The Aledo Children’s AdvoCats Angel Project 2016 is now underway, and Angel Project volunteers are vital to its success. Angel Project organizes Christmas gifts for qualified Aledo ISD students and siblings who reside in the same home. 438 children from over 185 families had a very Merry Christmas last year because of our generous community volunteers!
We would greatly appreciate your assistance with this year’s Angel Project. There are two ways to help: be a shopper, and adopt one or more children (child’s wish list is provided) or give a monetary donation to help where needed. Download a Shopper/Donation form here. Or visit our website at www.aledoadvocats.com/programs or contact Amanda delMas at email@example.com to volunteer, sign-up to adopt an angel or donate. Read more.
The first brown-bag luncheon of the year, held at Stuard Elementary, included a recap of the previous evening’s board discussion regarding Aledo ISD elementary No. 5. The schedule for determining attendance zones was also reviewed, along with long-term plans for the district.
Dr. Citty reiterated that the newest campus will open in August 2017. At that time, current fourth-graders will continue through their fifth-grade year at an elementary campus. This means McAnally Intermediate School will be a sixth-grade-only campus for school year 2017-18. In essence, next year Aledo ISD will go from four K-4th-grade campuses to five K-5th-grade campuses.
