The mission of the Alton School District is to prepare our students with college, career and citizenship skills through a safe and progressive learning environment.
Rotarians Larry Thompson and Ron Mayhew deliver a set of books to Eric Dickerson's classroom at Lewis & Clark Elementary School. We are grateful to the Alton Godfrey Rotary Club for the recent donation of over $1200 worth of literature that will be enjoyed by students in fourth grade classrooms across the district. A special thanks to Ron Mayhew for taking the time to survey classroom teachers to tailor the purchase to instructional objectives and student interest. The Alton School District truly appreciates the ongoing support from our local Rotary Club.
News 4 Schools: Metro East school getting boost in reading skills
Students at Alton's West Elementary are getting an extra boost in reading skills thanks to some generous volunteers.
This year a dedicated group of community members has stepped up to support our second grade students in the area of reading. Three of our elementary schools have implemented a program commonly referred to as Reach Out And Read, or R.O.A.R.
Reach Out and Read targets a thirty minute block of time in the mornings before classes start, where second grade students can practice their reading one on one with an adult. East Elementary, West Elementary, and Lovejoy Elementary are thankful for our wonderful network of community businesses and organizations that are willing to contribute their time to support literacy.
