"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." Alton Elementary School would like to think the employees at Alton Bank for stocking our Giving Tree Clothes Closet with tennis shoes for the school year! Jeffery Roberts and Sara Wheeler from Alton Bank even did the shopping for us and delivered the shoes to our front door! We also want to thank Braxton Reickeneker, Hannah Collins, and Mayali Barton from Shoe Sensation for helping choose the shoes and then cutting us a special deal that allowed for the purchase of several additional pairs of shoes! In all, Shoe Sensation came up with $600 worth of discounts! We would also like to thank Mrs. Judy Wright for donating so much of her time to keep our closet up and running! Multiple students use the closet each day, and without Mrs. Judy, the closet would cease to exist! Mrs. Judy, please know you are so loved and appreciated! If your organization is interested in donating to our Giving Tree fund, please contact one of our School Counselors. This fund helps supply needed clothing, shoes, hygiene products, and school supplies to students in our district each day. The funding for the closet relies completely on community donations.
School starts August 21st! We can't wait to see you. Check out our school calendar for more important dates!

Andy Earls, Redline Media Alliance and all others associated with starting the Alton Sports Network…THANK YOU! Thank you just isn’t enough! You have no idea how much your support helped shape our program this year. Not only by offering your knowledge but also donating equipment and teaching us how to use it! You have been such a huge help in getting the Multimedia class off to a great start! Your support and faith in our ability made all the difference. You had confidence where we did not and that gave us the confidence we needed. The students are the real story here. They put in the time and made this program work! They knew going into this year they would have to give of their time and energy both during class and after school. I am so very proud of the students from this first year! There were even students who were unable to take my class but still volunteered to work the equipment or use their talent as commentators. They have laid the groundwork for the future of Alton Sports Network! I am truly excited to see where our program goes from here! Again, THANK YOU and I’m sure we will be reaching out for guidance and support! Good Luck moving forward with your future endeavors and you are ALWAYS WELCOME in COMET COUNTRY! Sincerely, Marilyn Cockrum and the entire Multimedia Class of 2023
