies established by the Board of Education.

    7.     If a student does not follow the district and classroom rules and expectations, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.


    Grading policy:

    1.     Tests and projects = 4X  scored out of 100 points

    2.     Quizzes = 2X  scored out of 100 points

    3.     Homework = 1X  scored out of 10 points

    4.  If a student has a 92% quarter average each individual quarter, then they may choose not to take the final exam.  If they choose to take the final exam I will only count the exam if it will raise their final average.

    Grading is done on a total points format.


    ***If an assignment is due for a grade and it is not done by the due date,  (whether distance learning for the day or not) a score of “0” will be recorded for that assignment.  The only exception is a legal excuse.  The student will have ONE school day to make-up any legally missed assignments.  After that time a score of “0” will be recorded. 


    If a student is caught cheating in class or turning in work that is not his/hers then all parties involved will receive a score of “0” for that assignment.


    Tests, Quizzes, Homework, and projects:

    1.     Tests will be given at the end of each chapter or unit.

    2.     Quizzes will be given at any time without notice

    3.     Class projects and homework as assigned.
