Award checks totaling $4,000 were presented today to students and sponsors of the Aledo Middle School and Aledo High School Robotics teams. Both campuses received checks for $2,000. Bell Helicopter sponsored the area-wide Mission Possible Design Challenge last school year.
Chas Marsh, Chief Engineer for Design Tools, said Bell Helicopter is committed to supporting STEM education programs in area schools. “It makes me especially proud that the school district where my children attended won the design competition in 2015. We are happy to support Aledo ISD schools in their robotics efforts,” he said.

The Texas Association for Pupil Transportation has awarded AISD Transportation Director Steve Bond with the highest level of professional certification – Certified Pupil Transportation Master Official. Bond attained the “Official” status in 2001, which was the highest level of achievement at the time. Once the Master level was created, Bond took additional classes to receive course credits to reach the Master Official level.
Mr. Bond is pictured here with AISD Trustee Forrest Collins.
TAPT Executive Secretary said, “The safety of Texas school children who ride yellow school buses to and from school each day depends on dedicated professionals like Mr. Bond. We appreciate the time and effort he expended to achieve this goal.” READ MORE.
I need to inform you of a concern the District is having with a company named B & G Innovations of Grand Prairie, TX. This company is soliciting advertising dollars for spirit merchandise using the Bearcat Logo. The District has been in touch with this company on two occasions and has directed them to cease-and-desist in using our logo without the District’s consent. There is no business relationship between Aledo ISD and B & G Innovations. We have, through legal counsel, directed them to cease making these representations.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know at email@example.com.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
