Kathia Madera is our 8th Grade Mustang of the Quarter at Aurora Hills! She was originally nominated by Ms. Hobein, though Mrs. Bill and Mrs. Avendano-Curiel also spoke up in support of her nomination. In addition to receiving all 3’s and 4’s for work habit scores in all her classes, she is also Advanced in Social Studies, Orchestra, Science and Visual Art. She is very principled in her classes “monitoring her own growth and behavior”. Kathia “has a kind heart, and her integrity and character stand out among all the rest.
Our 7th grade Mustang of the Quarter at Aurora Hills is Irina Amouzou! Irina caught the eye of Ms. Pedersen in Spanish class and also wowed Mrs. Griego for “upping her game in science”. Mrs. Pearcey is proud to see Irina develop the skill of valuing and prioritizing her time and politely saying no sometimes. Irina not only earned all 3’s and 4’s for her work habit grades in quarter 3, but she is also Advanced in Social Studies, Orchestra and Science. Her Orchestra teacher, Ms. Hobein, added that Irina “inspires others with her work ethic, good humor and patience with herself and others.”

Aurora Public Schools is now using School Messenger as the automated messaging system to communicate with parents
and staff. This is the messaging system that APS and your school will use to contact you about emergencies, student attendance and other important information.
Following are a few helpful facts and tips about SchoolMessenger:
• Phone messages that APS schools and offices send you through SchoolMessenger may contain “Aurora Public
Schools” in the information you see on your phone’s caller ID panel.
• When you receive a SchoolMessenger call, you will see your school’s phone number or the APS central
phone number, 303-326-2500, on your phone’s caller ID panel.
• If you provided your email address to APS during the registration process, you will receive an email message
notifying you about a call. The email will also include a link to allow you to listen to the voice message.
• Emails that APS schools and offices send you through SchoolMessenger may contain “SchoolMessenger” in the
“sender” name. Please do not block these messages or direct them to spam filters or junk mail.
• If you receive an email from School Messenger, please do not reply to that email. If you have questions or concern regarding the email, please contact your child’s school.
To ensure that you receive important calls and messages from your school and the district, please provide any updated contact information to your school.
