Aurora Community Celebrates Mrachek Groundbreaking

Mrachek Groundbreaking 05More than 150 parents, staff and community members gathered recently to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new Mrachek Middle School. 

During the celebration, Principal Michelle Davis unveiled a new logo and mascot for the school.  When the new building opens in the fall of 2018, students will be members of the Mrachek Middle School Titans community.

In November 2016, Aurora voters approved a $300 million bond program that includes funding to replace the existing school with a new building. In addition to bond funds, APS will receive a grant of up to $16 million toward the construction of Mrachek from the Colorado Department of Education's Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) Program.
