Welcome to Second Semester Leadership (Tuesday, Jan. 27th)
Welcome to the second semester of Leadership!

We also began our 31 days of "Redefining Leadership", as we talked through the DAY #1 QUESTIONS (Are leaders born or made?) today.
Welcome to Second Semester Health (Tuesday, Jan 27th)
Hard to believe the second semester is already here! Please get in the habit of checking the website regularaly, as I will update it daily. This is a great tool to use if you were absent, and would like to get the work that was missed.
Today we began class by going through the COURSE SYLLABUS. Please share with your parent or guardian and return the last page by Friday, January 30th. As I shared with students in class today, it is essential to get off on the right foot at the beginning of the semester! Students who have the greatest success in Family Health are those who pay attention in class and get their homework done on time. And, not surprisingly, these two traits tend to translate to doing well on tests and quizzes.
Work for Today:
After going through the syllabus, we dove right in and began thinking about what it means to take responsibility for your health. Please have the LESSON 1 WORKSHEET completed by the time you get to class tomorrow. (TEXTBOOK READING - LESSON 1)
Unit 11/ Final Exam Study Guide
Hard to believe finals are already upon us! PLease see below for more details.
Please see the UNIT 11/FINAL EXAM STUDY GUIDE for information that will be on the final test of the semester. Be aware that this exam will be weighted the same as the other exams we have had throughout the semester, and will NOT be a cumulative exam. Students will be allowed to use 1 3x5 handwritten note card on the exam. The exam will take place during the block periods on Wednesday, January 21st and Thursday, January 22nd.
Although all of the lessons listed in the study guide will be on the exam, the majority of the exam will cover lessons 69 and 70 from the textbook that deal with injuries, CPR, and first aid. I would highly recommend using the study guides at the end of these sections as a study tool.
Note about missing/late work! If you still have outstanding work, test, or quizzes that need to be handed in the last day to do so is Tuesday, January 20th! No work will be accepted after this time!

Friday, January 9th
Today we began class by discussing the work from lesson 64 completed during the block period days. We focused on thinking about the "Self-Worth Arch of Triumph" from the reading. We then moved on to lesson 65, where our focus on was thinking about ways that teens often put themselves in situations that contain unnecessary risk. The homework from the night was to complete questions #2,4,8,10,14,15,17,19,21,24,26 from the LESSON 65 STUDY GUIDE.
