Welcome to Health! 
I am blessed to be teaching your child this year. We are going to be diving right into our first unit, alcohol, tobacco and drugs. So this is where you come in. We want you to help us start the conversation about your child's health. First and foremost you are the first point of contact for you child, however we encourage students to talk and discuss topics in class with their peers in a comfortable and safe classroom environment. 
 
Below are the Units we will be covering this semester: 
 
Unit 1 - Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco
Unit 2 - mental health, self esteem and bullying
Unit 3 - Physical Fitness/Weight Management/Eating Disorders
Unit 4 - Preventing Infectious/Lifestyle Diseases

 ** Please note that your student will receive two parent letters to have signed and brought back in order to attend the Reproductive Unit and the CPR Certification Unit.
 
I have attached the online copy of our class textbook. Please feel free to take a look and follow along with us this semester.
