Dear Parents/Guardians:

Human Growth & Development lessons will be presented to all our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students during science classes May 28 - May 31, 2019. We want parents/guardians to be aware of the presentations and when they are taught so there is an opportunity for discussion with your child(ren) at home. Parents/guardians are also welcome to attend the presentation with their child and at any point may examine the curriculum and instructional materials.
