Fifth Grade Puberty Program

  • Fifth grade can be a time for various physical changes as students approach adolescence. To help students understand the physiological changes taking place during the process of growing up, a classroom lesson is presented as part of the fifth-grade curriculum. The presentation is factual and stresses the naturalness of the changes that occur during puberty. The importance of personal hygiene, good nutrition, and the balance between exercise and rest is also stressed.

    By law, parents are able to have their children opt-out of the puberty presentation. Opting out of this aspect of the Health Education curriculum shall not be reason for disciplinary action or academic penalty (Illinois School Code 105ILCS 5/27-9.1). Parents who choose not to have their child attend the classroom puberty presentation must inform the school health office and complete an opt-out form.
       

    The District collaborates with Candor Health Education to bring developmentally appropriate health education to our students. We anticipate the same programs being offered to our students in the 2023-2024 School year.

    Parent Overview Session – 2022-2023

    An overview of the classroom presentations will be presented through a videotaped webinar session and accessible from February 10 through March 31, 2023.
