Concerns about safety and student computer use are not new to parents or school districts. In an effort to increase the safety of our community, Aledo ISD will host a representative from the U.S. Department of Justice to address Internet Safety on Tuesday, Sept. 21. The presentation is in the Aledo High School Distance Learning Lab at 6 p.m.
This event is part of Aledo’s second annual “CyberSmart Week.” Each day during the week, Sept. 20-24, students will be given instruction on issues related to safe, ethical, and successful computer use. The nonprofit www.Cybersmart.org Web site will form the basis of this instruction. It provides grade-level appropriate information in five areas:
S - Safety and Security Online
M - Manners, Cyberbullying, and Ethics

No. 2 Aledo stops No. 1 Lake Travis' 48-game win streak with 14-10 victory
By Tony Eierdam
For the first time in 49 games, the Lake Travis Cavaliers can now put a mark in the loss column thanks to the Aledo Bearcats.
The Bearcats, who can now lay claim as the best team in Class 4A, defeated the Div. I, 4A Champions 14-10 Friday night with the support of an Aledo crowd that filled up the entire visitor's side - with the addition of three sets of portable bleachers - at Lake Travis High School's Cavalier Stadium.
The Bearcats took the lead for good in the fourth quarter when Johnathan Gray scored from a yard out on 4th and goal with six minutes remaining in the contest.
Beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Aledo ISD will provide shuttles for this week's football game against Weatherford High School. Due to the expected overflow amount of traffic, buses will run between Willow Park Baptist Church and Bearcat Stadium, and between Aledo United Methodist Church and Bearcat Stadium.
Pick-up and drop-off schedules will hold true for both Willow Park Baptist Church, located at 129 S. Ranch House Road in Aledo, and Aledo United Methodist Church, at 313 Pecan St.
