Growth and Development Information for Parents of 4th and 5th Graders

The New Jersey Department of Education mandates that instruction in Family Life be provided by all public school districts. Soon, your 4th /5th grade student will be participating in the Family Life portion of Health Education related to Human Growth and Development.

The  lessons,  which  are  taught  by  the  district  school nurses,  were  drafted  by,  and  in  collaboration with,  the  Summit  school  nurses,    teachers  and  administrators, and  follow  the  New  Jersey  Core Curriculum  Content  Standards  for  Comprehensive  Health Education  as  mandated  by  the  state.
