• 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.
