America's most practical and entertaining parenting program is here again! Altamont School District invites you to the Spring 2017 Love & Logic class!
Learn how to:
- Avoid un-winnable power-struggles and arguments
- Stay calm when your kids do incredibly upsetting things
- Set enforceable limits
- Avoid enabling and begin empowering
- Help your kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them
- Raise kids who are family members rather than dictators
- And much more!
The cost is $30 per couple for Altamont families; $40 per couple for families outside of Altamont. Scholarships are available for those who qualify. Sorry, child care is not available. Classes run once a week for six weeks. Each class is about 90 minutes long. Right now, I am seeking input on scheduling the classes. If you have an interest in attending this class, please fill out the following questionnaire by February 24th:

Illinois recognizes the need for a common, standards- and performance-based assessment of teaching effectiveness that measures the classroom readiness of teacher candidates and provides information for program improvement. The edTPA is designed to ensure that those who become teachers not only understand educational theory and subject matter content, but can demonstrate their ability to lead a classroom and support students in their learning. New teachers have to be effective from day one.
The edTPA is a performance-based, subject-specific assessment that measures effectiveness in the classroom by focusing on student learning. The edTPA uses processes similar to National Board certification insofar as candidates are required to provide evidence of their practice through the submission of video and other artifacts.

How will the affect you?
If you are the parent or guardian of an ACUSD#10 student you may have received phone calls that start out with "This is School Reach calling . . ." That pre message may change. Also School Messenger pulls the student home phone number directly from Teacher Ease so whatever home phone number is listed for your son or daughter in Teacher Ease that is the number the system is going to call.
IF YOUR HOME PHONE NUMBER HAS CHANGED RECENTLY PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE AND HAVE IT CHANGED ASAP.
Also - if you have any School Reach smart phone apps that are using the ACUSD#10 accounts please be aware that those will stop working on or about December 2nd as the changeover should be complete by that time.
LASTLY If you get a call from either of our automated calling systems and it is calling the wrong number or you do not have a student attending ACUSD#10 schools please call the school office that made the call. (AGS - 618-483-5171 / ACHS 618-483-6193). When you call please give us the phone number that the system is calling and if possible what student might be tied to that number.
