“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”
Margaret Fuller, American journalist and rights advocate

We believe the students at Aurora Charter School in Minneapolis, like all students, deserve the best education to lead them on a path toward the most productive, successful lives possible. A critical foundation to that success is having the ability to read—and having access to excellent books and reading material.
With that in mind, we are gathering donations to build a library for Aurora Charter School. We invite you to be a part of this life-changing project.

Environmental Education

Dear families,

Last week our Kindergarteners had the opportunity to go to the Maplewood Nature Center where they took an outdoor walk and learned a lot about the environment, nature and the species that live in our state.
We are committed to the environmental education and ecological awareness of our students.

Emiliano Zapata's grandson

Hello families,

Yesterday our students had the opportunity to have a conversation with Emiliano Zapata's grandson. Mr. Manuel Manrique Zapata was telling us a bit of his grandfather's story and the students had time to ask questions.
Without a doubt it is a great pride to be able to offer this opportunity to our community of Aurora.
