Each year (except last year due to school closure) SDFAS offers Health Education Classes with guest presenters. Similar to previous years’ format, a teacher from Planned Parenthood will be visiting to conduct a workshop with each class (content and language age-appropriate). These visits were very appreciated in the past by students and faculty, who noted the neutrality, objectivity, and skill of their high-quality workshops. By following the necessary COVID-mitigation protocols, we are pleased to welcome Ms. Amanda Chavez on Monday, May 17th (7th grade) and Thursday, May 20th (6th and 8th grade). Nurse Marilyn will also attend the sessions to support the students.
More information about PP’s programs is available in the attached document. For our purposes, the 6th-grade workshop will focus on puberty, the 7th on STIs, and the 8th on healthy relationships. Ms. Chavez will consult with the school to tailor her sessions to our science curriculum and our students’ needs. We hope this program will contribute to ongoing conversations at home. If you do not wish your student(s) to attend the workshop(s), please email Mme Addo at email@example.com by May 8th.
