It was a fun October for preschoolers at Tecumseh Public Schools Preschool. The children and the staff took a short drive to Britton and visited Forever Acres Farm llc. They had a fantastic time seeing the animals, picking up pumpkins, and snacking on some treats. Another BIG shoutout goes to the Raisin Township Fire Department. They visited the preschool and Sutton Early Learning Center to talk about National Fire Prevention Month in October. They went over fire safety and even allowed our children to sit in the fire truck. If you haven't visited the Preschool's Facebook page, head over there and give them a follow!

Ahead of Veterans Day on Friday, November 11, students from Tecumseh Middle School stopped by Brookside Cemetery this morning. They located the headstones of veterans and cleaned them thoroughly, along with some help from others. The students encountered veterans of several wars, including World Wars I and II. Some of the stones had mold and dirt build-up, but the students did a fantastic job of being respectful in their cleaning. The Tecumseh Middle School Builders Club, which included members and non-members, put together the cleaning, and the students were overseen today by Board of Education Trustee Mary Tommelein. Don’t forget that TMS will host a Veterans Day breakfast on Thursday, November 10. The breakfast will run from 8am-9:30am. Veterans, we would love for you to join our 8th graders for breakfast. For more information on the breakfast, please contact: 👩: Jayme Funchion 📱: 517-423-1105 📧: email@example.com
TPS family and community, we are asking for your support. Recently, Tecumseh Middle School 6th grader Vann Burpee was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He has gone through biopsy surgery to figure out what the next course of action is. Unfortunately, the tumor cannot be surgically removed. As Vann and his family go through this next phase, we hope you will support the 'Victory for Vann' campaign. Starting now and for the next several weeks, we are selling shirts with 100% of proceeds going to Vann and his family. Please consider supporting the Burpee family during this challenging time. Thank you! 'Victory for Vann' shirts ⬇️ https://victoryforvann.itemorder.com/shop/home/ For more information, please reach out to ⬇️ 👩: Jayme Funchion 📧: firstname.lastname@example.org
Next stop, Milan! 6th-8th grade students from Tecumseh Middle School competed in a spelling bee in preparation for the Milan Regional Spelling Bee. The students were challenged with tough words, but in the end, the top five spellers from each grade will move on and represent Tecumseh in the spelling bee. The winners will have some time to prepare. The Milan Regional Spelling Bee is set for Saturday, November 12. Good luck!
Bon appétit! Students in Ms. Weaver's class at Tecumseh Middle School made their own personal pizzas. The process was all on the students. They made their grocery list and filled out a recipe card. They built their pizzas with all of their favorite ingredients!

A small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our homeless or needy neighbors. Right now, students and staff at Tecumseh Middle School and Tecumseh High School (high school drive put on by Sources of Strength) are collecting new socks for Socktober! Small gifts matter, and as the weather turns cooler, even one donation of new socks can make a world of difference for someone in need. If you want to donate, you can send the socks to school with your student or drop them off at TMS or THS.

Today was a great learning experience for some of our Tecumseh High School students. 10th-grade students from Ms. Arnold's AP World and World History classes traveled to Dearborn to visit the Arab American National Museum. This field trip was a cultural extension activity related to the World History curriculum. After the museum visit, everyone headed to Shatila Bakery for some authentic Mediterranean pastries.
A fun time yesterday at Sutton Early Learning Center. Students and staff participated in a PBIS school-wide celebration for being Safe, Kind, and Responsible. Students can earn pride tickets for being Safe, Kind, and Responsible. Each teacher keeps a tally of the tickets as they work to reach their class goals. When the school hits its goal, there's a school-wide celebration. In this case, a dance party! PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. It promotes positive relationships among students and staff and creates a respectful culture for all students.
