Health

Seventh graders will attend class in our Healthy Kitchen. Every student will gain the experience of making their own soil that they will use to grow vegetable plants in, from seed. They will learn to care for growing plants, harvest vegetables, and eventually donate harvested vegetables to the school cafeteria where they will be used in school lunches. Goal setting, nutrition, tobacco and other illegal drug use, stress management and fire safety are the other major areas of study throughout this twelve week course.

 

The primary goal of eighth grade health education is to provide current health information to students in order to increase their awareness of issues that affect their daily lives and to use that information to make healthy decisions.
