Students will be taking their assessment this week on infectious diseases. The assessment is tentatively set for Wednesday, but it may be pushed back to Thursday if it is determined that students need more review. 

Later in the week, students will be embarking on a new unit on lifestyle diseases. The rubric should be in your child's drive for a project associated with the unit. By the end of the unit, students should be able to define, recognize the symptoms, know the treatments, and recite how to prevent the most common lifestyle diseases.  For this unit, there will be a separate vocabulary quiz and then a unit test.

If you have any questions about anything that we do in Health class, please feel free to e-mail me at bidellb@nhalv.org.
