BACK TO SCHOOL DANCE
On Friday, September 20, we will host our Back to School Dance from 7:00-9:00 in the Bearcat Den. Wristbands will be sold for $5.00 on Thursday and Friday during lunches. Wristbands at the door will be $7.00. Only AMS students may attend the dance, and all students must adhere to the AMS dress code. AMS faculty and staff will be chaperoning the dance.
To assist with traffic flow, Aledo ISD police officers will be directing traffic. When picking up your student, you must enter at Taylor Court. All students will be picked up in our normal Parent Pick-Up loading area. Please follow the traffic directives of the officers. For safety reasons, we require that all students be picked up from the loading area. We will not allow students to walk to Vandagriff, the stadium, across 1187, etc.
Please contact Mandy Musselwhite with any questions or concerns.
All 7th and 8th grade volleyball games will be played at the Aledo High School gyms.
2019-2020 School Year Registration for Current AISD Students
Parents, please make sure that you have an active Parent Portal account with Aledo ISD. This August, parents will be required to register their child for the upcoming school year through their parent portal account before the student receives their class schedule. If you need the parent portal account number for your child then please contact the school and we will be able to email the parent portal ID number to you.
The following information will be updated: registration information, emergency contacts, student directory information release, falsification of documents and identity verification, student residency questionnaire, FERPA and directory information notice, student media release, and military-connected student data. If you have any questions then please contact the school.
A Poet (and now we know it)
by Olivia Fowler
Jillian Thornburg, a 12-year-old seventh grader at Aledo Middle School, likes to play video games--just a normal pre-teen, right? Right, except that Jillian is also a published author. This winter, Jillian's poem, "Colored Waterfalls" was published after placing in the Creative Communications poetry contest. Her poem is about the magic of nature and how rare it is to experience its fantasy. Jillian wants everyone to know, "Anyone can do anything. As long as you are confident and try, you can do anything. Anyone can be published." Congratulations, Jillian--that's how to be the difference.
Spelling Bee Winners
This year's spelling bee was the longest in recent school history. The students went 36 rounds, exhausting all study words and moving onto additional words. Luke Shelton was the winner with the championship word, disembark. Ibrahim Choudhry was the runner-up. Congratulations to all who participated.
