"Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits."

-Thomas Jefferson 


Thomas Jefferson believed in the importance of taking care of oneself, making healthy choices and exercising good character, and this is what our SNIS health program is all about.  A Healthy individual is someone who is able to balance their physical, emotional and social well being, so each of our lessons will always focus on one or more of these important areas.  

Your child will receive one 40 minute health lesson every 12 days (that is every other 6-day cycle).  Each lesson will teach a specific health skill and concept focusing on one or more of the content areas depicted below.   If you wish to see specifically what your child is learning in health class, simply click on your child's grade page to view the content area, health topic and specific student learning objectives for every lesson.  Your child will hear or read stories, view short video clips, create art projects and act out various scenarios to aid in skill and concept aquisition.  To supplement what your child learns in the classroom you can also click on the resources page to find additional books, tips, current events, and websites to help guide your conversations at home around the dinner table!

If you wish to reach me, email is best.  My address is, or you can simply click on the envelope located at the top of the page.  I am excited for the new year ahead and look forward to partnering with you as we empower our children to make safe and healthy choices everyday!
