LAPLACE — Kindergarten through third grade students at LaPlace Elementary School recently discussed telling vs. tattling and learned telling happens when something of importance needs to be conveyed, such as someone being hurt and needing an adult to help, while tattling is when you want to get someone in trouble.

School counselor Mechelle Terrio discussed safe and unsafe touches and read “Care-ageous Kids: Keeping Your Body Safe.”

Students also completed a “Tell a Grown Up!” coloring sheet and viewed the video “Seven Little Monsters, I’m Telling.”

Fourth and fifth graders focused on bullying, while seventh and eighth graders worked on career folders.
