Mr. Reed and some of our JAG students worked in frigid weather this week to remove the Christmas decorations from the courthouse. Learning job skills is important but it is equally important to teach our students the value of volunteerism and love for your community. We are so proud of this program and what it has done for our students.
Revitalizing a community requires meeting its most basic needs. In the Missouri farm towns that feed America, 1 in 4 low-income families are worried their kids do not have enough to eat between lunch and breakfast the following day. Life 360 Community Services is working to change this statistic! They have partnered with Missouri schools and the USDA to fuel the growing minds and bodies of students after school to reverse the damaging effects of food insecurity. Thanks to Life 360 Community Services, every student at Alton R-IV, grades preschool through 12th, will now be taking home a snack each and every day! This includes a milk as well as a few other delicious snacks. This is an incredible program and Alton R-IV is grateful to be a part of it! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Life 360! #Life360CommunityServices #CometFamily #StudentsFirst
Huge thank you to Burger Palace and Kristie Rackley for giving our whole 3rd grade the best Christmas party ever.

Hey parents! Check out this neat idea! One of our teachers attached student masks to lanyards in order to keep students from losing them during lunch and recess times. We thought this was a really cool idea and wanted to pass it along to all of you! She chose to use the break away style to ensure student safety. Our teachers are the best :)
