Greetings Everyone!

The school year is well underway and so is another year of e3 –“Your Staff Newsletter.”

e3 is a staff newsletter the Communications Office sends to all 2,300 staff members in the Dearborn Public Schools. New this year, e3 is coming to you as a Google document. The format is new, but inside this issue you’ll find the same helpful sorts of information you’ve seen in past issues of e3.

If you are new the District, or you just never clicked on the e3 links we’ve sent in the past, check it out! You’ll find important news, highlights of school activities, fun photos, and links to helpful resources and flyers about District events and community activities that may interest you, your students or your school community. We also feature classified ads in e3, your chance to sell “gently used items” you may no longer need.

More great stuff from the Communications Office… You may notice that links in the e3 sometimes lead to flyers posted in our blog. Check out the blog any time for new info or “subscribe” and you’ll automatically get a notice in your email box every Friday linking you the news and information we’ve posted throughout the week. Sign up at: blog

e3 is really about our District staff, so we encourage you to send items of interest to us via e-mail. You can send them directly to e3 Editor Leslie Herrick, or to our general communications email box at

Schools Welcome Senior Citizens:  Premier Citizen Discount Cards Available

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.”
