  • Welcome to Mr. Boettcher's Website!!! 

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to Antioch Upper Grade! My name is Jon Boettcher, and I am your child’s 6th grade case manager.  I am a graduate of Carthage College and this is my 7th year at Antioch Upper Grade School. I have 2 kids: a 7 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. I am very excited about teaching your child this year and look forward to their academic success. The classes I am directly involved in are Instructional Math, Resource, Success, and I also Co-teach in an ELA and General Ed Math class. 

     I feel that constant communication between you, the teacher, and your child is the key to success at the middle school level.  It is true that the children are becoming more mature and independent, but they still need your guidance and attention in regards to their academics. 

    A form of communication that is convenient for me is e-mail.  Through these e-mails I will be sending you information about what is happening in the classroom. I will also be using e-mail to communicate important dates for future meetings regarding IEP accommodations. This year we are attempting to schedule meetings well in advance to make sure parents have plenty of time to adjust their own schedules.

     You may also contact me by calling my voicemail at school.  Leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.

     Thank you so much for your help and I look forward to a fabulous school year with your child!



    Jon M. Boettcher
