Beginning next week, our students in Kindergarten through 6th grade will participate in the CHILD SAFETY MATTERS program funded by the Monique Burr Foundation for Children. This is a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate prevention program that is backed by research. This program educates and empowers students with strategies to prevent and respond to unsafe situations including bullying, cyberbullying, digital abuse, and all types of child abuse.
Gulf Coast Kid’s House has generously offered to provide this for us and allow their trained facilitators to present in the classroom with Mrs. Adams in Guidance. You may learn more about this program by visiting www.mbfchildsafetymatters.org. There is a Parent and Community component in addition to the school curriculum.
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Adams with any questions or concerns.
