Mrs. Hotze's library classes have been reading Maybe Something Beautiful; How Art Transformed a Neighborhood, by F. Isabel Campoy. "Based on a true story, Maybe Something Beautiful reveals how art can inspire transformation- and how even the smallest artists can accomplish something big." This story was inspired by Rafael Lopez, a muralist from San Diego, California. Mrs. Hotze likes to emphasize the quote from this book to her students, "You, my friends, are all artists. The world is your canvas." This book is one of the twenty 2018 Monarch books that Mrs. Hotze reads throughout the school year with the kindergarten through 3rd-grade students at TGS. In January, these beautiful murals will be on display just outside the library doors.

Mrs. Nice hosted a “speed book dating” for the students at TJHS. This is a fun way for students to be exposed to a wide variety of books to spark some interest in new titles. Mrs. Nice played love songs while students rotated to different stations, which hosted four titles. Students chose one book at each station to rate in three categories: First Impression-judging how well they think they would like the book based on its cover and appearance Flirting-rating the book based on the summary Getting to Know You-make a judgement after reading a few pages of the book In the end, each book got a final score and students chose whether or not they would “take the book out”...of the library.

At TJHS, students take an "Exploratory" class each quarter. For 2nd quarter, one of the "Exploratory" classes is called Christmas Creations. 18 junior high students met with Mrs. Jansen's kindergarten class. During this time, the kindergarten students told the junior high kids all about themselves, their hobbies, and their holiday traditions. This information will be used by the junior high students to create a holiday story with their kindergarten buddy as the main character! As Christmas draws near, the junior high students will once again have the chance to meet up with their buddy to present and read the story to them. What better way to kick off the holiday season than sharing a one-of-a-kind book with a friend!

Q. Will the state of Illinois hold on to this money like they did with the lottery? A. These funds are not subject to the budget process in the state of Illinois. The sales tax receipts are processed by the Department of Revenue which keeps 2% of the funds before they are returned to the Regional Office of Education for disbursement to the appropriate school districts. Teutopolis Unit #50 has been getting monthly revenue from the Shelby County Sales Tax for nearly two years and has seen no evidence that money is being kept by the state of Illinois.

How much revenue will be generated from the County School Facilities Tax? It is estimated that about $5.3 million would be generated annually for public school districts in Effingham County. The money follows the students. ESTIMATES: Altamont #10 $ 790,000 Beecher City #20 $ 237,000 Dieterich #30 $ 483,000 Effingham #40 $2,761,000 Teutopolis #50 $1,062,000 North Clay, Jasper County, St. Elmo, and Stew-Stras - $10,000 Total Estimated Revenue = $5,345,000. To raise the same $1,062,000 in Teutopolis Unit #50 with property taxes, our district’s property tax rate would go from $3.70452 to $4.62452 per $100 of assessed value. This means that a house with a fair market value of $240,000 (EAV of $80,000) would see the school district’s portion of the tax bill rise from $2,963.62 to $3,699.62. This is an increase of $736. To generate $736 with the sales tax, a person would have to spend $73,600 on taxable items. Current Rate = 3.70452 New Rate = 4.62452 Increase = .92
