Yes. Canyons District’s maturation program, an informational presentation for fifth-grade students and their parents, is being held a month later than usual. Presentations conducted by professional speakers have been scheduled through the months of March and April. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which dates best fit their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. The aim of the program, which supplants the fifth-grade maturation days that were previously held at each individual school, is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved instruction districtwide. Parents are advised to leave younger siblings at home. All programs start at 7 p.m.
