Health: Elementary

  • The academic success of America's youth is strongly linked with their health. Health literacy is essential for preparing students to be healthy and productive members of society.

Elementary Students
  • Health Education is achieved through a partnership of teachers, students, families, administrators, schools, and community. The task of the Tigard-Tualatin School District is to create a learning environment in which all students are valued for their diversity, fostered in their wellness development, challenged, and motivated to continue learning and leading a healthy lifestyle throughout their lifetime.

    The current Health curriculum The Great Body Shop was renewed for adoption in May of 2017.
