Kindergartners invited to Safety Town

Posted May 13, 2019

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

Participants learn safety awareness and accident prevention in a hands-on setting, as children practice “real-life” safety skills indoors and outdoors. Fun activities are guided by certified teacher Denise Roth, with assistance from community helpers.

Safety Town will run from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday from July 22 to Aug. 1 (no class Friday, Aug. 2) at the Plymouth Youth Center, 609 North 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. Safety Town is coordinated by Community Education & Recreation.
