Pinwheels for Prevention at Central Elementary

Fourth grade students at Central Elementary recently created a pinwheel garden in front of their school sign after learning about child abuse prevention in their class.

“I have talked to my students about how to prevent child abuse and ways to communicate to adults if they think they are being abused at home or other places,” said Rachal Scalf, fourth grade teacher.

After learning about child abuse prevention, students along with school principal Kevin Disney created the pinwheel garden to help increase awareness.

“The Pinwheels for Prevention program is established to bring awareness to the public about child abuse and the pinwheels represent people who are against any child being abused,” said Scalf.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Additional information about child abuse prevention can be found on the Health & Human Services website at
