Hello My Name Is...

Terry Sharp


Welcome to Healthy Living Class! This is a new class concept that combines health and physical education into one class. Each student will have Healthy Living on MW or TTH and every other Friday. 

In health, students will have fun engaging in various projects and activities that will help them have a better understanding of themselves and develop healthy habits to help them live a well-balanced life. Major units for 7th and 8th grade include: Exercise and Fitness, Skeletal System, Disease - Cause and Prevention, Drug Awareness, Mental Health, Healthy Decision Making Skills, Mental Health and Human Sexuality.  Health assignments will be on line through Google Classroom and Skyward during the 2nd and 3rd quarters. The school nurses will also be assisting in teaching some of our classes like Project Alert, Suicide Prevention, and Human Sexuality. Also, the high school SADD members come over and do a great presentation on the dangers of drugs, peer pressure and decision making. 

For the Physical Education part of class, the students will be expected and required to dress out in gym attire. This includes a t-shirt, shorts or sweats, socks and clean tennis shoes. The school will issue a pad lock and PE locker to secure their belongings. For the safety of the students, no electronics are allowed in the locker room. During class, students will learn fundamentals, skills and strategies in a variety of sports and recreational games through practice drills and modified games. Students will also have an opportunity to engage in multiple fitness activities in our weight room. Seventh grade will participate in a Fitness Gram test, which measures fitness levels in the areas of: cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. Eight grade students will be tested on the mile run in the fall and spring. At the end of third quarter, students have the opportunity to participate in a dodgeball tournament, where the money raised will benefit our PE programs here at the middle school.

 Healthy Living information can be found on Google Calendar or Google Classroom for health assignments. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at sharp@usd230.org or leave me a voicemail @ 592-7302.

Looking forward to a fun and productive year with your child!
