Curriculum Overview



Wellness as the Overarching Theme

Schools play a critical role in improving the healthy lifestyle behaviors of children and adolescents. Schools can create environments that are supportive of this by implementing policies and practice that provide students with learning opportunities to practice these behaviors, for example regular physical education and health education. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Students will gain personal and academic achievement through practice of skills needed to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Students will access, evaluate, and use information from various sources to achieve overall wellness, and will comprehend concepts related to wellness to implement realistic plans for a lifetime of optimal well- being.  Students will make plans and take actions that lead to healthy and balanced living for themselves and the world around them in an environment that is safe physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually.  (Healthy and Balanced Living Curriculum Framework)
