AHS Presents First-Time Certified Nursing Assistant Grads
During the 2015-2016 school year, Aledo ISD partnered with Weatherford College to offer a Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) training program for high-school students. The C.N.A. program is one component of the overall health science program students can elect as a pathway for earning high school graduation credit. Students participating in this program may receive a C.N.A. certification by completing the course and passing the State test for C.N.A.s. Aledo ISD is proud to report that participants in the inaugural year of the C.N.A. program set the bar high for future students with a 100-percent passing rate for the State test.

You, too, can have your summer trip become a Bearcat memory by taking an Aledo flag with you. We would like to show just how far the reach of Bearcat Nation is when our fans, friends and family take off for the summer. Check back here throughout the summer to see where our Bearcats have been.
Call Amy Slape (817-441-8327) at the Aledo ISD Administration Building front office and reserve a Bearcat flag. Then pick it up before you leave. When you get back home, just bring the flag back for someone else to use. Then, send us a photo so we can track our Bearcats! Email firstname.lastname@example.org your flag photo and we’ll connect the dots to see where our Bearcats spent the summer. Safe and happy travels!
