Welcome to Melville Health Page
Health Education is exciting in the elementary grades. Students are enthusiastic about learning about their bodies and how to stay healthy. Health lessons are done at least twice a month. The health teachers are Linn Alvarnas RN MEd and Pamela Storme PE. Health educators collaborate on the monthly health topic. We utilize The Great Body Shop curriculum. Each month students receive their own issue of The Great Body Shop. Each issue will present an appropriate level of knowledge about the topic, vocabulary, games and other valuable information, help build critical thinking skills, and promote behaviors that relate to health goals. A Family Bulletin is included on the back of each issue. It includes at home discussion suggestions, activities, and further reading suggestions on that month's topic. For more information on student health lessons for to the Health Curriculum tab for a schedule of health topics and content areas by Grade level.
