Premier Citizens Cards provide older district residents with free admission to most home sports

Premier Citizen card with a 2025 expiration date

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. 

District residents over the age of 60 can stop in to any Dearborn Public School or the Administration Building, 18700 Audette St., to pick up this year’s Premier Citizen Discount Card.  (A few elementary schools are still undergoing massive HVAC work and will not be open to the public until school starts on Aug. 28, 2023.)  Residents who picked up cards in the last two years will notice those cards expire on Sept. 30, 2023.  

“Many local residents in the over 60 crowd are Dearborn Public Schools alumni, parents of former students or grandparents to current students. We are happy to welcome them back to school,” notes Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Maleyko. “With the Premier Citizen Discount Card, senior residents can enjoy discounts or free admission to school programs, including home sporting events and musical performances.”  

The Premier Citizen Discount Card is free and offers great discounts on school activities and school merchandise including: 

  • Free admission to most school-sponsored activities including concerts and athletic events at the home school.  Discounted tickets are available for plays and musicals, which are not free because schools must pay for performance licenses.
  • Discounts on select Community Education classes.
  • 10% discount on merchandise sold at school stores. (Limit four items per year.)

“Community members will be proud of the accomplishments of the young people in their neighborhood,” Dr. 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.”
