Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.  This year we will explore Health in which we will learn about Nutrition, Physical Activity, Growth and Development, Injury Prevention, Safety, Alcohol, tobacco, other Drugs, Mental, Emotional, Social Health, Personal and Community Health.  In this class we will learn how to access vital information regarding a healthy lifestyle, effective communication skills, learning to make informative decisions and setting goal.  My goal is that all students in this class will come away understanding not only Health but to understand what is a healthy lifestyle and to make informative decisions.
 
We will also be exploring Health Careers with the PAHS students.  In this class we will look at various careers in the Health care industry, analyse the education requirements, college, funding, also looking at community health which will include research of diseases and putting together a pamphlet at the end of the course.  
 
It will be an exciting year and I look forward to this journey with your student.
