Health education in the elementary school includes such topics as: self-esteem, stress management, responsible decision making, personal responsibility and goal setting, interpersonal relationships, personal hygiene, systems of the body, substance abuse and prevention, and characteristics of communicable diseases.
Parents will be notified when the Human Growth and Development class is scheduled in fifth grade.

Parents may have their child excused from the Human Growth and Development classes by completing the Human Growth and Development Non-Participation form which is available through the principal.
