7th Grade Parents,
According to our state Health TEKS, we are to cover some Health topics in the middle grades related to sexual health. This is an entirely optional unit that requires parental permission. You can find a link to our state Health TEKS here.
Our school has partnered with Youth Equipped to Succeed (YES) to provide information on relationships and sexual health. Through these programs, students are provided with research-based information on how to achieve optimal health and are encouraged to focus on their dreams and goals. Please join us for the Parent Presentation to preview what the students will see and receive tools and strategies for communication with your child.
