Go for the Gold!
We often hear the phrase “Go for the Gold” which we know means to go for the best. Here in Marysville many seniors are going for the gold in another way.
In September 2013, Marysville School District superintendent, Dr. Becky Berg, launched the new Marysville Gold Card for eligible senior citizens.
The Marysville School District’s Gold Card holders will have access to all school district-sponsored home athletic and performing arts events at no cost to them, sign up to volunteer in schools, and receive publications from the school district.
The Marysville School District honors and supports the senior citizens of our Marysville and Tulalip communities and supports their social and civic engagement by encouraging them to become involved in our schools and school events. We are offering a special opportunity to invite our communities’ eligible senior citizens to be a part of our Marysville “Gold Card” membership. Thank you to Greg Erickson, Athletic Director, for making this possible for so many.
To make the card more useful, the user’s photo and name will be included on the card as a form of identification for accessing school and district events.
“Our senior citizen neighbors helped build this community and our schools – it’s only right that we give back and honor them in this way,” says Dr. Berg.
Eligible seniors citizens (age 65 and older) can apply for their Gold Card by visiting the Marysville School District office located at 4220 80th Street NE (just two blocks east off of State at the corner of 80th and State Street). Applications may also be completed online at www.msvl.k12.wa.us. Join us today!
