Survivor Football is Back

Once again the Teutopolis Educational Foundation(TEF) is sponsoring a Survivor Football Pool.  The flyer with instructions can be accessed by using the link below.  Please forward this on to anyone who may be interested.  Last year we payed out $780, and we are hoping for more participants this year.

Please note that if you played last year, you should have received an email earlier this week from the website, runyourpool.com, that contained a link to our pool.  That link will work best for people who participated last year, as it will fill in your previous user name. 

However, for our rookies who want to play,  use the link in the flyer.  
Thanks for playing.

New Logo Unveiled for TEF

When the Teutopolis Educational Foundation decided it was time to update its logo, the members decided to utilize some of Teutopolis Unit #50’s most talented individuals, the students. Mrs. Petty, the art teacher, helped organize a contest among junior high and high school students to create a new logo. The number of creative, artistic, and unique pieces made choosing one winner challenging. In the end, Kendal Zerrusen, a freshman at THS, was named the winner. He was awarded with an Amazon gift card, and he will now see his logo everywhere TEF is involved! Congrats Kendal, and thank you for your time and effort; we are proud of you!

Who's Ready to Golf?!

The annual TEF Golf Outing will be held Friday, June 10, 2016 at Meadowview Golf Course.


Dr. Schumacher Makes $2400 Donation

Four years ago Dr. Schumacher started the Smiles for Schools Program. 
Through this program, Schumacher Orthodontics donates $50 to the Teutopolis Education Foundation for each T-Town student who starts orthodontic treatment. To date, the Smiles for Schools Program has donated over $20,000 to area schools. This year Dr. Schumacher was happy to present a check to the Teutopolis Education Foundation for $2,400. We can't wait to see what next year brings!
