Robert Crown Visit in February

Hello Families,

On Thursday, February 23rd, we have representatives from the Robert Crown Program Center for Health Education coming to PCCS to speak to our fifth and sixth grade students about puberty and hygiene. Boys and girls will be spoken to separately and cover different topics.. The curriculum provided by Robert Crown adheres to the Illinois Health and Sexual Education standards and is age specific. Specific boy/girl information is listed below. We ask that you fill out the bottom of this form and return it with your student to school no later than Friday, February 10th. If you wish for your student not to attend, please check the appropriate box and provide your signature. We will find an alternative activity for your student during the eighty-five minute time slot.

Fifth and sixth grade boys will participate in the Michael Program. 85 minutes:

The Michael Program provides a unique “boys-only” format for puberty education. It compares female and male reproductive anatomy and introduces the physiological changes that occur during adolescence. Educators address secondary physical changes such as voice change, increased production of sweat and oil, acne, and the growth of body hair, as well nocturnal emissions and spontaneous erections.

Fifth and sixth grade girls will participate in the Linda Program. 85 minutes:

The Linda program provides a unique “girls-only” format for puberty education. It compares female and male reproductive anatomy and introduces the physiological changes that occur during adolescence. Educators address secondary physical changes such as breast development, increased production of sweat and oil, acne, increased body fat, and the growth of body hair, as well as the menstrual cycle.
