Spring Semester Health Class Requests for 7th and 8th Graders

7th and 8th Health class is designed to promote awareness of social-emotional and physical developmental needs so students can make educated health decisions. Areas of study will include nutrition, exercise, sleep, social media, screen time, alcohol, vaping, and other drugs, suicide awareness, and goal setting. The last 7 weeks will follow the Positive Prevention Plus sexual health curriculum.

The first day of Health class will be January 11th. The class is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:25am. Health class is not subject to class limit restrictions. Contact your PLT to request the class.

Students can choose this course or the independent study course (which will be offered later in the spring) to complete the state requirement.
