Health Education Healthsmart K-5
The HealthSmart program is designed for children in grades K-12 and responds to the challenges facing our children today. Our goal in utilizing this curriculum in grades K-5 is to lay the foundation early on for making healthy choices in early childhood, adolescence and throughout our students’ adult lives. We want to foster healthy attitudes and behavior, and even more importantly, prepare children to learn and succeed in school by creating healthy minds, confidence and support for one another. In addition to teaching concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention, HealthSmart lessons and learning activities provide opportunities to apply skills. Students are taught about feelings, self-respect, and how to access healthful resources beginning in kindergarten.
