At the September 13th meeting, the LPS Board of Education honored members of the district's Senior Citizens Tax Rebate Program who are celebrating 10-year and 20-year anniversaries with the program. Family and friends were in attendance, as well.
The LPS Senior Citizens Tax Rebate Program is one of the first of its kind in the nation. It reduces participants’ portion of property tax to LPS in exchange for volunteer hours in our schools. LPS benefits greatly from volunteering senior citizens; they give generously beyond their required hours and add perspective, history and a lifetime of experience to the educational experience of LPS students.
Thank you, senior volunteers, for your continued support of our students, teachers and schools!
