Health classes are taught by our school nurse or counselor, and cover topics such as nutrition, first aid, preventive health, and sexual education following the National Health Standards. Students in our Upper Elementary program (E2) have either counseling or health class once a week for 30 minutes. The curriculum rotates yearly with an emphasis on first aid, disease or nutrition. A puberty lesson is also given to 4th graders. Erdkinder students have health class once a week for forty minutes. The class is taught by the counselor, who is also certified in Health 7-12. Topics rotate on a two-year cycle, and include nutrition, drugs/alcohol/tobacco, mental health, and sex education. The Erdkinder health class is graded with weekly homework assignments.
