Comprehensive Health Education
Manning Primary School teachers use the South Carolina state Health and Safety Education Curriculum Guidelines, Standards and Performance Indicators to implement our Comprehensive Health Education. Teachers use the lessons, activity ideas and assessments suggested in the state curriculum guide. Materials used are listed at the end of each grade level curriculum guide and are listed as “Resources.” Every class receives this health instruction for one hour per week from the beginning of the school year in August through May. The Curriculum can be accessed through the following link.
In addition to the activities outlined in the curriculum guide, all students receive nine editions of Health Studies Weekly, published by American Legacy. Teachers use these to enhance the health education program for nine weeks of the school year.
Manning Primary School has a school-wide health initiative.
