Atkinson Nurse Notes

Welcome to the Atkinson School Health Office


The Growing Up education unit for Atkinson fifth graders will be held during the first two weeks of April. Lessons are held during PE class and are taught by the school nurse, guidance counselor and PE teacher. There are two parts to the lesson - both are based on a video followed by a class discussion.

The boys and girls will be separated for both lessons. The first part of the lesson addresses the physical changes of puberty. The second part of the lesson addresses the social and emotional experiences of puberty.

I would encourage you to use these classroom presentations as an opportunity to communicate openly about these topics with your fifth graders and to continue to have these discussions as they approach their adolescent years.

If you do not want your child to participate in these lessons, please send a note to Mr. Landry.
