April is child abuse prevention month

Fillmore County Community Services would like to thank 3rd graders from Chatfield Elementary, Fillmore Central Elementary, Kingsland Elementary, Mabel-Canton Elementary and Rushford-Peterson Elementary for showing their support of child abuse prevention. Each class discussed the topic of secrets.

Teachers shared that they were able to give examples to their classes and have conversations about what secrets might be ok to keep and which ones need to be shared with a trusted adult. The children were reminded that if they are not sure if the secret is ok to keep or not, they should ask a trusted adult. This is another way children can learn how to report and let people know if they are being hurt or if they know of someone who is being mistreated. Way to stand up for others!

You can find the beautifully decorated “Pinwheels for Prevention” at the Fillmore County Courthouse, Sheriff’s Office and Community Service buildings.
