5th Grade Maturation Program Dates Announced

Posted in News & Announcements


To help start conversations about health, wellness and the maturation process, Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program for fifth-grade students and their parents.

Presentations conducted by professional speakers have been scheduled through the months of February and March. Parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which dates and locations are most convenient, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. 

The aim of the program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that were previously held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Parents, please leave younger siblings at home.
