On two consecutive Fridays, September 7 and 14, learners from Tecumseh East and West STEAM Centers rolled up their sleeves and went to work in the community as a part of their second annual Days of Service.
TPS recognizes student success depends on partnerships between education and our community. As we work to prepare our students for the next step after high school graduation, we are reaching out to local businesses and organizations for their support.
The 100 Business Buy-In supports the district's Strategic Design and the state's Marshall Plan for Talent. This summary document explains how each plays a role in preparing our youth for future. Please feel free to share it with other businesses who may be interested in participating.
Businesses and organizations who can support career exploration opportunities for learners through career expo participation, job shadowing, apprenticeships, mentorship, employment and the creation of Learning Laboratories in our community are encouraged to complete a short survey.

TPS Launches Education-Business Partnership
For the second year, seventh and eighth grade students from Tecumseh East and West STEAM Centers started their school year with service projects in Tecumseh, Adrian and in between volunteering to help others, and in the process, learning the value of giving of themselves.
'Learning beyond classroom' appreciated
There are many things that make Tecumseh a wonderful place to live. One of the things that make it so special is the people who give of their time so freely to make a difference in the lives of others.
Learners from Tecumseh East and West STEAM Centers recently completed two Community Service Days. We had the opportunity to select from numerous volunteer sites for our service projects. Behind each and every project was a volunteer from our community who led the project and community members who volunteered to chaperone.
Learning can take place in so many settings, and this opportunity to learn beyond the classroom walls was appreciated. Thank you to the following sites for providing opportunities for us to serve: City of Tecumseh, Tecumseh Center for the Arts, Tecumseh Parks and Recreation, Brookside Cemetery, Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh, Compass Learning Center, Tecumseh Woodworks, Tecumseh North and Tecumseh South Early Learning Centers, ProMedica Farm, Fishes and Loaves, Habitat for Humanity, Cambrian Assisted Living, Tecumseh Place, Tecumseh District Library, ABC Grow and Learn, Tecumseh Senior Center, Lenawee Community Foundation, Blessings and More, Scout Cabin and the Lenawee Humane Society. We also thank First Student for providing transportation for both days.
Thank you for your time and for creating such a unique way for us to connect with our community.
