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.

Instructional Resources
