HEALTHY HAPPENINGS AT HOHOKUS SCHOOL
WELCOME TO MRS. BUKSAR'S WEB PAGE
An effective health program addresses the health needs and interests of students at different periods of growth and development. Health education can guide a student to maintain and improve their physical, mental, and social health, prevent disease, and reduce health-related risk behaviors. This is the goal of our school's health curriculum.
The Family Life portion of our health curriculum is mandated by the State of New Jersey.
