5th Grade God's Plan for Growing Up
Mr. Jim West from Total Life Counseling was the guest speaker for last session on Internet Safety and Social Media. Mr. West did a great job of interacting with the students and answering their questions. He also spent time with parents who attended and gave them helpful tips on how to keep their kids safe surfing the web.
The next session is Friday, February 3rd. Students will explore the Finer Points of Etiquette which culminates in a luncheon where they will practice their newly acquired skills. On Wednesday, February 8th, boys and girls will be in gathered in separate classrooms to listen to our guest speakers discuss God's Plan for Puberty. Look for more details to come home from your child's teacher.
