This project is a narrative that encompasses a collaborative effort in developing resources for a new health curriculum. The goals of the health curriculum are explored in relation to a local school philosophy, teacher practice and to local health program delivery. The qualitative research includes data collected through written reflections of the teachers participating in the collaborative project. These reflections are discussed in terms of interest and form. The reflections are also discussed in relation to teacher values, school philosophy, and caring curriculum. The narrative provides a picture of a local school as exemplary of a school striving to meet the goals of caring for students' physical, emotional, social, and academic needs.
