CBS4: Superintendent In Aurora Thanks Voters As Ground Is Broken On New STEM School

Story excerpt:

"Aurora Public Schools is building a new STEM school for preschool through eighth grade students. The district broke ground Wednesday in the Harmony subdivision on Aurora’s far east side.

The school is funded by a $300 million bond program approved by voters in 2016. The district’s superintendent, Rico Munn, gave voters a round of applause for their support at the groundbreaking Wednesday.

Nadine Ritchotte will be the principal when the school opens. She was previously the principal at Jewell Elementary School.

Ritchotte spoke at the ceremony on the school’s educational priorities, including STEM education, hands-on learning and digital literacy."
