I remember that when I was in about 5th grade, the teachers took the girls aside and told us that if we had our "period" then we could use the "supplies" in the teachers' bathroom. I went home clueless, and had to ask my mom what it all meant. She handed me a series of books with pictures, and pretty much left me to it.

So now Annika is in the 5th grade, and the teachers took all the girls aside and spent a fair bit of time with them going over the whole thing. (I love it when the school does my job!) They saw a movie, learned how babies are made (pretty much NOT on the 5th grade curriculum in Texas) and compared "supplies". It was pretty exciting - as they passed around the tampons to look at, one girl fainted and they had to call the ambulance... so all in all, a memorable day.
