   A note to the student: The Navarro Jr. High Health Education course is designed to help you examine your lifestyles, select life long goals and make plans to achieve and maintain optimum health. In health education you will learn about health information and skills necessary to become healthy adults. You will learn about behaviors in which you should and should not participate . This class will provide you with the information and skills necessary for physical, mental/emotional and social well-being.
