SAFETY TOWN 2018
SPONSORED BY THE OLMSTED EARLY CHILDHOOD PTA
For children starting Kindergarten in the fall of 2018.
Safety Town is a child accident prevention program for incoming kindergartners. It is a program that introduces safety awareness and preventative procedures to the children. Children practice real life situations before being confronted with situations on their own. Safety Town is the foundation of safety education.
Children who attend will practice safety “out on the town” in a miniaturized city layout designed to teach children safety near roads, railroad crossings, while on their bikes or walking in their neighborhood. Videos, songs and lessons with visits from local Police, Fire and Bus Departments as well as field trips to Police and Fire Departments, all help your child enjoy and understand what he or she is learning.
Safety Town is held at FALLS-LENOX PRIMARY SCHOOL during June. Each Session is 5 days long, which includes graduation on Friday.
Registration opens March 1, 2018. Deadline May 11, 2018
OECPTA is in need of student volunteer instructors. Students must be in grade 7-12 and available to help the entire week of a session.
Volunteer registration will be different this year. Officer Bob will be holding open interviews on May 9, 2018, 6:00-7:00pm at the OF Police Station. No appointments are needed.
