The Tornado Education Foundation is a foundation established through the South Dakota Community Foundation. The Tornado Education Foundation was established in 2018. Through a collaborative effort between the Centerville Development Corporation and Centerville School District the foundation was developed. The Centerville Development Corporation donated $80,000 to have a lasting impact for our students, teachers, and advisors. The foundation provides grants each year in the areas of classroom innovation, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) initiatives, arts, and athletics. To date, we have provided $4,000 in grant money for these types of projects. Alumni, grandparents, parents, and friends if you would like to donate to the foundation for a continued lasting educational impact you can do that with us. No donation is too small. Please mail checks made out to South Dakota Community Foundation (memo: Tornado Education Foundation) to: Centerville School C/O Eric Knight PO Bo 100, Centerville, SD 57014. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to all that worked yesterday at the Lounsbery Early Bird. We had a great day with some beautiful weather (little windy). We will host our next track meet on April 13 starting at 1 pm. It will be another big day to show off our facilities and town. It takes several people to run a track meet. If you can spare the time we would love to have you. Without help from the community these meets would not be possible. Thanks again!!
