This one semester class is a combination of Family Health & Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) in which students will earn the required health credit for graduation. Along with the original Health curriculum, SADD incorporates a strong leadership component.
Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) gives teens the opportunity to build presentation skills, cooperative learning, and goal achievement. Each SADD student works in small groups and effectively teaches elementary children about the many issues related to peer and media pressures that can often times result in bad decisions. These SADD teens teach refusal skills as well as the dangers and consequences of tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use, bullying and bad eating habits. They also work as advocates promoting the anti-tobacco and drug message to their peers. SADD is also a co-curricular club as well as a class, at the Freshman Campus. Each member will be expected to continue attending meetings on assigned club days throughout the school year.
