Health 9

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

Purpose...

The purpose of Health 9 is to provide students with the basic framework of knowledge to develop a healthy lifestyle.  Students will obtain, interpret and understand basic health information and services and be competent to use such information and services in ways that promote health.   This course will provide an understanding of the responsibility we have for our own health.  Students will have the opportunity to incorporate decision making skills and healthy choices throughout the following units: physical fitness and nutrition, mental and emotional health, social health, drugs, adolescent decision making, diseases and disorders.  A combination of lectures, class discussions, computer labs, Power Point presentations, guest speakers, videos and student activities will show students that decisions they make now can promote health and enjoyment in the future. 

Where and When???

We will meet in this room every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Exceptions will be given by the teacher so please pay attention to those dates.
