ANGLETON ISD IN THE NEWS
The Angleton varsity football team is undefeated with a 6-0 record. Senior B. J. Foster has been selected to play in the All American game in Florida in January.
The Angleton Varsity Treble choir won a Mark of Excellence award from the Foundation of Music Education, coming in Number One out of 270 entries in a national contest.

In support of the national Giving Tuesday initiative, the Alumni Association will be hosting a food drive in November to support a project started by AISD and the Angleton Education Foundation to assist students outside the classroom.
To better meet immediate needs of students, AISD has set up a storage center at the CATS Academy (old Westside campus) on Walker. Social workers assisting Angleton students use the center to get food, clothing and school supplies as needed.
Donations of non-perishable items will be taken at the History Center from noon until 5 p.m. every Wednesday throughout November and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Giving Tuesday on November 28.
Donations of school supplies will also be accepted. Any cash or online donations will be used to purchase additional supplies.
This is the second year for the Alumni Association to participate in the Giving Tuesday initiative.
