District Calendar 2011-2012


August 2011 From Superintendent Keith L. Meyer . . . Welcome to another year in the Helena Public Schools! As the Interim Superintendent, I am honored to continue my 30+ years of district service in this new position. Bruce Messinger and I worked closely together during the last 14 years – you can expect the continuation of commitment and excellence during 2011-2012. This year’s calendar is highlighting the newly revised and adopted Health Enhancement Curriculum, K-12. This curriculum directly addresses the first principle of the Whole Child Initiative, and the guiding principles adopted by the Helena Board of Trustees.

THE WHOLE CHILD - GUIDING PRINCIPLES Each student enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle. Each student learns in an intellectually challenging environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults. Each student is actively engaged in learning and is connected to the school and broader community. Each student has access to personalized learning and to qualified, caring adults. Each graduate is prepared for success in college or further study and for employment in a global environment. In order for our children and young adults to flourish and succeed, they must have the understanding and information to nurture and care for their personal health. The district educators and nurses created, and the Board adopted, this

comprehensive curriculum which is “designed to motivate and assist students in maintaining and improving health-related knowledge, attitudes, skills and practices.” You may access the full curriculum document on the district website:

www.helena.k12.mt.us/district/ departme/curricul/curricul/healthen/ index.dhtm

The vision of the Helena School District is to prepare students for life. The Board of Trustees and employees are committed to provide educational experiences that prepare students for post secondary learning opportunities and the world of work. Students possess talent, creativity and unique strengths that develop as they engage in the rich learning environment provided by the Helena School District. I’m looking forward to a productive school year with outstanding educational opportunities for all students. Thank you for supporting your Helena Public Schools, and special thanks to the Helena Independent Record and business partners for sponsoring this publication. Sincerely,

Keith L. Meyer Superintendent

Monthly features will include focus on physical activity, safety, environmental health, wellness, and other Health Enhancement concepts that Helena Public School educators address throughout their instruction.

In order to provide a comprehensive approach to delivering the Health Enhancement curriculum, educators, parents, and community members will need to work together to provide our students with the tools to make healthy and appropriate decisions for their future. You will find information, ideas and contact points to support Helena area children and families in the areas of health and wellness.

Personal health Healthy habits begin in childhood, setting the stage for a lifetime of nurturing, proactive behaviors. Parents

and caring adults set the stage for children to learn and practice a wide range of health enhancing activities. Here are some things we all can do to teach our children habits for healthy living:

• HAND WASHING

TIMOTHY C. BALLWEBER ORTHODONTICS

Teaching the proper way to wash hands, regularly and often, is the most effective way to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. It is especially important to emphasize the importance of washing after using the bathroom and before eating.

• PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE

Regular visits for well child exams, dental care, vision exams, and immunization completion demonstrate the importance of establishing relationships with community providers as well as being proactive in maintaining good health.

• KEEP FIT

Regular physical activity as part of family routines makes it more likely that children will continue with this habit into adulthood. Keep it fun and vary the activities, allowing choices in selecting favorite options.

• BE A ROLE MODEL

School Calendar Sponsors

Teaching by example is a powerful tool. Children will notice as we take steps to make healthy food choices, walk instead of ride, and limit screen time. Demonstrate the benefits of healthy habits by hiking, biking, and in general, moving in the great outdoors.

• BALANCED NUTRITION

Research shows that families who eat dinner together reap benefits in a multitude of ways. One example is the increased consumption of fruits and vegetables as well as fiber and other nutrients. Allow children to participate in grocery shopping, meal planning and food preparation, activities that will enhance their knowledge of healthy eating.

• SLEEP

How much do children need? Sleep is vital to a child’s growth and development as well as overall health. Bedtime routines help to ensure a period of 10-11 hours of sleep for the school-aged child.

• MAKE CHANGES TOGETHER

Creating and maintaining healthy habits as a family empowers children in their development of personal behaviors. Play together, eat together, exercise together and stay healthy together.

Preventive Care Personal Health and Preventive Care equates

to quality Physical Education programs in the Helena School District.

The emphasis in Physical Education classes is skill-based and fitness-centered starting in Kindergarten and culminating in High School. Elementary, Middle School and High School programs are aligned to the national and state standards for Health Enhancement. During a child’s Elementary Physical Education experience the students learn concepts and skills needed to develop a healthy lifestyle while mastering the basics of skill development. PE is offered two times a week for 30 minutes to grades K-5.

TIMOTHY C. BALLWEBER ORTHODONTICS

The Helena School District Health Enhancement Curriculum assesses students using the “Fitnessgram”, an evaluation tool that uses the current standards and focuses on fitness and healthy living rather than on sport and performance. Helena Middle School Health Enhancement class is an individual fitness and wellness based physical education program. The mission of Helena Middle School PE teachers is to educate the students on the importance of lifetime activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. HMS has a variety of activities, to give the students an introduction to many activities varying in aerobic intensity to achieve maximum fitness. Cooperative learning and teamwork are emphasized. The Physical Wellness Department at C. R. Anderson Middle School requires students to take responsibility for many aspects of their physical education. Once the foundation of responsibility and social skills is laid, the primary objective of this

department is to guide young people into being physically active for a lifetime. Activity in this program consists of fitness conditioning and testing, cooperative activities, sports, games, recreational activities and team building exercises. Capital High School’s Health Enhancement program encompasses the Freshman Health Enhancement (PE 1) which is a full year program of daily class, 49 minutes per day, required for all students for graduation. The program stresses a cooperative group style with students on teams and group responsibilities determined by the team. Sophomore Health Enhancement (PE 2) which is a full year program, one semester of daily PE and one semester of Health, 49 minutes per day, required for all students for graduation. The sophomore classes at CHS are focused on fitness, individual sports, and team sports. Students use fitness testing to establish a personalized fitness plan during their health class. Helena High school freshmen have four options to satisfy their freshman PE credit. The classes are designed to help students achieve and maintain a challenging level of health related physical fitness. Fitness testing and heart rate monitors are utilized in all four class options. The options are: Weight Training Option-conditioning program design, Team Sports Option- muscle groups, personal fitness programs and Fitnessgram testing, Personal Wellness Option of fitness, personal fitness program design and FITT principle and Traditional PE-individual and team sports are the emphasis. Sophomore PE students are exposed to a variety of activities with emphasis on individual and dual activities, along with some team activities.

Healthy Students and Nutrition Helena Public Schools has taken a huge leap forward in their efforts to bring education and nutrition together. This coming 2011-2012 year, students of all grades will begin to learn how their own health is directly linked to the food choices they make. They will be able to identify the feeling of hunger and fullness. Snacking throughout the day is better for weight control than skipping meals, which ultimately leads to overeating. Students will be given the new food graphic and be able to talk about food groups and what their body will do with nutrients. As the students get older they will learn how to read the labels of their favorite foods and what a portion size actually is, and analyze food choices to develop their own healthy diet. Students will be encouraged to trade their favorite fast food, candy and soda for more healthy options like whole grains, lean meats, fresh produce and low fat milk. While students are learning about good nutrition they will also learn about food safety, food borne illnesses and proper personal hygiene.

The new Health Maintenance & Enhancement curriculum will not only prepare students to stop and think before they eat, but will also focus on the value of exercising in a healthy diet. This curriculum will support your students in creating strong life skills and better eating habits that they, in turn, can share with their friends and family.

If you see and hear something frequently on TV, in magazines, movies, and other forms of media, it starts feeling ‘normal’. People tend to behave in the way they believe is most typical and accepted by their peers. If people believe that risky behaviors, like binge drinking or smoking, are ‘normal’, they are more likely to engage in those behaviors, especially if they perceive that adults condone the activity. Those who regularly engage in high-risk activities often do so with others and therefore believe everyone does it. If bystanders believe the risky behavior is the norm, they may fear social disapproval for intervening and therefore be reluctant to try stopping the dangerous behavior. Social norms, marketing campaigns and media literacy in general have demonstrated effectiveness in reducing high risk drinking, youth initiation of tobacco, driving while intoxicated, promoting parenting practices and promoting energy conservation behaviors. By focusing on the positive norms, rather than the negative misconceptions, young people can start making healthier, more informed decisions. You can still recognize the harms of risky behavior for the few that participate, while

highlighting the positive norm for the many that don’t.

School Calendar Sponsors

In Helena, students at all levels are participating in media literacy lessons that help them navigate the sometimes confusing world of the information super-highway. By being accurately informed and learning the skills to better understand media messages, our students will be better equipped to make positive choices. Additionally, by creating their own media messages, students get to apply the skills learned to topics of their own interest. Each spring, many of these student-created projects are displayed at the M.Gen.Fest:

The imMEDIAte General Festival, held at the Exploration Works and sponsored by Youth Connections. This

is a great opportunity for students of all ages to share their creations and come full circle by informing the adult community as well.

Life Management Skills Life Management Skills encompass a broad array of important and inter-related skills including decisionmaking and problem solving. All kindergarten and first grade students participate in classroom lessons from the Second Step curriculum in all elementary schools. The Second Step curriculum is comprised of these major areas: skills for learning, empathy, emotion management and problem solving. As students develop, their decisions and problems get more complex requiring higher level thinking skills. Brainstorming helps students see the vast variety of possible solutions to various scenarios. By talking through possibilities, students discuss outcomes and learn to demonstrate self-directed behavior without external rewards. HSD#1 has a clear policy that does not tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying in any form. All children need to be safe from all kinds of physical, social or emotion harm. We teach and reinforce assertive skills so children can speak up for themselves or others and know they

can reach out to trusted adults for assistance. We are committed to addressing concerns brought forth by students, parents or staff. To effectively resolve conflicts, skills of listening, mediation and conflict resolution are taught and implemented.

School Calendar Sponsors

Students face many stressors, positive stressors as well as negative. Calming strategies are taught that help students learn to better manage these stressors so that a plan of action can be devised. Students need to learn how to set and reach goals. One of the most important assets children can develop in their lives is responsibility for decision-making and personal actions.

The ability to make good choices and accept responsibility for decisions is key to growing up healthy, happy, and successful.

of the Human Body

From infancy, when babies begin discovering their hands and feet, and throughout elementary, middle and high school, our children are learning about their bodies and how they function, often through trial, error, and accident. Young children first learn about many of their bodily systems with the first fall from a bicycle: the sensory and nervous system tells them that the fall hurt; the muscular/ skeletal system tells that there are aches from the pulled muscles or maybe a broken arm; and the circulatory system shows them blood

from the scrape in the skin (integumentary) system. In the Helena District’s Health Enhancement Curriculum, students learn specific information appropriate to their age and grade level, from qualified and caring adults. Depending on the topic and grade, students will work with classroom teachers, registered nurses, PE instructors and coaches, counselors, librarians, and health education educators at the middle and high schools. As students learn about the wonders of their bodies and how to care for each system listed below, they will be more respectful and conscientious of nutrition, sleep, exercise, and making healthy choices.

are engaging students in rigorous and creative lessons including learning to dissect squid, building and launching rockets, and building homes for families within the community. For students who are healthy and focused, the lessons they receive from these educators will prepare them well for the next phases of their lives.

However, for students suffering from mental health issues, the anxiety of an upcoming test, thoughts of ending their lives, preoccupation with a parent who was recently incarcerated, or fear of where the family will sleep tonight can block a student’s ability to participate in even the most engaging lessons. If you have ever struggled to remain focused on a task because a headache, sore throat, or fatigue hindered your ability to focus, then you know a fraction of the struggles that students with mental health issues face on a regular basis. Current local data indicates one in four of Helena’s middle and high school students report feeling sad or hopeless everyday within the last two weeks. Many of these are the students who are unable to stay engaged in their classes. The Helena Schools support the mental health of students in a variety of ways consistent with the newly adopted health curriculum. School counselors, Comprehensive School and Community Treatment (CSCT) services; transitional school based mental health services, school nurses, Project SUCCESS Counselors, and Teen Screen services are all offered through the schools to support students’ mental health.

Sometimes mental health issues present themselves through behaviors including decreasing grades, withdrawal from friends and family, acting out at home or at school, or sadness among many other symptoms. If you are worried about your child, please contact your school to seek out support and help. These programs exist in schools for the purpose of preparing your student to be emotionally ready to participate in the exciting world of education the Helena School District has to offer.

If your child is exhibiting these behaviors, visit with your school to find out what programs and services may be available: • History of depression • Danger to self or others • Lack of empathy • Verbally inappropriate • Major events of abuse, neglect, death or other traumatic event • Withdrawn • Instigating or being a victim of bullying • Easily agitated • Change in affect/behavior • Low attendance • Discord with parents or peers • Anxiety • Poor Grades • Sleeping in class • References to death, darkness and violence in conversation, journaling or artwork

TIMOTHY C. BALLWEBER ORTHODONTICS

The only foolproof approach to sexual safety, of course, is to say “no” and defer sexual activity until later in life. The good news is that in Montana more than half of all adolescents do just that. But that leaves the other half at risk — many of them engaging in unprotected sex, exposing themselves to disease and unwanted pregnancy. In Lewis and Clark County more than 100 women aged 15-19 get pregnant each year, a rate per thousand of 56.8. This is higher than the rate for Montana as a whole, which is 48.8. Teenagers account for more than a fourth of the sexually transmitted infections investigated by the Lewis and Clark CityCounty Health Department.

In today’s hypersexualized culture of internet sites, mass media entertainers, and 24/7 programming, we all must work together to prepare our children for the normal changes in their bodies. They also need our guidance and protection as they encounter the endless assault of peer pressure, media glorification of irresponsible sexuality, and advertising come-ons. Working together to ensure that Helena’s children have information, guidance and protection is the only way to create a sense of security for parents and children alike.

SUN SAFETY TIPS Avoid unprotected exposure to the sun, especially from 10am to 3pm when its rays are strongest. Wear protective clothing. Always use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Avoid tanning salons and artificial tanning devices. If you can’t bear a summer without a tan, consider using a cosmetic self-tanning lotion. Regularly examine your skin and report any changes or suspicious spots to your doctor.

We have heard news reports of very young children calling 9-1-1 in an emergency and saving someone’s life. This ability to assess the risks in one’s home or environment and take action to prevent injury is a critical component of every child’s education. The comprehensive Helena Health Enhancement Curriculum addresses these educational needs at all grade levels and provides students with ageappropriate skills, reasoning abilities, and information to make healthy

choices and decisions as they grow and mature. Trained and compassionate educators work with all students, K-12, in areas including: Safety for Home, School & Communities: First Aid Procedures: Activity & Water Related Injury/Emergencies: Safe & Unsafe Substances: Substance Use vs. Non-Use: STI, HIV and other sexually transmitted disease prevention.

School Calendar Sponsors

Students learn best in a safe and healthy environment, and students must also learn how to keep themselves and their environment healthy and safe. The district’s Health Enhancement curriculum addresses the specifics of environmental health and individual responsibility. Following are examples of curriculum objectives at several levels:

KINDERGARTEN

TIMOTHY C. BALLWEBER ORTHODONTICS

• Recognize warning labels that identify harmful items & substances (e.g., cleaning products, plastic bags) • Recognize how the environment affects a person’s health • Identify ways to protect the body from the environment (e.g., sunscreen, insect repellant, sunglasses, goggles, hats)

GRADE 2 • Recognize different types of pollution and how they affect one’s health (noise, water, air, land) • Describe what an individual can do to help preserve the environment and promote environmental health (e.g., reduce, reuse, recycle) • Recognize that there are laws and regulations designed to promote and protect community and environmental health (e.g., littering, illegal dumping, noise ordinances

GRADE 6:

School Calendar Sponsors

• Define climate change and its effects on the health of individuals worldwide • Develop ways to promote recycling, reducing waste, and reusing items to prevent pollution that damages the environment, disrupts ecosystems, and affects one’s personal health

GRADES 9-12: • Compare present environmental health problems to past environment health problems and develop strategies to reduce or correct these problems for the future (i.e., destruction of the ozone layer, asbestos, secondhand smoke, nuclear disasters, carpooling) • Compare ways that individuals, communities, state and federal government can cooperate to promote environmental health In addition to our educators, custodians and nurses, students themselves promote environmental health and safety at their school. The high school driver’s education students make hallway posters that illustrate the dangers of driving while drinking or texting. Most schools have programs to promote recycling, reduce garbage, and increase student responsibility and environmental awareness. This gives students an opportunity for ownership in the health and safety of their school—and their world.

Health Enhancement combines the disciplines of “health” & “physical education” into a single curriculum with its focus on health-related outcomes. Concepts learned in the classroom are reinforced in the gymnasium and vice versa. Health is essential to a quality of life and leads directly to improved learning. Health enhancement develops the skills and behaviors necessary for students to become healthy, productive citizens who take

personal responsibility for their own well-being as well as a social responsibility for the health of their community. Early initiation of healthy behaviors is a predictor of enhanced school performance as well as less risk for morbidity and premature mortality in adulthood. Health enhancement is a critical component of the educational process.

Standard 1: Students have a basic knowledge & understanding of concepts that promote comprehensive health. Standard 2: Students demonstrate competency in a variety of movement forms. Standard 3: Students apply movement concepts & principles while learning & developing motor skills. Standard 4: Students achieve & maintain a challenging level of health-related physical fitness. Standard 5: Students demonstrate the ability to use critical thinking & decision making to enhance health. Standard 6: Students demonstrate interpersonal communication skills to enhance health. Standard 7: Students demonstrate health-enhancing behaviors. Content Standards indicate what students should know, understand, and be able to do in a specific content area. Montana Office of Public Instruction; Content Standards – Health. http://opi.mt.gov/

YRBS Question

Montana

Youth Risk Behavior Survey

2009

This chart shows a sampling of Montana high school students’ responses to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey of 2009. This online survey asks questions of students in 9th through 12th grades nationwide. The areas of questioning include: • Unintentional injuries and violence • Tobacco use • Alcohol and other drug use • Sexual behaviors • Dietary behaviors • Physical Activity • Asthma Montana high school students, through this survey, have shown that some students are engaged in behaviors detrimental to their health and well-being. It is for this reason that the Helena Public Schools, with schools throughout Montana and the nation, have implemented the comprehensive health enhancement curriculum in all our schools. Our children are worth this investment of time, caring and information. Further information is available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website:
