Friday saw two great wins against rival Adrian for our Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball programs. During halftime of the boys' game, our Unified athletes took to the court to showcase their talent, and what a great time it was. The Unified Sports program at TPS is relatively new. The goal is simple; to give everyone of all abilities an opportunity to participate in sports. Unified Sports gives us the platform to spread the vital importance of inclusion in our schools.

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. If you're not familiar with it, with PBIS, schools teach kids about behavior expectations and strategies. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment. 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.
