Bon Homme School District is made up of the communities and rural areas of Springfield, Tabor, Tyndall, and the Bon Homme Hutterische Colony. Your interest in our District is appreciated and we know you will be impressed with the many accomplishments of Bon Homme students, staff, and Board of Education. The District employs an Alternate School Year Schedule which began with the 2006-2007 school year. Benefits to students, staff and student morale, instruction and test scores, and cost savings continue to be monitored.

Hard work is continually done to ensure our students and parents receive nothing short of the best education that our School District and great state have to offer. Information provided on our website gives you information of the many things happening within the Bon Homme School District. I deeply appreciate the focus placed on learning and the caring and commitment of our Bon Homme Staff and the Board of Education in their commitment of excellence in serving the students who are our future leaders, their parents, and communities.

Do you have old yearbooks collecting dust at home? Has a loved one in your family passed on and you don't know what to do with their high school yearbooks? We can help! Bon Homme School District keeps an archive of yearbooks from graduates of Springfield, Tabor, Tyndall, and Bon Homme High Schools.

The yearbooks are protected for historical purposes and can be borrowed for high school reunions. To keep the books in good condition, the yearbooks are stored in a safe place and are not part of the district library. 

Please drop the yearbooks off at the District Office in Tyndall, or call (605) 589-3388 Ext. 210 with questions. Thanks for helping preserve our history.
