Ninth Grade News

August 14, 2020

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I am Carolyn Ansley, the principal of Daniel Ninth Grade Campus. I would like to extend a special welcome to all the new families joining Aledo ISD this year and welcome back our returning families as well. The teachers, staff, and I are all so excited to meet our Freshmen students and partner with our parents this school year. We have all been working diligently to prepare for our students' return to learning whether that is on campus or remotely from home. We will communicate more information early next week about navigating our campus and procedural details. We are looking forward to a great school year! Here's to the start of something great!
