Safe Environment

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 1-3The 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.

The diocesan required Boundary program will also be presented to 7th and 8th graders. Grade 7 part 1 and part 2 presentations are here. Grade 8 part 1, part 2, and part 3 presentations are here.

 

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.
