The Aurora Public Schools 10th annual Back to School Kickoff was a blast! Thousands of APS students, families, staff and community members gathered at the Town Center at Aurora to get the 2017-18 school year started off right.
Attendees enjoyed good food, free school supplies and helpful resources. Families had an opportunity to connect one-on-one with school staff and take advantage of low- to no-cost immunizations. To add more fun to the mix, school and community leaders volunteered to sit in the hot seat of a dunk tank.
APS also debuted the district’s interactive map! Featuring promotional school videos, demographics and performance data, this awesome tool will be a valuable community resource.
The Back to School Kickoff is a wonderful example of our APS 2020: Shaping the Future strategic plan core belief that community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families.
