“There is no AP health class to take, but by learning these lifelong skills about how to take care of yourself and others in your community you could potentially save a life.” Our program includes substance abuse education, human sexuality, stress management, American Red Cross certification in first aid and CPR, driver’s education and fitness and nutrition. We believe in taking care of ourselves, but also extending a helping hand to others in our community and beyond. By certifying each student in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR, we are allowing them to think beyond themselves and how they can safely get involved in situations to help people rather than sit back and be a by-stander. Each student will receive an American Red Cross certificate good for 2 years upon completion of Health and Wellness One.
In the Health and Wellness department we could not agree more with Ralph Waldo Emerson who wrote, “The first wealth is health.”
