Wellness At MRMS


OVERVIEW OF THE CURRICULUM

 

 

The Wellness Program at Miles River is two-fold: Physical Education and Life Skills.

The Physical Education program is designed to provide all of our students with an opportunity to grow physically, socially and emotionally through activities, movement and fitness. Students’ fitness levels are monitored through our biannual fitness testing. Activities are adapted to create maximum student participation and movement throughout a physical education class. Community building, leadership, communication, and cooperation are nurtured through class initiatives and Project Adventure activities. The students will participate in physical education for the entire school year.

The Life Skills/Health program at Miles River Middle School is based on the National Health Education Standards, the Massachusetts Dept. of Education Health Curriculum Framework, and The Center For Disease Control and Prevention risky behavior guidelines.  Life Skills/Health is a three-year course addressing the social, mental, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of young adolescents, as well as the emerging and persistent health concerns of individuals and families.  The program is organized into 5 units including Nutrition, Violence Prevention, Alcohol & Other Drugs, Sexuality, and Service Learning.  Many topics such as media literacy, character education, gender equality, self-image, drinking/drugging and driving, acceptance, peer pressure, along with many more are integrated at all three grade levels. In addition, communication skills, decision-making, goal setting and stress management are taught and woven throughout the entire program. This program provides our students with the knowledge and skills needed to create and maintain a healthy living environment for themselves and others, and help them become healthy, productive adults in the 21st century.
