Kindergartners invited to Safety Town

Posted May 14, 2018

Plymouth-area students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall are encouraged to participate in Safety Town this summer.

Safety Town students learn safety awareness and accident prevention in a fun, hands-on setting, as children practice “real-life” safety skills indoors and outdoors. Activities are guided by certified teacher Denise Roth and police officer Lindsay Baumhardt.

Safety Town will run from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday from July 23 to Aug. 2 (no class Friday, Aug. 3) at the Plymouth Youth Center, 609 South St. Fee is $40 per child.

Forms are due June 30, but parents are encouraged to register early. Space is limited, with priority given to Plymouth School District students, and registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Safety Town, which has not been offered in the area for several years, is being coordinated this year by Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation. It will cover the following subjects:

  • Police & Fire: Learn how and when to dial 911; check out a police car and a bicycle; and enjoy a visit from a fire truck.
  • Ambulance: Tour the inside of a Plymouth ambulance.
  • Busing: Take a safety ride on a bus.
  • Playground: Practice safety skills at City Park.
  • Veterinary: Learn how to approach animals.
  • Crossing Guard: Visit with a crossing guard; discuss “Walk” and “Don’t Walk.”
  • Water: Learn about safety around water.
  • Poisons & Electricity: Meet Mr. Yuk and Mr. Ouch.
  • Storm Awareness: Stay safe when the weather turns bad.
