|You are here: STEPHEN BAHNER|
Welcome to Health class! My name is Stephen Bahner and I teach Health at Wonder Park Elementary and Muldoon Elementary schools. I will be assisting you in teaching your children how to live healthy lifestyles and
make wise decisions in order to happy, healthy lives. It is my belief that the most important health education will come from you, the parent, who will see your children many more hours in their lives than I will. Healthy
lives begin with you through conversations about good choices for food, exercise, safety, alcohol/drugs, mental health, etc.
Students in Health class learn about healthy life habits, social & emotional skills, and how to care for their minds and bodies to give them the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our curriculum is The Great Body Shop.
You can visit this site at www.thegreatbodyshop.org. Kindergarten students will get a free CD of the music we use in class to teach from The Great Body Shop! Occasionally, students will be given the magazines we
use in class to take home.
Each month we will be studying a new topic in Health Class. Below are the subjects that we are studying each month. If you click the underlined name of the month you will be able to download the parents letters that
month. The .pdf file will include all grade levels in order. You can also tell which grade it is by looking in the top right-hand corner & counting the number of dots. (1 dot = 1st grade; 5 dots = 5th grade; K=Kindergarten).
In September/Early October, we will be teaching physical & sexual abuse prevention. Students will learn to say NO!, GO away from the situation, & TELL an adult they trust.
