Third Graders from Lanesboro, Kingsland, Chatfield, Fillmore Central and Rushford-Peterson Schools participated in a Child Abuse Prevention Project this April. Students discussed people in their lives who were trusted adults, who they could talk to if they were getting hurt, or something they knew that was being damaged. Their pictures decorated the Fillmore County Courthouse and Fillmore County Office Building. Thank you to everyone who participated. Below is the message that each child was able to read at the top of their coloring sheet:

The Right to Be Taken Care Of:

All children have the right to be taken care of, and it is the responsibility of all adults to help keep them safe. You are a precious part of our community, and we will do whatever we can to protect you. Every child has the right to be taken care of in ways that make them feel loved, safe, and secure. So if someone is trying to hurt you or something you know, tell a trusted adult because they are here to protect you.
