8th Grade Dance Meeting – April 26!

The 8th Grade Dance committee is looking for parent volunteers to assist in the creation of props and decorations to be used at this year’s 8th Grade Semi-Formal Dance on May 19.

We promise you don’t have to be crafty to volunteer!  As long as you can cut, color and glue, we need you!

This is also a great opportunity to support our BSS 8th graders as they begin their transformation from middle schoolers to high schoolers.

It is also a way to pay-it to forward if you have a child entering 8th grade in the next few years.

Please see the link to sign up for the meeting:

Thanks so much for your time!

Wear Blue DayApril 7th

Friday, April 7th is Wear Blue Day in Delaware.

Every year, Prevent Child Abuse state chapters promote Wear Blue Day to raise awareness and engage their local communities. Blue is the color of child abuse prevention and wearing blue sends a strong signal of advocacy and support. Whether it’s your office, your classroom or your family, get everyone excited to go blue.

Pinwheel Gardens

One of the first signs of spring every April is pinwheel gardens blooming throughout Delaware. “Growing” your pinwheel garden is the perfect way to grow the awareness of child abuse prevention efforts in the First State. Contact us today to plan a pinwheel garden of your own and make sure you get your pinwheels on time.

Champions for Children Breakfast – May 5th

We wrap up Child Abuse Prevention Month and look forward to the future at our annual Champions for Children Breakfast. Our partners in prevention and community supporters gather together to celebrate and reinforce PCAD’s mission.
