The community of Storm Lake will be experiencing a reality when the final touches are completed on a state of the art auditorium in August of 2016.

The auditorium has been discussed and dismissed since 1962 and, thanks to the directors of the Storm Lake Board of Education, will finally become a reality. Our goal is to provide a state of the art  instrument that will allow the audience to not only hear the music, but to be able to feel it as well. 

We are asking the community to come together and help us achieve the goal of acquiring this instrument by donating to the Storm Lake Music Booster Steinway fund. Together we can make all our dreams come true.  If you have any questions regarding your contribution or the Steinway, please contact Jeff Tollefson at 712-732-8065 or email at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Why Steinway...
  • Synonymous with excellence
  • Handcrafted/exceptional quality
  • Most responsive touch in the world
  • Tone set to venue
  • Have increased in value for the last one and a half centuries
  • At any time during the lifetime of your purchase you can trade in your Steinway and receive the FULL AMOUNT ORIGINALLY PAID in credit towards a new Steinway of greater value.

Pleae consider being a part of what so many people have wished for and to have, an auditorium with an instrument of this magnitude.  Our School District, our students and our community deserve an instrument of this caliber.  There are more expensive pianos and less expensive pianos, but the Steinway is truly the right choice for our auditorium.

In the Spotlight

On Wednesday, September 7th, 23 students in a Current Events course at the high school, took a trip to the KTIV television station in Sioux City. The trip gave students a visual connection to their current work of developing their own small group production as a final project. KTIV staff, including a Storm Lake graduate, were very helpful explaining the broadcasting process and answering student curiosities. Students were also privileged to be a live audience during the noon broadcast. It was a great experience to see what happens during the commercial breaks of the show and see how many things can be discussed and done in that short time period!
ZERO THE HERO
Zero the Hero came to tell us about important things she can do with her super power of 0, such as make new numbers when you run out of numbers and have to stop at a 9. With her help, counting is infinite!  :)
 
She visited all three classrooms and brought 0 candy!  But did bring us a healthy treat instead.  She will visit again on the 100th day.
