Area senior citizens are invited to participate in the Lee’s Summit R-7 community-wide Senior Citizens’ School Tour, scheduled from 7:45 to 9:30 a.m. Oct. 5 at the district’s new Missouri Innovation Campus. The tour is free although space is limited and reservations are required. Deadline to sign up is Sept. 28.

The event includes a tour of the one-of-a-kind school as well as breakfast. Those attending are asked to arrive at the school a few minutes before 7:45 a.m. Participants must have the ability to do some walking within the school and are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes. Several rest breaks will be provided.

The Missouri Innovation Campus has received national attention for reshaping the way students experience education. The new facility is the result of a unique partnership with the University of Central Missouri and Lee’s Summit R-7.

To make a reservation or for more information, contact the R-7 Communications Department at (816) 986-1014 or e-mail  Janie Rohlfing by Sept. 28.
