Health & Wellness Class

Health & Wellness Syllabus

 

 Dear Students and Parents, 

Health & Wellness is a course based on Indiana’s Academic Standards for Health & Wellness.  It provides the basis to help students adopt and maintain healthy lifelong behaviors.  Health & Wellness Education contributes directly to a student’s ability to successfully practice behaviors that protect and promote health and avoid or reduce health risks. One semester is required to earn a high school diploma.

Basic daily requirements are necessary for success.  Students should be prepared with supplies including writing utensils and a Health & Wellness folder that includes worksheets, paper, and assignments.  Students are expected to follow procedures, directions, and to be engaged.  Student IDs must be visible.  Food and drinks are not allowed.  Personal electronic devices should be set to OFF and should not be visible, and ear buds should not be in ears.

Absent students should check Power School to monitor their missing assignments.  All late work must be turned in within one week of the original due date.  Students who are absent for a speaker program will receive a zero grade for unexcused absences.  Students who are absent for any reason (including ISS or OSS) should access the Health & Wellness Website to view lessons that were missed at the following url:

Grades are based on a combination of tests (25%), pop quizzes (25%), and assignments (50%).  Homework, tests, and class work may be turned in late.

 Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that may arise at 393-5500.  I look forward to teaching your child, and I hope that they are proud of their accomplishments this semester.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Catherine Masters
