Brad Barton Assembly 3.2.20

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER BRAD BARTON

EME’s active Student Council used the funds raised selling Valentines to bring Magic Brad’s message of tolerance, kindness and personal empowerment to East Midvale students.   The assembly WOW-ed all attending.

Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program

UPDATE • THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to control the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents. But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program  for fifth-grade students and their parents. Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. Please follow this link for event locations and times.
