If you using a check, please make it out to Tecumseh High School.
Under new restrictions announced by the state, Tecumseh High School students will stay in the remote learning model until December 8. When the restrictions are lifted on December 9, high school students will then return to the hybrid model.

ICYMI: THS students and staff getting some love from The Daily Telegram. The Open Heart steel sculpture was months in the making and the red Remembrance Poppies took weeks to make. Both made their public debuts this week during our Veterans Day ceremony. The Open Heart sculpture is all about love of community. Check out the article and if you haven't yet, take a look at the previous Veterans Day posts from this week. https://www.lenconnect.com/news/20201111/tecumseh-high-school-art-students-honor-veterans-with-poppy-project-rsquoopen-heartrsquo-steel-sculpture

NEW TECH HAS ARRIVED! Within the last couple of days, we have finally received a shipment of brand new Chromebook tablets and Chromebook laptops. 500 of each! Back in July, we put in an order for the tablets and they just arrived late last week. Getting the laptops was a little easier. That request was made just a few short weeks ago and they arrived yesterday. In the coming days, the tablets will go to ELC students and the laptops will be dispersed among high school students. A shout out to our technology department. They've been working nonstop to get these babies up and running. Great job Deven and JP!
As we near Veterans Day, THS art students took the time out of their day today to place red poppies in the Sculpture Garden. The poppies are lined up along the path leading to the new Open Heart steel sculpture. It may not look like it, but over 560 poppies were made and placed in the garden. It took students from Christine Obeid and Jackie Whiteley's art classes four weeks to make all of these red poppies. Here in the US, and other countries like Britain and Canada, the Remembrance Poppy is a moving symbol of respect for the war dead. It's also a source of support for veterans and their families.
Preparing for Veterans Day This morning, members of the Tecumseh High School Cadet Program took some time to coordinate and prepare for a Veterans Day ceremony. The ceremony is on Wednesday (11th) in the THS Sculpture Garden. Veterans Day honors all of those who have served the country in war or peace, dead or alive. It’s largely intended to thank living veterans for their sacrifices.
