Students at Patterson Intermediate Learning Center wrapped up an assembly just before the end of the day. This was the PBIS assembly. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.

During today's assembly, students from Ms. Leightner's class showcased several skits focusing on responsibility. There were also prizes! Some students won a pizza party, while others took home some neat gadgets.

It was storytime today with special guests at Tecumseh Acres Early Learning Center. Dylan Bloomfield, a 2008 Tecumseh High School graduate, joined students via Zoom to read, color, and draw from a book he co-created. Bloomfield illustrated the book ‘Koby & Egbert Go Surfing.’ It’s the first book in a series he and his partner Jonah Heller created called Salty Pineapple Kids. The book introduces the audience to Koby and Egbert. Koby is a pineapple, and Egbert is an eggplant. They are friends and learn that teamwork makes the dream work. After reading the book, students colored alongside Dylan. Dylan would then draw Koby, much to the students liking.

HIMS A GOOD BOY!!! But don't be fooled by his good looks. He's heavily trained to assist police and other law enforcement officials, and he's ready to go. This morning, K9 Havoc took a break from catching criminals and working on investigations to visit the students at Herrick Park Intermediate Learning Center. Havoc's handler, Trooper Jack Taeff, and Trooper Don Stewart of the Michigan State Police talked about Havoc's role in day-to-day operations, training procedures, and more. Just a few of Havoc's jobs are narcotics detection, officer protection, suspect apprehension, and building clearance. According to Tpr. Taeff and Tpr. Stewart, Havoc sure loves being the center of attention. Before leaving, he received a bunch of pets from students and staff! K9 Havoc will be visiting Patterson Intermediate Learning Center later this afternoon.
What a fun time for third graders at Herrick Park Intermediate Learning Center. On Friday, they did a little bowling at Ten Pin Bowling Alley. The students culminated their learning of force and motion and put it to good use.

On Monday, the Board of Education approved a new boiler for the Tecumseh Community Pool. Several days later, it's already here! As most of you are aware, the outgoing boiler has pretty much reached the end of its life. We bid it farewell. This project is getting underway, and the whole process will take a month or less to complete. Pool operations should not be affected by the project. We think pool director Sarah Eubanks is pretty happy!
