5th Grade Growth & Development Program

  • Each spring the Hempfield School District provides a program on growth and development for fifth-grade boys and girls. The program is presented in gender-alike groups during the school day.

    We encourage you to view these brief video links (found to the right) before the school program so that you are aware of the content and can discuss it with your son or daughter at home after the program.

    We understand that some parents may choose to provide this education to their child on their own. If you have a significant objection to your child participating in this program at school, please contact your child’s teacher prior to the presentation. An alternate activity will then be provided for your child during the time of the growth and development program.

    Presentation dates are as follows:

    • CES – Tuesday, May 14 at 9:15 a.m.
    • EPES – Tuesday, May 14 at 10:15 a.m.
    • FES – Tuesday, May 14 at 11:15 a.m.
    • LIC – Tuesday, May 7 at 10:15 a.m.
    • MES – Tuesday, May 7 at 9:15 a.m.
    • RES – Tuesday, May 7 at 11:15 a.m.

    If you have specific questions about the presentation, speak to your child’s classroom teacher or contact your school nurse. Please reference our staff directory for telephone numbers.
