Tonya As schools wrap up their week celebrating school counselor week, we can’t help but save the best for last. Alton Elementary feels extra blessed, not just this week but Every. Single. Day. Everyone deserves to have a Mrs. Willard in their life. Not only does she go above and beyond for our students in all areas of their life, she also goes above and beyond to support and love our staff and the parents\guardians of our students. She is a counselor, a friend, an advocate, a cook, a cheerleader, a life coach, supplier of needs and that’s just a short list of what she does for others. She is also a wife and mother to three precious children and we are blessed they share her with us. Mrs Willard, THANK YOU for loving our school community without end. You make our world a better place and we could not be more proud to call you a part of our Comet family.
Elementary basketball pictures will be next Tuesday, Feb. 9th. This is for both boys and girls, unless your child’s coach has told you otherwise. Please have your child wear his or her jersey.

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.
