Fifth-Grade Students, Parents Invited to Maturation Programs

To ensure fifth-grade students and their parents are able to take advantage of Canyons District’s popular maturation program, eight presentations have been scheduled through the month of March at four locations. The aim with this program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved health and maturation instruction districtwide. All girls and boys presentations are conducted by Carrie Ann Kemp, a popular professional speaker who has been educating and entertaining young audiences, and their parents, for nearly 25 years. Families may attend the presentation that best fits their schedule. Parents are advised to leave younger siblings at home.
