Welcome to Health & SEL with Mrs. Murphy!
It is my goal to introduce lessons that promote excitement of learning about our bodies and awareness of how we treat others.
Our school district has adopted The Great Body Shop program for our school health curriculum. It is a nationally recognized comprehensive health and substance abuse program used in schools throughout the United States. Each month covers a new topic and Student Issues will be sent home to inform you of what your child is learning about in health class. I encourage you to talk about the issues together with your family.
In addition to learning about our bodies, we will spend a great amount of time on Social and Emotional Learning. SEL is a process through which we learn to recognize and manage our emotions, care about others, make good decisions, behave responsibly, avoid negative behaviors, and develop positive relationships.
