Fifth Grade Human Growth & Development
Fifth Grade Human Growth and Development Class is scheduled for April 1.Fifth grade students at Parkway will participate in the Human Growth and Development class on Friday, April 1st. Shellie Hansen (school RN) and Jennifer Mickelsen (PE teacher) will provide instruction to the girls. The boys will be taught by Ben Bazaldua (school counselor) and Greg Hewitt (PE teacher). Boys and girls will be taught separately, using the “Girls Only” and “Boys Only” versions of the Proctor & Gamble Always Changing videos. The lesson lasts about 45 minutes.
This spring, fifth grade students will also view a 15-minute educational HIV/AIDS video. The school board-approved KNOW Curriculum and video (“HIV and Me: Marissa’s Story”) is used to instruct students in HIV/AIDS.
We encourage you to mark this date on your calendar and talk with your student when they come home from school about any additional questions they may have after participating in the class. Students will be given a question card to prompt conversation and sent home with hygiene product sample(s).
Parents/guardians have the right to preview the materials used in the class. Those that wish to opt their child out of this presentation should call the Parkway Intermediate Office at (509) 754-9729 or complete the "Opt Out" form below.
