Choir Student Sponsorship Opportunity Alton Community, Our Soundwaves Choir Department will be attending an event called "Music in the Parks". The cost of this event is $88. It covers park admission and a food stand voucher. As many of you know, this is a large expense for some families; especially when you have multiple students in a family attending. We want to ensure that every student can attend. We have about 8-10 students who need a "sponsor" to cover the $88 cost. If you feel led to be a sponsor, please comment below or email Mr. Cole Barton (email@example.com). We appreciate any support you can provide.
Once again, Mrs. Whitten went above and beyond providing Mrs. Holesapple's 3rd grade class with an ice cream sundae/rootbeer float party. Huge thanks to Mrs. Whitten and Fuel Express/Quick Connection.
Big Smiles Dental was scheduled to be here on February 2nd, but that had to be canceled due to us not having school. They will be coming this Friday February 16th to see the students that were already signed up to be seen on the 2nd.
Alton R-4 will be closed today due to incoming snow. Stay warm!
Comet Families, We regret to inform you that the City of Alton will need to turn off water on campus this Friday, February 2nd. This is due to a visitor to the school hitting a fire hydrant, which will need to be repaired. It is a lengthy process that could take most of the day. As a result, we will have to cancel school (02-02-24). However, to minimize disruptions to your child's education, we will be sending work home with your child on Thursday. This work will need to be returned on Monday, February 5th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Mrs. Reese

Comet Family, Due to the rain, most of the ice on the roads has melted, but some gravel roads are still slippery. Therefore, we have decided to cancel school on Tuesday, January 23rd. Mrs. Reese
