Health Education
  • Health Education provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain health and wellness throughout their lifetime.  The intent of a comprehensive health education program is to motivate students to improve their health, prevent disease, and avoid or reduce health related risk behaviors. All teaching and learning is focused on student achievement of learning standards (Next Generation Sunshine State Standards). Health literate youth have the ability to maintain and enhance personal health and fitness, create safe environments, and manage personal and community resources. Health education provides real life learning experiences with personal applications of scientifically research-based health knowledge and skills in relevant situations. Health Education creates opportunities and experiences that engage and challenge young people to assess, explore, and question their health, while personalizing, adapting and evaluating their learning.
  • Harvest of the Month
     
    Florida’s Farm to School Harvest of the Month (HOM) is an educational program provided by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that highlights a different Florida-grown product each month. HOM cultivates a healthy food and farm connection by increasing students' exposure to seasonal foods while also supporting local farmers. At the beginning of each month, a different Florida fruit or vegetable will be highlighted that is in season during that month. Check back monthly for a new harvest food item!
