Welcome to my Health Class website.  I will be posting Homework assignments, dates for upcoming projects, quizzes and/or tests, as well as any other pertinent information.  A few important points:
* Health is for one Marking Period, approximately 45 days in length. 
* It is a separate grade from Physical Education; they are not combined.
* Required supplies are listed under Homework page.
* Since this is a one marking period only class, it is helpful to know ahead of time if you know you are going to be out for an extended period of time.  I request that you give me one week's WRITTEN notice if you know will be out of class for more than two days.  This gives me ample time to gather work for you representative of what will be missed during your absence.  
The full Health Curriculum for each grade can be viewed by logging on to the SMS website, clicking on the DEPARTMENT TAB, then drop down to Curriculum from the tabs at the top of the page, and then clicking on Health K-8.  Your child will be given a letter with the pages you need to view for that year's Curriculum.  Please read this so that you know what your child will be learning in Health this year.  :)  Any parent wishing to opt his/her child out of the Family Life Education portion of the curriculum will need to sign the bottom of the letter that is sent home with your child.   **** All parents need to sign first part stating that Curriculum has been reviewed, but you only sign bottom part if you are opting your child OUT of the FLE portion of the curriculum.  If you choose to do this, we can schedule a meeting to discuss the information.  I will give you a packet and reference material.
