Elementary Parents: We do realize that there are several issues with the emails sent out concerning homeroom teacher assignments. This is our first year trying this system and we are working on correcting the errors. Please bare with us! We will be busy with a summer school field trip tomorrow, so we will try sending out emails again on Friday. #SoSorry

Correction: A system setting caused the name of the preschool teacher to be left off of all emails to parents. Preschool parents should have already received a letter from our preschool teacher. Preschool will be taught by Mrs. Tina Dern this year with the help of Ms. Lisa Willard who will serve as the Classroom Para.

National Beta is proud to announce Alton High School as a 2018-2019 National School of Distinction and Merit. The School of Distinction Award is an honor for Beta Chapters striving towards academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others. With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership for the current school year. The School of Merit Award is designed to award those schools that offer Beta membership to all eligible grades levels. Award recipients received a National Beta School of Distinction banner to proudly display as a symbol of their accomplishment. In addition, National Beta School of Distinction recipients will be publicized at the 2019 National Beta Convention in Oklahoma City, OK this June. “This prestigious honor is a true indication of Alton School’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements,” said National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer, Bobby Hart. In addition to the two club awards from National Beta, three Alton High School Beta students won plaques in their competitive divisions. At state convention, Beta holds competitions in different school subjects. Each club can enter one student to compete in each grade level for one school subject. Freshman Jace Reese won third place in math, and senior Melany Woods won third place in photography, and senior Kelsie Orr won first place in Agriscience. These three students will now travel to National Beta Convention to compete with other students from the United States. Additionally, senior Mikayla Hood won a scholarship to Missouri State University in Springfield. About National Beta: National Beta is the largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization in America. Since its beginnings in 1934, National Beta has been committed to providing students with a positive experience in a supportive manner in grades 4-12.

This month our teacher spotlight shines on Ms. Melissa Childers. Ms. Melissa works as a Paraprofessional in the Special Education Department at Alton Elementary School. She also drives a bus for the district. Ms. Melissa is one of the most caring individuals you will ever meet! She loves the children that she serves as her own. She goes above and beyond to improve the lives of our little Comets. She even uses her own money to pay for things like field trip fees for students who need help coming up with the money! She would not even hesitate to take a child in need into her own home, and voices that she wishes she could do this on a regular basis. Ms. Melissa truly has a heart of gold. She cares about our kiddos. When their hearts break, her heart breaks. She is truly a guardian angel for so many of our sweet kiddoes. She is a beautiful person on the inside and out. She is also such a hard worker! We are so very proud to call Ms. Melissa a Comet! Thank you for all you do for our students! #CometPride #BlessedWithTheBest #AltonElem

Dear Mrs. Walsh, I have some snack sacks ready for the children, as well as a little project they might have some fun with. I made each student an "Encouragement Book" and I hope they'll write something kind to each of their classmates. If done with any thought, I think they'll find things they can really appreciate about what others recognize in them-- atleast that's my hope. Please share the attached minute science video that shows the effect of word frequency on water with the kids. I think it will blow their minds! It's amazing to think of the impact kind words have over water, much less a human that understands words! I've written a personal message in every book, and I would love it if you could do the same before we hand them out. Sincerely, Jennifer Wilson Ozark Equipment Company #CommunityPartners #AltonElem #CommunitySupport #BlessedWithTheBest #EncouragOneAnother

It's almost that time of year again! Ms. Watts' Human Anatomy classes are taking a trip to participate in the interactive Cadaver lab at St. Louis University. This is a great and even a once in a lifetime experience for some students. If you would like to help sponsor the cost of a student or students please feel free to contact Ms. Watts @ the High School (call or email, amandawatts@alton.k12.mo.us). The cost for the field trip is roughly $45 per student (including lunch and dinner costs). This is a lot for some families. Last year I was amazed and very appreciative of those that contributed. The lunch meal for the entire trip was paid for and many students were able to attend stress free due to the generosity of our community. Thank you again for all that you do for our students here at Alton High School.

In recognition of School Counselor’s Week, the Alton Elementary would like to take this time to honor our school counselor, Mrs. Willard. Mrs. Willard exemplifies love and compassion for our students in so many ways. She implements counseling lessons each week with our students, takes the time to listen to their individual needs and goes above and beyond to connect them with the necessary resources to support their daily needs at home and in school. Mrs. Willard has worked tirelessly to improve our school climate and culture through the establishment of Comets Who Care. Comets Who Care is a student led group who work to set an example for others and give back to our community. In addition to her many roles and responsibilities as the counselor, this year she has organized a clothing closet to fill clothing needs as they may arise and established a classroom partnership to grow our relationship with our community. Thank you to Mrs. Willard for all your hard work and dedication to our students and school!

This month our teacher spotlight sparkles on Mrs. Melissa Hufstedler. Mrs. Hufstedler has taught Music at Alton Elementary for 26 years. During this time, Mrs. Hufstedler has put together over 50 music programs that have sparked talent in children and made parents proud. She has instilled an appreciation and love for music within hundreds of students! Mrs. Hufstedler is one talented woman. There isn’t much that this lovely lady cannot do- from singing, to painting, to sewing, to playing the piano and more, the list is never ending. Mrs. Hufstedler is a hard worker. She puts everything she has into the music program at Alton Elementary and is always there to help others make their endeavors successful, adding a special touch to everything she is involved in. In addition, Mrs. Hufstedler always makes sure our students have what they need. If she finds out a student is doing without, she will personally make sure that the student's needs are met. In her spare time, Mrs. Hufstedler continues to touch the lives of others by teaching college courses at Missouri State University. She also gives private lessons to many aspiring pianists. Mrs. Hufstedler is an amazing role model for our students. Her presence truly makes our school a better place. Thanks for making Alton Elementary shine, Mrs. Hufstedler! *Thank you to the Alton Burger Palace for sponsoring our Teacher Spotlight Program each month. Mrs. Hufstedler received a $25 gift certificate from the Burger Palace.

This month, the teacher spotlight shines on Mrs. Adrian Clary. Mrs. Clary is one of our kindergarten teachers at #AltonElem. Mrs. Clary also serves as the Junior High Girls Basketball Coach and the High School Girls Assistant Basketball Coach. In the classroom, Mrs. Clary pushes her students to do their very best. Her classroom is a loving, inviting room filled with bright colors and learning adventures galore! All of Mrs. Clary’s students definitely walk out of kindergarten knowing that their teacher loves them very much! Mrs. Clary looks after her students. She is the first to notice when one of her students is in need or is simply having a rough day. Mrs. Clary also fights for her students to ensure that they have the love and support that they need to be successful. In addition, Mrs. Clary goes out of her way to provide unique experiences for her students, like trips to Shepherd’s View to read to residents. On the court, Mrs. Clary serves as an amazing role model to the girls that she coaches. She pours her heart and soul into her ball team. She works to develop positive relationships with her girls. She creates an environment that allows everyone on her team to feel like they are part of a family. Between teaching and coaching, Mrs. Clary truly pours everything she has into the Alton School District. Many days, she starts her morning with a 5 AM ball practice, teaches kindergarten all day, and then ends the day with an after school practice. It would be difficult to find an educator who works harder than her. We are so lucky to be able to call Mrs. Clary an Alton Comet. Thanks for all you do to make our school a better place, Mrs. Clary! You are appreciated! *Thank you to the Alton Burger Palace for sponsoring our monthly teacher spotlight! Each month, the winning teacher receives a $25 gift card from the Alton Burger Palace.

New Name and Cause for the Basketball Jamboree for 2018! Alton High School Beta Club is sponsoring the Red Out Games this year with a new color, red instead of pink, and a new charity. This year all funds will be raised for St. Judes Children's Hospital. T-shirts are $10.00. The money is due Wednesday November 7, (Your student should have come home yesterday with the order form). Due to scheduling conflicts the date had to be moved up giving us little time to get t-shirts designed, so that is the reason for the quick turn around in the orders forms due date.

Thanks to the Alton Burger Palace, each month a lucky member of our staff will be randomly selected to win supper for his or her family from the Alton Burger Palace! Thank you to Pamela and everyone at Alton Burger Palace for being so incredibly supportive of our school! This month's winner is Mrs. Annie Whitten! Mrs. Whitten teaches art at Alton Elementary. Mrs. Whitten is one of the most talented people that has ever existed! We are lucky enough to have an elementary school that is more beautiful than ever before because it is filled with her murals! Mrs. Whitten works hard to put on an incredible art show each spring as well. If you ask our students, Art class is one of the most beloved classrooms in the school! Mrs. Whitten is also an amazing resource for all of our teachers when it comes to giving classroom management or behavior modification advice. Our school is a better place because Mrs. Whitten graces our halls. Mrs. Whitten says her favorite part of working at Alton Elementary is how happy the kids are when they come to art class. We all love you Mrs. Whitten! Enjoy your free supper from the Alton Burger Palace! You deserve it!

We started our morning at Alton Elementary with an assembly. We plan to make monthly assemblies a routine part of our month throughout the school year. Each assembly will focus on a specific part of our Comet Matrix. Today, students focused on showing their Comet Pride by always being prepared. Students also learned about proper bathroom behavior. The classrooms who collected the most tickets for the month were announced as well. The assembly turned out to be lots of fun and a huge success! We look forward to our next assembly at the end of September!

Have you heard about our Cosmo Kid of the Day Program??? Each day in the elementary, students are rewarded with tickets for following the Comet Code (school rules). If a student chooses to, he or she may use a ticket to enter for a chance to be the Cosmo Kid of the Day. The two chosen students have their names announced during morning announcements and also get to ride around in the super cool seats pictured below for an entire day! The students are loving this opportunity! #EveryCometCounts #PBS #CometPride

All Alton Elementary students have now successfully completed Comet Boot Camp! Here at Alton Elementary, we decided to spend the first two days of school teaching students the rules in each setting of our school (playground, cafeteria, bathroom, hallway, bus, classroom). We know it is important for our school to have consistent rules for everyone- from preschool to 6th grade. We've also learned that when students learn the rules first, teachers can gain up to 30% more instructional time due to avoided behaviors and disruptions. We ended bootcamp with a celebratory assembly today where students showed what they had learned in a game of family feud! Students also learned about Comet tickets and how they can be rewarded for their positive behavior. Please take a minute this weekend to ask your child to teach you how to show Comet PRIDE!

On Sunday, March 25, 2018 the Alton R-IV campus had a vandalism event involving the theft of a school bus. During this incident, the stolen bus hit several other buses and damaged them as well as the stolen bus being backed into the HS Building. The stolen bus did not leave the campus before the event ended and no one was injured. While repairs will be on-going after classes resume on April 3, 2018, outside agencies have inspected both the bus fleet and HS Building and deemed each safe and ready for normal operations beginning on April 3, 2018 when classes resume at Alton R-IV. We always analyze and review events anytime we have a safety or security incident and have implemented additional safety precautions as a result of this incident.

This is Eric Allen, Superintendent at Alton R-IV, and I am reaching out to inform you of a situation we had on campus earlier today: Alton R-IV School Officials notified the Oregon County Sheriff's Office on 09/27/2017 at approximately 9:40am that multiple students had reported that another student had been making threats of violence at the school on social media and was in possession of a knife on campus. School Officials separated the identified student from the rest of the student body and contacted law enforcement immediately. Following an investigation by officers from the Alton Police Department and the Oregon County Sheriff's Office, a fifteen year old student has been detained and transferred to the custody of the 37th Judicial Circuit Juvenile Office.

Shot Requirements for 2017-2018 school year *All incoming 8th graders will need a Tdap and MCV shot before they can start school in August. *ALL incoming 12th graders will need 2 MCV shots unless the first shot was given after the age of 16, in which case they will only need 1 shot before they can start school in August. * I am sending this information out now to give you 3 full months to get these shots before August. Please do not wait until August to get these required shots because you run the risk of doctors offices/health departments running out of the shots before your child can receive one. Please be aware that if your child does not have their vaccination by the first day of school they will not be able to start until they receive the vaccination. There will be no exceptions!Please turn in proof of vaccinations to my office as soon as you get them. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 778-7217.

Alton R-IV will resume classes on our regular schedule and normal start times on Monday, May 8, 2017. The school year was originally scheduled to end at 12:45pm on Thursday, May 11, 2017. We will now be in session for a full day until 3:26pm on Thursday May 11, 2017. The school year will also be extended by one day and the last day of school will now be on Friday, May 12, 2017 and it will be a full day ending normally at 3:26pm. Bus drivers will be on campus Friday, May 5 to review routes and will be in contact with families, as needed, if route changes are going to be required based on road or bridge conditions. We will do our best, and what is safe, in providing district transportation to students. However, we will ask for support and help from some of our parents in making student transportation a reality for this last week of school. MAP testing for grades 3-8 will be taking place daily the week of May 8-12 as we complete our state mandated testing. We cannot stress enough the importance of your child attending classes and completing this required testing. Elementary awards ceremonies will occur, but not on the same schedule originally sent home with students. A new awards ceremony schedule will be provided soon. JH and HS students will have finals as well (schedule to be posted soon) and those students striving to have good attendance and be exempted from finals need to be aware all days in session the week of May 8 will count toward this goal. As our timeline has become very compressed to conclude the academic requirements of the school year, JH and HS field trips are going to be greatly restricted and elementary field days for all grades, K-6, are going to be cancelled. We regret these decisions, but must prioritize what is to be accomplished in the days on campus we have remaining. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those most directly impacted by the flooding and thank all of our students and patrons for their understanding as we have navigated these issues and rescheduling of events.

Creating an atmosphere free of bullying is a top priority for the Alton R-IV School District. Tomorrow, we are launching a new component of our app that will allow any district stakeholder, including a parent or a student, to report bullying in a safe, secure, manner. We are excited to implement a system that will help us enforce our district's lack of tolerance for bullying behaviors.

This is Eric Allen, Superintendent at Alton. Based on reports of an individual with a gun near, but not on campus, we followed our protocol and went in to lockdown. Law enforcement was contacted and responded very quickly. After an extensive search of the area no individual fitting the description was located. Law enforcement has given the all clear, but we have moved all students from out buildings to either the main elementary or high school building and they will remain there throughout the end of the day. Law enforcement will remain on campus through bus departure time at 3:30. Normal after school practices and events will go forward as planned. Thank you for your patience and understanding as our faculty and law enforcement officers followed our practiced protocols and procedures in this matter.
