Safety Town 2018
Safety Town, an award-winning program for young children, is coming back to Montvale. Safety Town will begin on Monday, July 2nd and will end on Friday, July 13th. (We will not have Safety Town on July 4th). All children entering kindergarten in September 2018 are eligible to sign up for this exciting program. For two weeks, students learn about traffic safety, fire safety, water safety, household safety, stranger awareness, school bus safety, and other safety concerns. Children attend one session each morning for nine days (10:30am-12:00pm). Tuition is $80.00 per child for the entire 9-day course.
Safety is taught to the five year olds through presentations, pretend play and videos, and hands-on activities. A village is outlined on the school blacktop. Streets and sidewalks are drawn on the macadam; traffic control signs are used to simulate traffic controls as children drive Big Wheels around “town.”
Guest speakers are invited from various community agencies; police, first aid squad, fire department, water safety and hospital personnel, Otto the Auto, and many more. All activities and projects reinforce the skills learned.
Middle school students are invited to serve as Junior Counselors under adult supervision; flyers seeking student volunteers will be sent home from Fieldstone Middle School in the near future.
Meanwhile, sign your pre-K child up NOW, before all of our 60 spots are taken. This year’s advisor is Mrs. Erica Ripston. You may contact Mrs. Allgor or Ms. Luparello with any questions at (201) 391-2900 ext. 3500. Please mail below registration form with payment to: Safety Town c/o Memorial School, 53 W. Grand Avenue, Montvale, NJ 07645.
The first/second grade wing of Memorial Elementary School will be closed this summer for construction. One component of the construction project is a non-friable asbestos abatement. The contained wing will be closed to all staff and students.
