How the Foundation Works

We raise funds in the community and make grants to principals, teachers, clubs and students. We work with the PTC, principal, teachers and clubs to identify the areas that need our support. The Tonica Grade School Foundation has two main goals:

  • To support programs that enhance the academic, social, and career development of every student in the Tonica Community Consolidated School District.
  • To encourage community support for Tonica Grade School.
