    Health Education

    New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education


         In a complex society, children’s physical, social, and emotional needs are constantly changing. Our goal then is to aid our students in developing positive, realistic, and responsible concepts of health promotion which would include the following topics:

    • Nutrition
    • Growth and Development
    • Disease and Health Conditions
    • Safety
    • Character Development
    • Decision Making
    • Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drug Education
    • Human Relationships
    • Family Life Education

                As such, the Health and Physical Education Program of Sea Girt Elementary School is dedicated to providing for the acquisition of skills and knowledge needed for our children to become responsible decision-makers, aware of their self worth, and cognizant of the differences that surround them.

               In addition, students must realize an individual is responsible for the health and physical well-being of others, either by his/her own actions, and that ultimately the responsibility for taking care of our health lies within ourselves.
