PEP is happening in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grade!
PEP’s health promotion curriculum is designed to reduce risk factors faced by adolescents and to promote resiliency in them. The team-taught, experiental lessons emphasize positive peer interaction, decision-making, conflict resolution and resistance skills. Some of the lesson plans are being adapted to address the media and communication issues faced by our youth as well.The Parent Educator Program has long been supported by our administration and staff, and the curriculum is available to review if you wish to see the lesson plans.
PEP is taught by volunteer educators (parents) who have attended a comprehensive 21-hour training program through the Center of Human Development in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Three grades will receive PEP training this year.
2nd grade in the fall, followed by 3rd grade in the winter, ending with 4th grade in the spring.
