District Announcements
PTO Starts Year with High Attendance


More than 30 parents came to the kickoff meeting of Aledo PTO, where President Jennifer Taylor outlined goals for the new school year. Fundraising and service are primary objectives for the organization so that every student in the district benefits. Aledo PTO also works hand in hand with the Aledo Education Foundation to supplement funds, when possible, to facilitate the foundation’s grant funding.

The organization just wrapped up its largest service project, which consisted of nearly 3,000 packets of school supplies being provided for students in grades K-8. This is a wonderful and convenient service for Aledo ISD parents and students.

PTO now moves on to two major fall goals – the fall fundraiser of catalog sales for elementary and intermediate schools; and the fall food drive, which begins in November for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

“Now is the time to join,” said President Taylor. “The Aledo PTO website (aledopto.org) makes it easy. Plus, READ MORE.

Pick Up Your Season Football Passes

Reserved Varsity Football Season Passes are here! You can pick yours up in the Bearcat Store at the AISD Administration Building, located at 1008 Bailey Ranch Rd. 

Bearcat Store Hours: weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  If you are unable to come during these times you may allow someone else to pick up your passes by sending written permission. The individual picking the season pass packet up must be the person whose name the pass is registered to, unless written permission is provided. Please note:  Due to a change in the system, everyone will need to pick up a new season pass card this year. Your card from last year will not allow you entrance to the stadium, as previously planned. Also, if you prefer, you may choose paper tickets instead of the plastic card. Just let us know that you would like that substitution when you pick up your passes.

Remaining 2016 season passes will go on sale Aug. 24. These must be purchased in person at Bearcat Store.

Get ready for a great Bearcat Season!
