WHAT IS HEALTH AND WHAT WILL STUDENTS LEARN


Health is about life and the unique experiences we have with it each day.  In health class the students will be taught the skills and knowledge needed to create a positive and healthy life. Students will gain knowledge on the dimensions of their health and learn how life can affect them. They will learn skills that will help keep each dimension in a healthy state and create goals to successfully prevent health problems. Once the knowledge and skills are gained, the true challenge will begin by applying the material from class into their day to day life. If the student is willing to take on this challenge, the benefits will last a lifetime.
