Aledo Education Foundation Executive Director Shawn Callaway presented a framed picture to the Aledo ISD Community Partners in appreciation of their continued support and the success of the PTO food drive. The PTO collected twice as much food as they did last year! We appreciate all the Community Partners that assisted with the food drive. It was an amazing success and will benefit our neighbors in need for several months to come.
The next Community Partners meeting is Friday, Jan. 8, at 9:30 a.m. in the Aledo ISD Administration Building.
Pictured left to right are Shawn Callaway, Community Partner Debbie Minco of Kwik Kar Lube & Tune, and Aledo ISD CFO Earl Husfeld.
Fifteen members of the Aledo High School chapters of FBLA and NHS gathered together to wrap and stuff shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. More than 100 boxes were prepared!

Aledo FFA Member Ashley Melton earned the honors of Champion American Steer at the Fall Classic in Waco. Ashley is one of few people to win two breeds in back-to-back years. In 2014, she had the Champion Shorthorn steer who went on to win the Lightweights division at Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Ashley hopes that this year’s steer, named Pinto, can do big things as well!
The kids at Vandagriff Elementary were so excited to see the BIG Bearcats in their classroom last week! Teacher Audra Ellerbusch says, "Thank you for encouraging the big guys to invest in the little guys.They just don't know how much they are looked up to in this community!" Keep up the good work! (See more photos on the AISD facebook page.)
In third-grade social studies, students learn about heroes and their impact on the community. In order to bring this to a personal level for students, Coder Elementary is having a Local Hero Campaign. We are asking people to nominate individuals in Aledo, Willow Park and surrounding communities. The third-graders have defined heroes as those who do something to make a difference for others, or who contribute to positive change.
To nominate a local hero, please follow this link. Thanks for your interest in helping our third-graders know some of Aledo ISD’s own local heroes!
