Alton Elementary is excited to announce that we are seeking one community partner for each of our 20 elementary classrooms for the 22-23 school year. In addition, partnerships are available with special class teachers, special education classrooms, and special programs. Our goal is for each classroom to be paired together with a business, human service agency, or faith based group. Throughout the year, classroom teachers, along with partners, will work with a common goal of ensuring that all students have what they need to be successful. This might include working together to complete community service activities, providing students in need with basic necessities, and ensuring that a teacher has the resources needed to educate his or her students. We are hoping that the idea of taking on one classroom of around twenty students will be more attainable than trying to help all 400 students at Alton Elementary! If your group would like to sponsor a particular class, let us know! We will work our hardest to make this happen! Please note that the emphasis with this project is community connections. Partnering with a class does not have to be something that will cost your group an arm and a leg! The amount of money you spend will be entirely up to your group! We just want to strengthen ties between our students and our community. If you are interested or would like more information, please comment on this post or send us a PM! You can also contact Elementary Counselor, Tonya Willard. Thanks in advance for helping to make sure all students at Alton Elementary have what they need to be successful!
Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we are unable to email elementary teacher assignments to parents through our system. For this reason, we are releasing this information old school style. If you would like to know who your child's teacher is, class lists are now posted to the front entrance of the elementary. In order to protect the privacy of all students, we do ask that you refrain from posting pictures of the lists to social media.
Elementary teacher assignments were supposed to be delivered today. However, due to a glitch in our system, we were not able to send them out. We are doing everything we can to resolve this issue, and will do our best to send this information out tomorrow. In the meantime, if you have access to the TylerSis Parent Portal, you can view the name of your child's teacher there. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Dr. Julie Williams has been named the Superintendent of Alton R-IV School District effective July 1, 2022. “For 31 years, I have dedicated my life to public education,” said Williams. “I truly believe it is a duty to give back to society and to engross ourselves in the community in which we serve. My greatest passion is to advocate for rural schools and for the impoverished students of Missouri. It has been said, ‘If kids come to us from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important.’ I will continue to advocate for equitable access for Missouri students so each may find success regardless of their background. My father, my siblings, my children, and I all attended Alton R-IV schools. I am grateful for the excellent education we received and have endearing memories of Oregon County. I am excited to share my experience as I team with a new district and look forward to my future in Alton.” Please join us in welcoming Dr. Williams back home!
Summer School Starts May 31st! All students will receive free meals! We hope to see you there!
