Health Class • Complete by 10/18

More info about the health class can be found by using the link above or following this link: https://chstrojanband.com/health-in-band/

Parents: the due date for the health class assignments was by the first week of school, but I am happy to allow the students to have extra time without penalty. If your child has not completed the eADAP course, they are officially behind and next to get busy. In addition to the eADAP course, they have 9 Units to complete in order to earn health/PE credit through participation in Marching Band. Please make sure this is 100% completed by the end of Fall Break (October 18).
