A Grand Junction school district says an email sent to students about a Christian event for young girls was sent out because it met the district's standards.

Parents are upset after a flier promoting an event called "Wake Up Sleeping Beauty: Worship At His Feet" was sent to students. The event encourages girls to stay pure while looking for love.

According to KJCT-TV, Mesa County Valley School District 51 says the flier was sent out by a service called Peach Jar. The service allows anyone to send out information to parents and school district officials say they cannot discriminate against any particular group.
