Unpack the Backpack Night

Tonica Grade School Staff and the PTC will be hosting an unpack the backpack event the night before the first day of school.  Meet teachers, bring student school items for the first day of school and other events to be determined.  There will be a starting gathering in the main gym at 5:30 p.m. to kick off the event.  This will be on Thursday, August 18th, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.  This event will replace our Open House.  We are also planning to have a short extra-curricular sport meeting for those participating during the school year at approximately 6:15 - 6:30 pm in the main gym.  This would replace the yearly parent meeting that occurred on the Wednesday before school started.

Tonica Grade School Sign

The Tonica Community Consolidated School District #79 is a K-8th grade district encompassing 59 square miles.

For a period of forty years, from 1868 to 1907, and before additions, the main part of this school house [called the “white school” because of its exterior color] was built in 1868 and before that time two one-room structures were used on this site for eleven years.
