The City of Aurora recently held a ceremony to recognize hundreds of Aurora Public Schools students as "Aurora Scholars" for the positive contributions they have made in their communities and schools. The annual event, now in its tenth year, was created to bring city officials, school district staff, and families to honor the achievements of Aurora’s future leaders.
One teacher-nominated student from each grade level (first through 12th) at every school in Aurora was recognized. Students received certificates and gifts donated by the community.
In APS, we believe every student has unique abilities that we must recognize and engage. Bravo to the 2018 APS Aurora Scholars from Montview Elementary School for being extraordinary leaders.
