The K12 Art Show at Tecumseh High School is wrapping up tonight. The art is here at the high school, but our artists' work is showing up in some other places. TPS art teachers and students throughout the district created a variety of sunflower art and have teamed up with businesses in Downtown Tecumseh to display the work. This artwork is to show our support for former exchange student Valeriya Isakova and her family. Valeryia, her mother and brother escaped Ukraine at the beginning of the invasion of the country. After obtaining US visas, the trio are expected to arrive in Tecumseh this weekend! The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. Today, the flower represents unity and hope in the face of adversity. Fantastic work by our artists, instructors, and the community that has come together to rally around Valeriya and her family. 🌻🌻🌻

🚨 TRAFFIC ALERT 🚨 For the rest of this week, there is an updated traffic pattern at Herrick Park Intermediate Learning Center. Right now, Consumers Energy crews are working at the corner of Outer Drive and Herrick Park Drive. They will be working on this project for the rest of the week. Outer Drive at Herrick Park Drive will be closed during this time. That means drivers who are picking up their children on Herrick Park ILC property will have to come from the east side of Outer Drive (entrance at Inner Drive and Center Drive). When leaving Herrick Park ILC, you have to turn right, which is the same way you came in. Buses will have to enter and leave the same way. Please be patient during this brief construction period. Tecumseh Police will be on hand to help with traffic. Thank you for your understanding.
