Each week during health the student will be asked to respond to 2 questions of the day which will be posted to the students email.
Tech Ed
Tech Ed will be taught the second half of the school year.
Tech Ed units will cover the following:

This course is a very hands on type of class with lots of inquiry based learning. 
PE is all year long 2-3 times a week, we will be exploring many different types of games from team sports to individual sports.  Students are required to change for pe and should be prepared to go outside as we love the seasons in VT.  Some of the units we will cover are:
