The new school year is set to begin in less than two weeks. However, with the start of school also brings the end of a federal government program that provided universal free meals to students during the pandemic. TPS families will once again have to fill out the short application and provide income details to find out if they are eligible for reduced-price or free meals. The USDA has raised the income amounts to qualify for the program. Those without an updated application on file will pay full price. The District has set up the Meal Benefits application through Infinite Campus. Sign up information can be found here: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1491/TPS/2275879/Meal-Benefits-Application-_Portal_.pdf You can also fill out the application and drop it off at the building your child attends or mail it to TPS.

The Sculpture Garden at Tecumseh High School is about to receive a huge facelift. Phase Three of the Sculpture Garden is nearing completion. Last week, the construction of the amphitheater at the garden began and is moving along nicely. Last August, the art department received a very generous anonymous donation of $30,000. That money is being put to great use as it completely pays for the construction and concrete seating. This project is spearheaded by THS art instructors Christine Obeid and Jackie Whiteley, along with retired art teacher Ron Frenzen. The Sculpture Garden has come a long way over the past several years. The area is open to the public. Please stop by and check it out!

Summer school ends on Thursday, so today was the final field trip for students. While our 5-8 grade students were out kayaking/canoeing, our K-4 students were learning about fire safety from the Tecumseh Fire Department. The students learned more about stop, drop and roll, get out of a burning building safely, smoke alarms, and more. However, the best part was a tour of the firehouse! Students were able to climb into a fire truck and take a quick peek inside. They also learned more about the gear firefighters use daily as part of their job. While we were there, students waved bye as a fire engine had to head out to a call. It was a great field trip for our students as summer school ends.

The students took what they learned and created their own turtle from clay! The spiny softshell turtle is one of the largest freshwater turtle species in North America. The turtle has a flat, leathery shell with very flexible edges. It somewhat resembles a pancake.
