• Health & Wellness/Family & Cosumer Sciences/NJROTC Department

     

    Mission Statements

    The mission of the Health and Wellness Department is to empower students to enjoy the benefits from healthy life-style choices.  We are committed to providing an environment that encourages lifelong commitments to physical, mental and social wellbeing that enhances the development of life-long wellness practices and ensuring that all students are fit, healthy, and ready to learn.

    The mission of the Family and Consumer Sciences Department is to empower students with the knowledge and skills to manage with reason and creativity the personal, family and community challenges across the lifespan of living and working in a global society.  We will achieve this by providing opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed for success.  Students participating in Family and Consumer Sciences courses learn effective methods for shopping, sewing, childcare, clothing care, cooking, nutrition and careers in the food industry.

    The mission of the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program is to instill a value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, a sense of accomplishment and to motivate young people to be better citizens.  The NJROTC program promotes a sense of patriotism, provides informed and responsible citizens while building a strength of character, encouraging a high sense of honor, self-reliance, respect and individual self-discipline.  We do this by instilling leadership skills, offering a rich learning environment and by giving cadets the opportunities they need to realize their full potential.  It does not seek any commitment to the military.
