5th Grade Maturation Information

December 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians of Fifth Grade Students:

The 5th grade maturation program will be presented to students by our own Rockville Centre teachers, Ms Figueiredo and Mr. Bosch. You are invited and encouraged to join us for a Parent Orientation Webinar on Monday, January 9 at 6:00 PM via Zoom (see link below).  This virtual meeting will give you an overview of the curriculum, offer strategies on how to follow-up with your child, and an opportunity to ask questions at the end.  We recommend that you review the curriculum that is posted on all elementary websites under the “Parent Resource” tab before signing on. 

This program teaches children about physical growth and sexual development. Ms. Figueiredo and Mr. Bosch will not only explain and discuss the physical changes, but will give students an important chance to talk about their feelings. An additional component of the program, during the co-ed workshop, will focus on the state-mandated HIV/Aids Awareness education. 

The schedule for each of the elementary schools is as follows:



Riverside Elementary School

Friday, January 20th

Covert Elementary School

Monday, January 23rd

Wilson Elementary School

Tuesday, January 24th

Watson Elementary School

Wednesday, January 25th

Hewitt Elementary School

Thursday, January 26th and Friday, January 27th

If you feel that your child is not prepared socially or emotionally to participate in this in-school program, please write a letter to your building principal indicating that you do not want your child to attend the 5th grade maturation program and you will be sent a document that you with sign to acknowledge that the curriculum was reviewed with your child at home.
