If your child is absent from school then please contact the front office, send an email, or fax documentation of the absence to the school on the day of the absence. A parent note will also be accepted as documentation for the absence as long as it is turned in within five days of the absence (absence date included in the five day count). Medical notes are also accepted as documentation for any absence. If we do not receive notification from the parent then an automated calling system will be used to remind the parent/guardian to send the documentation to the school. The campus will document in its attendance records for the student whether the absence is considered by the district to be excused or unexcused.
Request for Legos
Seventh grade ELA is in search of Legos to help make a "connection" with sentence structure. If you have any Legos you would like to donate, please drop them off in the containers by the 7th grade ELA teachers' rooms in the 500 hallway on Open House night.
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.
