“Nothing is more important than your health.”

“Some decisions last a lifetime.”

“Each day is a celebration.”

“Make today great.”


These are thoughts I choose to live by…..and do so in my teaching of Health Education, now for 37 years.  Everything we learn in school is important.  Understanding health, the human body and choices we make even more so.


I encourage you each and every day to ask yourself:  “What do I already know about this?  What is one new thing that I learned today? What do I still need/want to know?”  A questioning learner is always a good thing.  This is how we continue to grow, as well as help others to learn.  The classroom is a special environment - one where each and everyone of us needs to feel safe to ask questions, to learn, to feel comfortable and welcomed.



Whether this is your first year in Health class, second, third or fourth, please know that your success is my concern.  I will help you in your own style of learning, promise to always give you my very best teaching,  and observe and evaluate your success fairly and timely with honest feedback


Your job, is to come prepared to learn each day; to be kind, respectful and helpful; and to have fun!

Grading:

Health Education is graded on the Allied Arts Scale:

PD = Proficient with Distinction (possible 90 - 100)

P = Proficient (possible 70 - 89)

PP = Partially Proficient (possible 60 - 69)

SBP = Substantially Below Proficient (below 60)

Inc = Incomplete (not enough to evaluate either due to time out of class, incomplete work, or SBP grades)


Your Success in Health will have two tiers:

Tier 1:  Preparedness, participation and classroom behavior (These will be indicated in the “comment” section in JupiterEd, Progress Reports and Report Cards)

Tier 2:  Success on classwork, group work/activities, observational evaluations and written assessments (These will be indicated numerically as completed in the grade section of JupiterEd, Progress Reports and Report Cards)


IN OTHER WORDS:  “I BELIEVE DOING YOUR BEST EACH DAY AND BEING A GOOD CITIZEN IN CLASS EACH AND EVERYDAY MOST IMPORTANT!”  :)  


THERE IS NO HOMEWORK IN HEALTH CLASS ON A WEEKLY BASIS.  (There are a few items that need to be brought/shared at home along the way.  Yes, even the Baby Think It Over Project has changed this year.  You are not required to bring home a “Baby.”  This work will be done as a group in class this year in Health 8.  More on that later…..)

 


Work Expectations:

I will provide you with a pocket folder for Health class that you are to bring to class with you each and every day.  Please have a pen or pencil and a highlighter to use in class as well. (Only Grade 5 Health students will leave these in the Health classroom for use each day.  Other grades will need to bring to class on a daily basis).  You are responsible for missed work - check the “Have you been Absent” file in class when you are out of school.





MY GOAL FOR YOU EACH DAY:


LEARN ONE NEW THING AND TEACH IT TO SOMEONE ELSE! (IT COULD BE A FACT, A STATISTIC, A VOCABULARY WORD, A CURRENT HEALTH TO SHARE, OR A FUN STORY!)
