Daily Dress - Middle School

Middle School students are required to change into their physical education uniforms daily. If the students are unable to bring their uniform on a particular day, please make sure they bring and appropriate alternative outfit, along with a parental note explaining the reason.

Health Units - Middle School

Health:

The health units will take place once a week throughout the school year.  Starting in September and running through December the students will participate in the program Second Step Curriculum (www.cfchildren.org/programs/ssp/ms/).  There are 13 lessons for the 7th and 8th grade and 15 lessons for the 6th grade. 

 

The topics for discussion are:

  • Empathy and Communication
  • Bullying Prevention
  • Emotion Management
  • Substance Abuse Prevention
  • Problem-solving (6th only)
  • Goal Setting (8th grade only)

Mrs. Peters will be presenting to the 6th grade, Mrs. Dave will be presenting to the 7th and 8th grades.            

 

Each month we will discuss a new topic with our students beginning in January (once the topics above have concluded).  We will utilize health handouts/worksheets, magazines, current events and videos along with classroom discussions.  Students will be assigned a variety of projects and/or assignments to enhance their learning.  Some topics will require homework as well as a final quiz or test to assess their understanding.
