Sports day was a HUGE success and I just wanted to express how grateful I am to have so many volunteers come out and help, means a lot, thank you very much!

White team was the winner this year, congratulations! 

If any student received a grade that is under a 3 on their most recent test, that student may make the corrections necessary to boost their grade. They can hand in their test during the next Health Class. 

-When there is an article due, I would prefer it shared with me via Google Docs with the link of the article copied and pasted at the bottom of the summary.
-The rubric is posted under resources as well as shared to each student. Please email me with any questions or concerns. jdigangi5601@lbcrs.org 

Here is what to expect for the year...

->Emotion management. Students can defuse conflicts and avoid fights by staying in control of their emotions. 
->Stress can take a painful toll on the lives of early adolescents. Students will learn how to cope with stress by viewing stressful situations as challenges rather than threats. Especially with entering the High School level next year, these skills can help be successful.
