New Health Lessons

Dear Margate Parents and Guardians,

We have purchased a new Health series and are designing our local curriculum plans. Our staff has been developing the curriculum over the summer, but with the change in Health teachers this year at Tighe we are still refining what will be taught at each grade. Our new teacher, Mrs. Bean, has been working with our administration this month to design a plan for the year. Miss Carey and Mrs. Bergman, the Health teachers at Ross, were part of the committee who selected the new series.

The curriculum overview is attached below, as well as plans for the anticipated lessons in each grade, although slight alterations may occur during the year as with any new curriculum.

We wanted to share our anticipated lessons with you early so you can review the content covered in each grade level. Our district strives to cover mandatory standards while balancing the learning needs of our students and wishes of our families. We plan to deliver a Health curriculum that emphasizes respect for all, while supporting the social, emotional, and physical development of the children in grades K-8.
