Cheerleading 005

On July 8 thru 10th, the Teutopolis Jr. High cheerleaders attended camp at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.   They learned sideline cheers, floor cheers, several dances and exciting new stunts.

7th grade attendees were:   Emma Ruholl, Claire Niebrugge, Shannon Thoele, Diana Mossman, Charis Coventry, and Abby Cothran.

8th grade attendees were: Julia Hardiek, Julia Henderson, Nicole Deters, Lanae Koester, Abby Schmidt, and Elizabeth Will.

4 cheerleaders earned the award of All American. They are Julia Hardiek, Julia Henderson, Nicole Deters, and Lanae Koester.

In addition, Lanae Koester received the Pin it Forward award for her leadership, spirit, commitment, kindness and motivation.  

We left camp with 3 trophies, spirit stick and Blue & Red ribbons.

We look forward to showcasing our new cheers and entertaining the crowd with our halftime routines!!!!

St. Anthony  Memorial Hospital 

Functional Movement Screen


The physical therapy staff from St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital is offering a FREE Injury Screening to all Teutopolis High School athletes on Saturday, August 23, 2014, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at the THS gymnasium. 


The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) identifies asymmetries and limitations in movement that may reduce the effects of training and physical conditioning.  The main purpose of the screen is to identify individuals at risk for an injury.  Any issues identified during the screen will be discussed with the athlete by the physical therapist as well as suggestions for corrective strategies. 


If an athlete is interested in participating in the free screen, please contact Andy Johnson to schedule a time on Saturday, August 23, 2014.  Each screen takes approximately 30 minutes.


Thank you.

Parents of graduated Special Ed Students:

The Illinois State Archives recommends destroying special education records five years after the student has graduated or permanently withdrawn from school.  The special education records of students who attended Teutopolis Unit 50 school district in Teutopolis, IL who were born before 1989 will be disposed of in November 2014.  Those students have until November 1, 2014 to pick up their records.  Contact Melissa Habing at TGS at 217-857-3232 to make an appointment to obtain your records.


Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, lunch money will be setup up as "FAMILY" accounts (instead of individual student lunch accounts).  Family Deposits can be made at any of the three schools.

Example:  If you have a child in each building, you will have one "Family Lunch Account" for your three children.  All lunch deposits and meal withdrawals for the three children will go through the one Family account.
