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.

Dearborn Public Schools residents over the age of 60 can stop in to any Dearborn Public School or the Administration Building to pick up this year’s 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.”

Dearborn Schools Offers Summer Adventure Club/Camp for Ages 3-12

The Dearborn Public Schools is now enrolling children ages 3 (toilet learned) to 12 for the fun-filled Summer Adventure Club/Camp program that runs June 21-Aug. 18, 2017.

The Summer Adventure Club/Camp offers children an exciting variety of activities such as daily swimming, science activities, music, life skills, arts and crafts, dance, team building, and weekly field trips.

The program will be held at Snow Elementary School, 2000 Street, Dearborn MI 48124.

This year’s theme is “Our Heroes!” with weekly themes being:
June 21 – 23 Who is a Hero?
June 26 – 30 Heroes of the Past
July 3 – 7 Teacher Heroes
July 10 – 14 Law Enforcement Heroes
July 17 – 21 Fire Fighter/EMT Heroes
July 24 – 28 Medical Professional Heroes
July 31-Aug 4 Armed Forces Heroes
August 7-11 Four Legged Heroes
August 14 – 18 Who is YOUR Hero?

This is a great program for busy families because children may attend less than five days per week, instead of the full week required by most summer day camp programs. A minimum attendance of three days per week for at least four weeks is required (12 days).

There is a $35 registration fee for the first child and $15 for each additional child.

Preschool, School Age, and Middle School children:
$185 weekly less than 9 hours* (includes field trip admissions; $6-8 bus/fuel surcharges additional)
$200 weekly more than 9 hours* (includes field trip admissions; $6-8 bus/fuel surcharges additional)

Daily rates will be charged at $40 for 9 hours or less, and $43 for over 9 hours. Sibling discounts of 10% are given for each additional child. All paperwork is due 48 hours before first day of attendance.

For more information on this program or any of the paid preschool programs offered by the Dearborn Public Schools please contact the Early Childhood Program Office at (313) 827-8350 or (313) 827-6260.
