The world can be a very dangerous place for young children. They can get lost, scared, injured and many times, there is no adult around to help. Children who attend Safety Town learn to recognize and respond appropriately to many hazards and dangerous situations. Under the guidance of district staff and community volunteers, children are introduced to a wide variety of safety concepts. The safety education includes topics about fire, drugs, animals, water, poisons, electricity, railroads, stranger danger, special emphasis on traffic and pedestrian safety, 911 and much more. The Sunnyside school gym is transformed into a small city complete with houses, streets, traffic lights and little cars to peddle through Safety Town. Songs, poems, art projects, movies, guest presenters and a short school bus ride combine to make Safety Town a fun and informative experience.
The 26th annual Safety Town is available to all children going into Kindergarten and first grade and will begin in 2015. Registration for the program will be available in May of 2015. Please check back!
Teen volunteers, ages 12 and up, are an important part of this program. If you enjoy children, have leaderships skills or need volunteer hours to build a resume, we would love to have you! The volunteer application for Safety Town will be available in April of 2015. Applications will also be available to pick up at the North Clackamas School District Jr. High School in May of 2015. All applications must be received by May 15th, 2015. Please note that all applications received on time will absolutely be considered, but that we often have more teen applications applying than are needed. A huge thank you to everyone that has applied!
