Summer School - Physical Education
Because many students are three-season athletes, or are enrolled in Dance PE, finding time in a student's schedule to complete the requirements for Health and CPR prove difficult. These one-week courses fulfill graduation requirements and allow students some flexibility in scheduling.
Students will learn the skills necessary to assist in the prevention of injury and care for those in and around water. Students will learn safety and rescue technique as well as response to critical care. Including the skill set for CPR/AED(rescue breathing, first aid for choking, and CPR with AED). Students must be 15 years of age and able to swim 300 continuous laps, tread water for 2 minutes and complete a timed 10 lb brick retrieval assessment. Students will fulfill their CPR/AED graduation requirement while earning a certificate from the American Red Cross as a Lifeguard.
This course runs for one week from June 22 - June 26, 2020.
Mr. Thatcher Woodley will teach this course.
The Summer Health Education curriculum provides an intensive interactive forum to understand health issues. As students acquire knowledge and obtain skills, they gain the self-confidence and sense of responsibility necessary for making decisions that affect their quality of life. Health Education includes lectures, research, role-playing, guest speakers, written and oral reports, movies, hands on activities and interactive group discussions. The skills students learn form a basis for exploration in areas such as health and wellness, behavior change, substance use and misuse, sexuality and sexual health, relationships, stress, sleep, mental health, nutrition, and disease risk reduction.
Rising 9th and 10th grade students and current 11th graders who have not had the opportunity to take health may enroll in this course.
This course runs for one week from Monday, June 22 - Friday, June 26, 2020.
Ms. Amy Mojica will teach this course.
