Julie Choate Higher Education Fund

With the help of Aledo ISD parents, a fund called the Julie Choate Higher Education Fund has been set up through the district as a college fund for Julie’s children Ben and Brittin. The goal is to allow both children to go to college and graduate debt free.100% of the donations will first go toward the college fund for Ben and Brittin. 

Any remaining funds will be put toward a yearly scholarship to an Aledo ISD senior so that we can continue to promote Julie’s legacy and love for learning in a deserving Bearcat. 

Please donate to the Julie Choate Higher Education Fund here

School Supplies

Aledo PTO sold and distributed over 2700 boxes of school supplies! Every year, the Aledo PTO gives parents the opportunity to purchase school supply packs for convenience, as we know how hectic of a time the start of school can be for families.  This year, we sold and distributed over 2700 packs of school supplies!  

THANK YOU to all of our volunteers for making this service a success!

Aledo PTO is looking for a ninth grade parent to serve as the Daniel Ninth Grade Center Campus Representative for the 2020-2021 school year. We also have some committee chair positions still available for this school year.
