Safe Touch Guidance Sessions for Elementary Students

Christian Academy is committed to being a community that cares for and protects children. In today’s culture, we realize that keeping children safe from sexual abuse is vitally important. Such abuse leaves lasting scars – mental, emotional and spiritual. For these reasons, the Christian Academy Board of Directors has mandated that every child in grades kindergarten-12 receive age-appropriate training on how to protect against unsafe touch.

In the elementary grades, we are providing a Christian program that teaches children about the wonderful way God made our bodies, trains children to distinguish between good, hurtful and confusing touch/circumstances, teaches children about secrets and provides children with tools to know what to do if confronted with an inappropriate situation. This program was presented to and approved by the Board of Directors at their March 17, 2008 meeting.

All kindergarten-5th grade Christian Academy students will receive this training in October. This curriculum, which comprises two thirty-minute sessions, will be presented to same-gender classroom groups. A copy of the presentation that is used with students is included here for your awareness.

Your questions or concerns are important to us. If you have questions concerning this training, please feel free to call me at (502) 447-6500 ext. 2004 or email at tdaniel@caschools.us.
