Cherry Creek School District preschools support Pinwheels for Prevention

students at arrowhead elementary school sitting in a field holding up their pinwheels and sign reading arrowhead pinwheel garden“Pinwheels for Prevention” are being planted across Colorado as part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Gov. John Hickenlooper kicked off the campaign to increase child abuse awareness and prevention during a ceremony on April 1 at the State Capitol.

“It is the responsibility of every single person in Colorado to do everything we can to protect our children. They are the single most important resource the state has,” Hickenlooper said.

Across the Cherry Creek School District, preschool students, teachers, staff and family members are joining the effort by wearing blue and sharing the pinwheel gardens at their schools.

“At Cherry Creek Preschools we value our relationships with our parents and recognize them as partners in education,” said Stacey Peoples, director of Early Childhood Education for Cherry Creek Schools. “We wanted to be a part of “Pinwheels for Prevention” as child abuse awareness is a very important issue that can affect all of us. This is a great way to bring awareness to our families as we build community with them.”

Blue is the color and the pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. Get more information about Colorado’s child abuse prevention efforts here.
