Physical Education/Health


Health

Lakeview Academy is pleased to offer a comprehensive health education curriculum  grades K-9.

The Elementary Health program follows the Utah core standards.  1st and 2nd grade do not have specific Utah core standards, but learn the same basic concepts as the 3rd-6th grades in an age-appropriate manner.  Some of these basic concepts include emotional health, physical health, physical safety, and community health.

Middle School Health Education is mandated for students in grades 7 and 9 and follows the Utah Core standards.  Students have multiple opportunities to learn about and apply the healthy lifestyle choices they learn in these classes. 

Health education at Lakeview is enhanced by character education classes. The school counselor teaches monthly character education classes to all students. Elementary classroom teachers reinforce these lessons with additional classes taught throughout the month.  The "Student of the Month" program showcases individual students who have shown capacity in living and exemplifying the monthly character traits focused on at Lakeview.
