Most importantly, they take time to get to know our students and they make more of an impact on their lives than they probably realize. We can't thank them enough for their commitment to Alton R-IV.

This year Alton Elementary School is selling a wallet size discount card that has unlimited discounts to a variety of merchants in the surrounding areas. We hope you will consider taking part in this unique opportunity that will benefit the students at our school by allowing us to purchase items for our PBS store (incentives for positive behaviors). The discount cards are customized to our community. The card is basically several coupon promotions all printed on a single wallet-sized card. The cards will have an expiration of August 31, 2020 and can be used repeatedly by the buyer during that time. Our goal is for every student to sell at least one card. We are selling the cards for $10 each. The more cards that we sell, the more money we raise for our school. The cards can be purchased from any Elementary student and they are also available in the elementary office. Card sales begin tomorrow (9/6).

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. The organization recognizes outstanding achievement, promotes character and social responsibility, encourages service involvement to school and community, and fosters leadership skills.

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.

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.

Mrs. Cockrum stands out as someone who spends, many, many hours at school perfecting all of her lessons for her students. Mrs. Cockrum teaches Science, and she leaves her students talking nonstop about the neat experiments that take place in her classroom. Mrs. Cockrum also has the biggest heart. She goes out of her way to find out what is going on when one of her students seems to be having a bad day. In addition, Mrs. Cockrum is always looking out for her coworkers. She constantly goes the extra mile to brighten other people's days. We love you Mrs. Cockrum! Thanks for all you do for your students and friends at Alton Elementary!

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.
