Health Meeting for 6th - 8th Grade Parents Thursday, Jan. 8

Adie Siebring, Dean of Students, is hosting a special meeting for parents of middle school students to discuss Island School's approach to health education.

We have arranged for Cynthia Chiang, a health educator from Planned Parenthood, to lead discussions with the students in a series of short, age-appropriate sessions, each one dealing with a different aspect of changes the young people are (or soon will be) experiencing. An email was sent to parents in December, outlining the content of these session and inviting you to attend an informational meeting as follows:

• Time - 6:00 - 6:30 - 6th grade
              6:30 - 7:30 - 7th grade
              7:30 - 8:30 - 8th grade
• Place-  Noni Room

These can be sensitive matters for some parents. Therefore, we have arranged for this special meeting to provide information and to answer questions.

Please contact Adie if you have questions or concerns, or if you do not want your son or daughter to participate in this program, in which case they may attend a study hall.
