proof they are teaching our kids gay sex Waters Elementary
HOMEROOM TEACHERS | Grades K-2 MR. KING | Grades 3-4 MRS. DELCAMPO | Grades 5-6 MRS. BALLASCH | Grades 7-8
When does the Program start? Waters will implemented a Health Education program to all students in grades K-8 starting in April, 2014. Chicago Public Schools is mandating this curriculum for all students, grades K-8. Parents will be notified ahead of time when the unit will be taught in the 2014-15 school year.
Can I opt my child out? Parents wishing to opt their child (ren) out may do so before the Program begins. The opt-out date is Monday, April 7th, 2014. Students
who wish to opt out of the Program should bring a book (or books) to
school to quietly read, or they may use the time to work on pending
classwork or study (in a separate room) while the rest of their class
participates in the program. The program will be implemented during the
students Science class.
How will I know what to expect? A letter
with more specific information will go out to parents BEFORE the
program commences, so parents may talk to their child beforehand about
these sensitive topics.
Will the program be taught co-ed, or separately? All
classes will be taught inclusively with both boys and girls (coed).
However, in the 4th and 5th grades there are a few lessons that are
gender specific, i.e. hygiene, puberty, menstruation, etc. During these
lessons, classes will be split up between boys and girls. In
addition, some 4th grade material, specifically Puberty, will also be
included in the 5th grade curriculum. Traditionally this material was
introduced in the 5th and it is now introduced in the 4th grade. So to
ensure that the 5th grade does not miss out on this important
information our teachers will also deliver the content to our 5th
Additional Information: This
