Note From Nurse Vanstory - Video and Permission Form


On March 6th at 2:00 in the afternoon, we will be showing the 5th grade maturation video. The program is called Always Changing for Girls/Boys. The boys and girls will be separated and shown their respective video. Your child brought the permission form home today in their Thursday Folder. The permission form is also below, in case their copy didn't make it home for you. The link for you to view the video, if you would like, is also noted on the permission slip. These permission slips must be turned in by March 6th. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
