The following items are taken from the News from Miller and Craddock Schools newsletter.
Families can support the Aurora schools by signing up for Heinen's ABC program.
Residents should visit www.heinensrewards.com and select a school in their profile. Aurora schools get 1 percent of eligible purchases donated in cash. Last year, Aurora received more than $2,100 for field trips and classroom equipment.
The program runs until April 2014. Residents must re-select a school each year. For further details, call 1-855-475-2300 ext. 2337.
