Health Mission Statement
The mission of Health Education is to help students attain the knowledge and skills to thrive physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially as outlined in the Maine Learning Results and ten content areas of Health. This knowledge should help students gain an understanding of the multiple challenges of growing up, in order to be successful and healthy adults. Health Education also includes a set of skills to empower students to better manage stress and conflict, to make better decisions in the face of conflicting messages, and to be improved, assertive communicators, thus assisting them to lead healthier lives.
