⦁ To successfully meet the state health and physical education requirements of ½ credit
⦁ To sharpen students’ judgment as they consider health issues and learn to apply
decision-making skills to make healthy choices.
The following rules are needed and in place for each student to be successful. Students are expected to be in class by the time the bell rings. If students are not in class by the time the tardy bell rings, they will need to obtain a tardy pass from one of the tardy kiosks in the hall. Students are expected to come to class with the appropriate materials to participate. These materials include: Their technology (chromebook), and a writing utensil. The classroom environment must be one that allows the educational process to take place. The following will not be tolerated:
Using cell phones (I do not allow cell phone use in my classroom during instructional time.)
The use of earbuds/headphones during class (they must be removed and put away prior to entering class)
Student chromebooks are assigned to all students so all students are responsible
for bringing their chromebooks daily
Talking without permission
Throwing paper and other items
Eating in class (Unless approved by the teacher)
Leaving the classroom without permission and without a pass
Inappropriate language (vulgar or obscene; no profanity)
It is expected that all students will respect their teacher, all faculty and staff, other students, school property and the property of others.
All of the rules and procedures of the Henry County Schools Student Handbook will be strictly enforced. Consequences for violation of any of the rules or procedures may include, but are not limited to the following: verbal correction, changed seating assignment, call/email to parents, and/or discipline referral.
Classwork/Daily participation 40%
Final Exam 20%
Make-Up Work Policies
All assignments are due on their due date. I will not accept any late work unless the student has an excused absence. With an excused absence, students have the amount of days missed plus an additional day to get any missing assignments done. If a student misses any quizzes or tests, it is the students' responsibility to make up during class time.
Choosing The Best Journey
All students enrolled in grades 9-12 in Georgia’s public schools are required to take a course in Health Education. Included in health education are topics of study for mental health, growth and development, disease prevention, and family living. These topics of study involve classroom instruction on human sexuality and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) prevention.
Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Laws, Georgia’s Public Schools Standards, and State Board of Education policy requires all schools to offer a course study in human sexuality and AIDS prevention. Eagle’s Landing High School teaches the nationally recognized program, Choosing the Best Journey. However, your child will not be required to participate in these course studies without your consent. Should you choose to exempt your child from studying these issues, he or she will be given other health topics for study (please be sure to select the appropriate response for your child’s instructions on the following page).
Thank you for partnering with ELHS for your student’s high school education. We look forward to a great year!!!
