UPDATE • THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to preempt 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.

The aim of the program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Parents are advised to leave younger siblings at home.

Talking to your child about growing up doesn’t have to be difficult or awkward. To help you rock “the talk”—or 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 (Jim Kelly for boys, and Carrie Ann Kemp for girls) have been scheduled through the months of March and April. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fit their schedules, 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 are advised to leave younger siblings at home.

Your children are growing up.

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

Fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents are invited to attend maturation presentations by professional presenters.  The District encourages all parents and their children to attend these free events together so discussions can continue in the home.

The aim with this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved maturation instruction districtwide.
