Don’t Miss the APS Back to School Kickoff on Aug. 4!

Aurora Public Schools is excited to host our 11th annual Back to School Kickoff to celebrate the beginning of the 2018-19 school year! APS students and families will receive free goodies, food and entertainment. This is an event you won’t want to miss.

Join us Saturday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Town Center at Aurora.

Free backpacks and school supplies will be provided to APS students while supplies last. The event is also a great opportunity to meet school staff, explore tons of resources and register your child for school.

Low- or no-cost immunizations will be available for children two months to 18 years old. Please be sure to bring your child’s shot records.

We are looking for volunteers to help from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.! If you are interested in supporting this important event and sharing in the fun, please contact Barbara Chapman at  bgchapman@aurorak12.org or 303.365.5819 ext. 28948.

Holding strong to the belief that families are our partners in education, we can’t wait to connect with families from every school across the district.

We hope to see you there!
