Students to Undergo Healthy Relationships Training
Paradise High School will be implementing a program through Wise Hope Crisis Center in Decatur, called "Healthy Relationships." This federally funded program consists of five weeks of classes, meeting once per week during the Family and Consumer Science classes. The program will begin on Tuesday, January 21. The lessons will address the need for mutual respect in every relationship. A variety of topics will be covered including healthy versus un-healthy relationships, bullying, conflict resolution, and teen dating violence prevention.
In conjunction with state mandates, it is our district's goal to cover these topics (as appropriate) at each campus. We feel that by addressing these important issues with our students, we will empower them to make positive choices. More information and a complete course overview can be found here:
