Dear East Alton Elementary District #13 Family:

 For the past year, there has been much discussion and input given about our district joining Oiler Nation.  Oiler Nation is a school and stakeholder effort  to build a stronger community, an even stronger relationship with our fellow school districts, and boost the morale of our students. The district surveyed the community and staff and majority desired to change the mascot. Therefore, EA13 will fully engage in Oiler Nation starting the 22-23 school year with the mascot of all of our EA13 district’s schools being the Oilers and official school colors changing to maroon and gold.

 It is important to know that we are still the East Alton Elementary District #13 with our own identity and culture.  Be on the lookout for the opportunity to purchase apparel representing our new colors and mascot.

As always, thank you for your continued support.
