Mr. Akers' Health/PE Class

  • Body Systems Kahoot:

    My name is Scott Akers and I am a Health and PE teacher at Jackson High School.  I am also a member of the cross country and track & field staff at the high school.  I want to welcome all students to class.  It is my pleasure to be your teacher for this course and I look forward to getting to know you this semester.  I believe you will have an enjoyable experience in this course and will learn many valuable things to help you deal with the issues teenagers face.  

    The Health course is designed to equip the students with information that will help him/her maintain quality health in all of the major areas of health (physical, mental/emotional, social).  The student will be encouraged to examine his/her decisions and determine how to make choices that will benefit him/her both now and in the future. 

    The following are the responsibilities of each student in my class:

    1.  Be on time and quietly in your seats to begin and end class
    2.  Complete your work
    3.  Make up missed work when absent
    4.  Respect the learning environment
    5.  Respect others in class
    6.  Respect property and keep it clean

    Students will study many topics in the semester course.  As a major focus, we often analyze the choices students make and how this impacts their future.
