Health class should be an enjoyable experience for all students. Why? It's your life!! With that in mind, we will learn about a variety of health topics that will involve using mutli-media (PowerPoint, videos, web access, imovie, etc), question/answer, discussion, presentations, and the good old textbook.
Any assignment turned in late will result in a loss of 5 points per day. Assignments will not be accepted after 5 school days. All assignments later than the aforementioned 5 days will result in a zero. Simply put - do your work!
Missing quizzes, unit tests, and other assignment dates:
Students who miss quizzes, unit tests, or other assignment due dates MUST see me ASAP. Please do not wait until the next health class--it could be a week before a student sees me again. These items may or may not be made up during class time. (Done on an individual basis--depends on what is being covered in class that day.) If a student cannot make up the work during class--AREA or study halls will be used. All legal absences--are excused. Passes to the nurse (except emergency reasons) without my permission on a due date--results in a zero.
Grades are calculated by a total number of points for the semester. Each assignment will receive a point total. We can have over 800 points for a given semester. Grades are given twice a year--January and June.
