Safe Environment /Boundary Programs
Since 2004, the diocese requires all schools to present a Safe Environment Program for our children in grades K-6. In Kindergarten, we read a book called, “The Swimsuit Lesson”, written by Jon Holsten. A specific script was developed and presented to us to implement for grades 1-6. You will find the PowerPoint used at St. Charles in Grades 1-3. The PowerPoint for grades 4-5 is very similar. Grade 6 has a lesson plan called, “Discovering God’s Purpose for Relationships.” Mrs. Robinson, our school social worker talks to each K-6 classroom in the Fall. Parents are welcome to come and sit in the back of the room.
If a parent does not wish their child to participate in this diocesan requirement, a parent refusal form must be signed prior to the presentation date. These dates are listed annually in the parent newsletter at the end of September.
