Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program

  • Uncategorized

UPDATE • THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to control the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents. But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program  for fifth-grade students and their parents. Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. Please follow this link for event locations and times.

It started last year, when the East Sandy Elementary teacher decided to throw her hat in the ring for a seat on Sandy’s City Council. As she campaigned, unknowingly knocking on doors where her students lived and passing out flyers to parents — even dressing up as a ballot for Halloween — Stroud’s third-grade students grew more and more invested in the outcome of November’s election, declaring that they would vote for her as they cheered for her in the hallways.
