Students participate in short, practical lessons, games and activities about healthy thought processes and choices.
CATCH Curriculum is designed to help youth develop healthy habits regarding fitness and nutrition. Students participate in hands-on lessons about nutrition, including preparing healthy snacks. They also are involved in fun, daily fitness activities.
TOP: Teen Outreach Program teaches kids about healthy relationships, about self-esteem, working towards goals and dreams, how to work as a team, help develop leadership skills and a community service learning piece.
Choosing the Best is an Abstinence until marriage program (parent permission slips required) for 6th - 8th grade students about healthy relationships, personality trait identification, dangers of drugs/alcohol and decision making and risks of early sexual activity. The emphasis is abstinence until marriage. (Curriculum is separated by age group for age appropriate discussions with a daily homework sheet for kids to discuss certain topics learned with parents.)
Youth Health Leadership Team: Students learn about the foods they eat and the importance of eating healthy, exercise and getting the rest they need. They will create healthy snacks, identify sugar and salt content in the foods we eat, work on starting a garden, plan community cooking events and other activities that support healthy eating habits.
Other clubs may be offered quarterly, such as: Lego club, cooking, arts/crafts, rocketry, computers, book making, music etc.
