During December, we are finishing up our units on Nutrition in each grade level. I am also reading each class a story book provided by the Anchorage School District to all elementary health teachers that compliments the personal safety lesson taught during the first quarter of school.
You may notice that after each unit, I send home a copy of "The Great Body Shop". These are yours to keep and enjoy. For 5th and 6th graders only, there will be an optional parent preview of materials for Human Growth and Development during 3rd quarter conference week. This is very informal, I will have curriculum available, so feel free to stop by and take a look or ask questions before or after your child's conference. I will keep parents updated as we get closer.
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy holiday season!
