To encourage students to assess their attitudes and behavioral patterns towards health, and to help them understand the impact their choices will have on their well-being both today and in the future. To enhance student learning using “Cornell” notes, time management, organization, and student responsibility.
The purpose of this course is to teach students how to adjust and adapt to the challenges of adolescence. Also, to provide more opportunities for students to be organized, challenged, think critically, succeed, and make connections using strategies. In addition, this course helps students recognize and avoid health risks. Instruction in anatomy, reproduction, STD’s/HIV/AIDS will be provided to students. Should you have questions or should you wish to preview personally any of the materials, please contact your child’s health teacher. As required by state law, parents have the option to exclude their child from human sexuality and HIV/AIDS lessons. If this is your wish, you must notify the principal in writing. It is our hope that parents and guardians will take this as an opportunity to discuss these topics with their children. Parents are the first to provide guidance to their child in these areas. We strive to thoughtfully and carefully enhance this guidance. THIS COURSE MEETS STATE REQUIREMENTS
