Health Education

  • Sexual health education and human growth and development information

    5th and 6th grade - Beginning late April, 5th and 6th graders will begin learning about human growth and development (puberty and HIV/AIDS prevention). We would like to invite parents and guardians to attend a district presentation on one of the dates below to learn about what standards, activities, and resources will be addressed and used for the human growth and development lessons. This is also a great opportunity to answer questions that parents might have. The presentations will be held at the district office (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish). For more information, contact Teaching and Learning Services at 360-563-7257.
