The dates for Mexico Safety Town have been set for this summer and registration is taking place.
Registration deadline is Saturday.
Safety Town, a miniature layout built to the scale of the kindergarten child, is an educational setting in which safety lessons are taught with the child learning through actual participation and demonstration.
Instruction includes pedestrian, motorist, bus, stranger, police, fire, railroad crossings, bicycle, drugs, water, electrical, and general play and home safety.
Movies, videos, songs, posters, visits by the police and fire departments, safety specialists, and practice training encourage the child to enjoy and understand what he or she is learning.
Mexico Safety Town is co-sponsored by the Mexico Civic Club and the Safety Town Friends, with the cooperation of Mexico Public Safety and St. John's Lutheran Church. Ann Ridgway is the Safety Town teacher.
There are two sessions of Safety Town from which to choose – a morning session or an evening session. Both sessions will be held Tuesday, May 28 through Friday, May 31.
The morning session will run from 8 a.m. to noon, and the evening session will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both sessions will be at St. John's Lutheran Church, 1000 Dorcas Street.
Registration forms were distributed at the Mexico Public Schools pre-Kindergarten registration and at Mexico preschools. They are also available at Show Me Credit Union, Mexico-Audrain Library, or on the Mexico Safety Town Facebook page.
There is a non-refundable fee of $25 due at the time of registration which covers the cost of T-shirt, helmet, and work materials.
