Health

Our middle school health education program focuses on physical, mental, and social health. The sixth grade curriculum consists of units on balanced healthy lifestyles, tobacco, nutrition, and fitness components. The seventh grade curriculum consists of units on personal health, nutrition and nutrients, convenience foods, consumer responsibility, and medicine / drug use. Continuing in eighth grade health, students complete an alcohol unit which focuses on use, misuse, and abuse of alcohol along with refusal skills and consequences. Eighth grade students then begin eight in depth mini-units of the eight body systems with each focusing on parts, functions, problems and care of each system.
