To help start discussions about health and wellness, Canyons District has developed an informational maturation-process program for fifth-grade students and their parents. Fifth-grade boys and girls and their parents are invited to attend maturation presentations by professional speakers. We encourage parents and their fifth-grade children to attend these free events together so conversations can continue in the home. The aim with this program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that previously were held at each school, is to provide consistent, sensitive, and approved maturation instruction districtwide.

Students took journeys to Rome, South Africa, deep into the ocean, and more through Google Expeditions. Ms. Martz, several parent volunteers, and a Google expert led second-fifth graders on voyages with teachers acting as tour guides.
Students also had the opportunity to practice their coding skills with the international “Hour of Code” event. Lower grades worked on iPads while upper grades worked on laptops.
