Schools Welcome Senior Citizens: Premier Citizen Discount Cards Available
The Dearborn Public Schools has a tradition of welcoming and encouraging senior citizen residents to attend school events by offering free admission and other special discounts via the Premier Citizen Discount Card.
“Many local residents in the over 60 crowd are Dearborn Public Schools alumni. We are happy to welcome them back to school,” notes Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Glenn Maleyko. “With the Premier Citizen Discount Card, senior residents can enjoy discounts or even free admission to school programs including musical performances, sporting events, and even lunch in the cafeteria.”
The Premier Citizen Discount Card is free and offers great discounts on school activities and school merchandise including:
- Free admission to all school-sponsored activities* including concerts and athletic events.
- Due to fees charged to schools for licensing of performance rights, admission to plays is not free, but lower priced tickets are available for seniors.
- Discounts on select Community Education classes.
- 10% discount on merchandise sold at school stores. (limit 4 items per year)
Participation in school lunch programs at reduced prices. Reduced price is 10% discount on the total purchase. (Seniors must contact the school in advance to participate.)
“Community members will be proud of the accomplishments of the young people in their neighborhood,” Maleyko added. “We hope that everyone over the age of 60 will pick up a Premier Citizen Discount Card and take advantage of the free admission and discounts to have an entertaining or informative experience in the Dearborn Public Schools.”
