proof they are teaching our kids gay sex Waters Elementary

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 graders.
Additional Information:
This past fall (September through November), Waters Administration invited Between Friends to implement an 8 week curriculum with our 7th and 8th grade students. Between Friends goal is to educate and facilitate conversation regarding Teen Dating, Breaking Up, Bullying, Healthy Relationships, Domestic Abuse, etc. If you would like to learn more about this organization please visit: http://www.betweenfriendschicago.org

Also this past fall, Chicago Public Schools conducted a Youth Risk Behavior Survey for middle school students (6th through 8th grade). Three of our classrooms were randomly selected to participate in this survey (one 6th, one 7th, and one 8th). Letters were sent home only to the classrooms that participated for consent.
