Elementary School Programs

Our elementary health education programs are available in three different delivery methods and are targeted to students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Read more about each delivery method below and contact Weller Health Education to schedule programs for your students or to share topic ideas to add to our health education library.

Program Delivery Options

In-person

If schools are open to visitors, the team from Weller Health Education will present health education programs to students in the classroom for no fee. The team will wear masks and will follow all required safety protocol.  

Synchronous programs

Weller Health Education staff offer live, virtual health education programs using video conferencing for no fee. This method of program delivery allows the team to reach students in the classroom as well as those working remotely and gives students additional synchronous instruction time.

Asynchronous programs

All Weller Health Education program topics are available in 12-15 minute modules for educators to use with students remotely for no fee. Each lesson includes a "show what you know" worksheet. All video modules can be accessed through our Asynchronous Video Library
