Senior Citizens Tour Trailridge Elementary

Several area senior citizens returned to elementary school as part of a special program hosted by the Lee's Summit R-7 School District. Through the district's Senior Citizens' School Tour program, the local residents visited Trailridge Elementary.

The event included a tour of the elementary building, including stops in a kindergarten classroom, robotics program area, art room and computer lab as well as a performance by first-graders. The senior citizens had the opportunity to talk to Trailridge Student Council members during lunch.

Since the district's Senior Citizens' School Tours began in 2007, close to 375 local seniors have participated in the program. The opportunities are provided to seniors two times each school year and are free to participants

The tours for senior citizens are part of the R-7 School District's Comprehensive School Improvement Plan and were recommended by a community team. Plans call for a fall 2014 tour.
