The end of the Kids Heart Challenge saw a celebration at Patterson Intermediate Learning Center. Through their hard work, the students made a huge difference by raising several thousand dollars for the American Heart Association! As a result of their effort, students won various prizes, including some big ones. However, the best part was the opportunity to slam (gently) a pie into a teacher's face! Allie Hoeft, Lindsey Chase, Meggan Callison, and Matt Schmidt were team players, volunteering for the fun. The Kids Heart Challenge focuses on whole-body well-being, helping students improve their health and character while raising life-saving donations for the American Heart Association to help kids with special hearts. #tecumsehpublicschools #kidsheartchallenge #americanheartassociation
Students from Tecumseh Middle School demonstrated their understanding of chemistry at the yearly regional event known as the “You Be the Chemist Challenge.” Held at the Julianne and George Argyros Performing Arts Center, Alex Hicks, Maxwell Husband, Reid Stamper, Harrison Stamper, and Charlie Stark held their own and represented TMS and the District well during the challenge. The Chemical Educational Foundation & You Be The Chemist, a national organization dedicated to advancing chemistry education, created the competition to celebrate the field of chemistry and encourage science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers among students in middle school. Students from three county schools engaged in the event. The competition involved teams responding to timed multiple-choice and short-answer questions on various chemistry concepts. Great work, guys!

This week is National School Counseling Week! Tecumseh Public Schools is lucky to have six dedicated school counselors who support our students every single day. Today, school counselors play a pivotal role in the problem-solving process, actively contributing to the preservation of the mental and emotional health of both students and parents. Their responsibilities range from advising on educational decisions to offering crucial mental health support, showcasing the diverse nature of their work as they dedicate themselves to promoting the well-being and success of students. As adept mental health professionals, school counselors aim to establish secure, positive, and reliable relationships with their students. We celebrate Trisha Mertens, Jami Cole, Jennifer Morgan, Michelle Doerfler, Deborah Followell, and Deb Laney. Thank you for your hard work!
Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow yesterday during Groundhog Day, meaning an early spring (allegedly)! Our Young 5s students at Tecumseh Acres Early Learning Center must have had the inside track because almost all of them predicted Phil wouldn’t see his shadow. I think our students are hoping for an early spring!
