WHO ARE DREAMers?  DREAMers are students who were brought to the country at an early age without documentation but have assimilated to U.S. culture and have been educated by U.S. school systems.  As a result, these individuals are ineligible for Federal or State financial aid.  The only way these students can afford college is through scholarship opportunities such as this one!

Metropolitan State University of Denver is proud to be a Partner College of TheDream.US!  TheDream.US provides scholarship of up to $25,000 to DREAMers to help cover the cost of tuition and fees, books, supplies, and transportation for a two-year or four-year degree at Partner Colleges.  As a Partner College, DREAMers are able to attend our university using the scholarship funds provided by TheDream.US.

The application is open to first-time college students or community college graduates only.  We will be holding information and application support days throughout the next few weeks.  The attached flyer and link below provide additional information regarding scholarship requirements and scheduled application support days.

Personal Project Presentation – IB Learner Profile Trait

December - Balanced                                                  

They understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.

Sophomores gathered in the auditorium to be part of a presentation on the MYP personal project, hear about AP digital badges, and innovation. Students can earn digital badges while working on the personal project and use those credentials when applying for jobs. We also were reminded that Gateway has an Innovation lab right here on campus for students to “play” with their ideas and figure out how things work. The highlight of the presentation was from Dr. Violeta Garcia, who made it from Ecuador to South Central LA to Colorado to become a leader in STEM innovation and design across the United States. Her powerful story showed that anyone, who puts their mind and heart into their dream  and idea can make it a reality. The presentation gave suggestions and supports around student’s future and their MYP personal project.

Thank You Aurora Voters

aps-3c-logoThank you Aurora Voters for approving ballot measure 3C


I am happy to report that APS voters approved ballot measure 3C, our $300 million bond. On behalf of our Board of Education, students, parents and staff, I would like to thank voters for their support. Our bond program will fund facility, technology and security improvements at every APS school and benefit every student.

We could not have accomplished this victory without the hard work of staff, parents and community members. I would like to extend a special thank you to the Aurora Citizens for Excellent Schools campaign committee, led by William Stuart and John Britz, for their dedication to the success of Aurora Public Schools.   

We are planning to schedule some projects to begin this school year, including the start of construction on our new Mrachek Middle School. For a full list of projects please visit: http://bond.aurorak12.org/projects/. As we move forward with projects, we will provide regular status updates to community members and staff. 

The APS bond program will make a difference at every school and help us in achieving our mission to increase academic achievement and opportunities for all students.

Thank you again for your support and dedication.
