8th graders at West STEAM Center learning about golf this week. Health and PE teacher Kristy Zajac created a 9-hole course, called Tecumseh West Golf Course. The project is aimed at teaching students the rules, etiquette and proper form and techniques of golf. Students start out at the designed driving range and then they take part in the 9-hole course. It's a great way for the students to learn about golf and get outside and enjoy the better weather we're having.

Sensory gardens should be accessible for all people to enjoy - disabled and non-disabled. So far, we've received several donations, including a $500 donation from the Tecumseh Arbor Cleaners Group. Over the weekend, the Tecumseh South PTO raised $258 for the sensory garden. The Easter Bunny showed up for some pictures during bowling, and made an appearance over at South ELC.
