As one of Rec & Ed’s most popular summer educational programs draws to a close today, another 800 AAPS children have become proud Safety Town graduates.
And that means a lot of Ann Arbor area parents are most likely learning a thing or two about safety issues from their enthusiastic five-year-olds, as well.
Held at Dicken Elementary, the program is held in four one-week sessions of half days. Children entering kindergarten and Young 5’s, as well as some who’ve completed kindergarten learn safety awareness in a fun and entertaining way.
Guest speakers include police officers, firefighters, water safety specialists and “Buster the Bus,” AAPS’ own talking school bus.
