School and Community Come Together

Aurora Hills Middle School has taken going back to school to a whole new level. Aurora Hills has teamed up with the Aurora Symphony to encourage parental and community involvement and welcome in the new school year at a community festival on Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This annual event will feature food, games and live music from the Aurora Symphony Orchestra and other local bands. Local businesses and community organizations, including Aurora Parks and Recreation, will have booths set up to provide information about community involvement opportunities.

This year organizers expect a big crowd. More than 1,000 students, parents and community members attended the event last year. "The community festival is designed to strengthen the bond between our school and community," Roy Smith, Aurora Hills parent liaison said.

Aurora Hills parent Mark Burgess attended the festival last year. "The festival is a great opportunity to meet Aurora Hills' staff, members of the business community and other parents," Burgess said. "The food was great and the interaction with others was even greater."

The event will be held at Aurora Hills Middle School located at 1009 S. Uvalda St.
