Elementary School Health Curriculum

Kindergarten:

Health is a condition of well-being that is required for the development of each individual and for society as a whole. Health instruction at the elementary level builds a strong foundation to promote the health and well-being of our students. The health education program works in partnership with the home, school, and the community. To support this partnership with the parents, a list of videos that may be used in mailed home at the beginning of the school year, and, prior to instruction, a parent notification letter is sent home with students.

The elementary program provides accurate, age-appropriate information and builds upon prior learning.

The curriculum consists of six strands and is taught by the classroom teacher. The six strands taught in Kindergarten are:

  • Physical activity & nutrition
  • Diseases
  • Tobacco, alcohol & other drugs
  • Family life and maturity
  • Violence prevention
  • Unintentional injury prevention
