Mexico Safety Town will be held July 17-22. There will be two sessions. Session one is from 8 a.m. to noon each day, and session two 5:30 to 8 p.m. each day. Both sessions will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church.
Safety Town is a miniature layout built to the scale of the kindergarten child. It is an educational setting in which safety lessons are taught. The child learns 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 police and fire departments and 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.
Safety Town is for children entering kindergarten or just completed kindergarten.
