Resources: Grade 5 Adolescent Development Presentation

Dear Families of Fifth Grade Students,

Thank you to all of our families who were able to attend our adolescent development presentations on June 6th.  We had well over 300 students/parents attend our sessions.  Thank you to Mr. Jason Semo and Dr. Dori Anchin for presenting to our 5th grade students and families. We anticipate replicating this program for our incoming Grade 5 students based on our experience that evening. 

As a follow-up to the evening presentation, we wanted to share the following resources for families who could not be in attendance:

The program was part of a clear, concise, and informative curriculum about the physical changes your sons and daughters can expect over the next few years. Through this program, we hope that our students develop a healthy respect and understanding about their changing bodies.  During the presentation we emphasized personal care and male and female stages of development. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
