5th Grade Growth & Development Program

  • Each spring the Hempfield School District provides a program on growth and development for the fifth-grade boys and girls.  The program is presented in gender-alike groups during the school day.  Because of the school closure last spring, the program did not occur for fifth graders.  As a result, we are conducting the program this year for students in both fifth grade and sixth grade.

    We encourage you to view these brief videos before the school program so that you are aware of the content and are able to discuss 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 which is scheduled. An alternate activity will then be provided for your child during the time of the growth and development program.

    Presentation dates are as follows:
