Today, on Veterans Day, we pay tribute to our military veterans' remarkable dedication, sacrifice, and hard work. This day stands as a testament to all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally known as Armistice Day, November 11 signifies the end of World War I, concluding on November 11, 1918. In 1954, this day was renamed Veterans Day to honor veterans from all conflicts. It's a yearly celebration on November 11 and has held federal holiday status since 1926. Within Tecumseh Public Schools, our veterans contribute significantly daily to our district. Their courage, selflessness, sacrifice, and valor in safeguarding our freedom are deeply appreciated and will never be forgotten. Gratitude goes out to Greg Dolson, Sgt. Scott Lambka (SRO), Tim Mark, Magnum Stead, Paul Wellman, Dan Koerber, Nick Benschoter, and Greg Lewis (Board of Education member). The liberty we cherish is safeguarded by the bravery of those who have served. We honor and appreciate all the men and women who have selflessly served our nation. #VeteransDay #ThankYou
Hat days at Tecumseh Acres Early Learning Center weren't just about style—they were about heart and community. During the hat days, students rallied to raise several hundred dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project, showcasing the power of unity and generosity. But that's not all!

Today, these letters will find their way to Hall-Slater VFW Post 4187 just in time for Veterans Day this Saturday. Join us in celebrating these young changemakers! Small actions, big impacts—because even the littlest hats can make a huge difference!
