5th Grade Puberty and Adolescent Development Program

  • This February 2020, all 5th grade scholars will have the opportunity to attend a one-time puberty and adolescent development presentation hosted in partnership with Aim for Success on your child’s campus. Aim for Success, a non-profit, health education organization, has received local, state and national recognition for their work in public schools. Aim for Success has challenged over 2.7 million young people to focus on their dreams and goals while developing respect, responsibility and resilience. Uplift’s partnership with Aim for Success ensures scholars across the network receive uniform instruction facilitated by speakers with content expertise. 

    Unless opted out by parents, each 5th grade scholar will have the opportunity to attend one, 90-minute presentation titled “Next Up”. The “Next Up” program will focus on important health information related to puberty, and also lay a foundation for healthy relationships. “Next Up” will teach the basic functions of the developing reproductive systems and the many changes that happen during puberty.

    Due to the sensitive nature of this presentation, parents have the opportunity to attend a parent preview of the program content prior to the scholar presentation. At these parent previews, the entire curriculum will also be made available for parents to review. Parent previews will be held at the following campuses:
