The APS Welcome Center recently hosted its semi-annual International Family Engagement Event (IFEE). This event focuses on providing resources for immigrant or refugee students and their families who have arrived in the United States in the past six months.
Due to the pandemic, the IFEE was held as a drive-thru event at the district administration building next to Aurora Central High School. Families were able to pick up free clothing, books, educational supplies, toys, sports activity sets and crafts. They could also obtain shoes for children and adults through a partner organization called Wholly Kicks.
Approximately 90 newcomer families were able to benefit from this wonderful event. Way to go APS Welcome Center!
