Program tonight

The special services department of the Aurora schools has scheduled a parents communication forum for tonight (Jan. 11) at 7:30 at Miller School.

The focus is on Positive Behavior Intervention Supports and social/emotional development in early childhood/ preschool. Ideas for home and school will be discussed.

The presentation and discussion will take place with staff members from Miller School's integrated preschool.

Bowling to begin

Aurora High's bowling club will begin sessions Jan. 18 for 10 weeks on Wednesdays. Cost is $65. Contact Steve Horvath or Brian Pichola for signup forms, which are due with payment by Jan. 13.

Harmon School's bowling club starts Jan. 12, and the cost is $30 for 5 weeks. Transportation is provided from Harmon to Roseland Lanes. Students must have their own transportation home at 4:30 p.m.. Permission slips are in the main office and at lunch. Signup is limited to the first 50 students, and payment must accompany permission slips. For details, see Ginger Biales.

Track conditioning began Jan. 10 at the high school, and athletes are running outside. They should be prepared with multiple layers, hats, gloves and whatever is needed to keep warm. An extra pair of socks is a good idea in case it is wet that day. Athletes meet daily at 2:50 p.m. by the stairs near the guidance office. For information, coach Chris Radtke in Room 119.

Boxtops collected

During the month of January, boxtops contests are under way for grades K to 8 in the Aurora schools. Elementary school students can turn boxtops in at each school office. Harmon students can turn box tops into their homeroom teacher or the office with their name and homeroom attached. Boxtops are always collected during the school year at all school building offices and at Aurora Memorial Library.
