Aledo ISD Names Principal for Walsh Elementary

The Aledo ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved Mrs. Sheri Coll as the new principal for Mary D. & F. Howard Walsh Elementary School, which opens in August 2017.
Mrs. Coll began her teaching career in Tucson, Ariz., where she taught kindergarten. She then moved to the Douglas County School District, near Denver, where she taught third, fourth and fifth grades. Mrs. Coll was promoted to elementary- and then middle-school assistant principal in the Douglas County District, where she served in these roles for six years. She spent the last six years as the principal at Summit View Elementary School where she and her team created a successful 21st Century Innovative School that has ranked in the top 10-percent in state test scores. A very recent accolade/honor is that Summit View Elementary School was named a 2017 John Irwin Schools of Excellence Award recipient.

Purple Up! for Military Kids April 21

April is the month of the Military Child, providing an opportunity to recognize and honor the service of our youngest heroes, military children. Help us turn Aledo ISD PURPLE on April 21 as we Purple Up! for Military Kids! Wearing purple is a very visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force blue. Be creative….the goal is for military youth to see they have our thanks and support!

Coder Tech Ninjas Teach Techniques to Trustees
The March AISD Board of Trustees meeting highlighted some of Coder Elementary School’s Tech Ninjas who showed off their technology skills to board members. This year, each teacher from Coder selected one of their students to be the Tech Ninja for their class. Tech Ninjas meet on a monthly basis and learn troubleshooting tips for devices used in the classroom. They are the leader in the classroom when technology problems arise. Tech Ninjas also learn how to use new applications, and take what they have learned back to their classroom and teach their fellow classmates. It was a delightful demonstration of how these little learners know their skills. Read more. See more photos on the AISD Facebook page.
