Today is School Principals' Day! Principals are some of the hardest working, yet can be one of the most underappreciated people in the education system. Without principals, a school would not operate on a daily basis. They implement their vision through dedication and determination to provide students and teachers with a successful and positive environment. Thank you, TPS principals!

A couple of months ago, the Art Club at Tecumseh High School held a crayon donation drive to assemble art kits with crayons and sketchbooks. Following a massive response from the community and THS, the Art Club was fortunate enough to donate significantly to the Neighbors of Hope, Women’s & Children’s Ministry. Thank you to everyone who donated and the students who put together these kits to brighten some children's day. #TecumsehPublicSchools #TecumsehHighSchool #artdonationdrive #artclub
We thank our office staff at each building for their hard work and dedication to service on Administrative Professionals Day. They professionally serve the needs of our students, families, and TPS staff. You are the glue that holds our team together. Thank you for your service to TPS!
Sutton Early Learning Center students blew off some steam last week by engaging in some STEAM. It was an evening filled with fun and learning! Students and parents joined teachers for STEAM night. The event featured fun activities focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. There were incredible activity stations where students and their families could participate in. Great job by STEM teacher Laurie Hubbard, who helped set up the event, the STEAM committee, Sutton PTO, and all the volunteers for making the night a great success!
Our new School Resource Officer is holding presentations at Tecumseh Middle School about the dangers of bullying. Sgt. Scott Lambka from the Tecumseh Police Department has been discussing bullying and its relation to ethnic intimidation, cyberbullying, and its impact on our school system. The goal is to educate our students on how to identify bullying, respond to it, and come together and get bullying out of our school and community.
Select 6th-grade band students from Tecumseh Middle School performed great at the Lenawee County 6th Grade Honors Band hosted by Adrian College. This event didn't just feature our students but also TMS band director Kellie McInchak. The event was designed by Mrs. McInchak to fill the gap between beginning band and middle school-level honors bands/festivals put on by the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association (MSBOA). Besides TPS, Britton Deerfield, Blissfield, and Sand Creek student musicians took part in the event. Each TMS musician in the ensemble has two years of experience.
Some of our 7th and 8th grade Tecumseh Middle School band students recently participated in an honors band performance. This select group of students participated in the Lenawee County Middle School Honors Band hosted by Madison School District. The band was under the direction of Dennis Kozian. This is an excellent achievement as students in this group are accepted into the honors band based on teacher nomination.
No, it wasn't our high schoolers taking a college visit. It was some of our third graders from Patterson Intermediate Learning Center. The third graders visited Adrian College today! They learned about the opportunities of going to college, met some of the staff and students, and toured the college a little bit.
Congratulations to the Tecumseh High School Senior String Quintet. The group was nominated for the 2023 MSBOA Outstanding Ensemble Competition! MSBOA is the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association. The group of five nailed it, receiving the highest ratings at District and State Solo and Ensemble. Just 53 instrumental ensembles from the state were nominated, and these five were one of them. The quintet recorded a performance and sent it to a panel of judges hoping to be selected to perform at a competition at Western Michigan University soon. Congrats again to Redd Braun, Julia Cifaldi, Vera Denison, Madeline McRoberts, and Ruth Fults.
Last week, members from Tecumseh Choirs performed ‘Cabaret’ at Tecumseh High School. It was a great turnout, as quite a few students took the stage and performed in front of family, friends, and classmates. To view some of the performances, check out our YouTube page ⬇ https://bit.ly/3GDGVyH
There's NO SCHOOL on Friday, April 7. Enjoy the long weekend!
Some special guests stopped by Tecumseh Acres Early Learning Center today to read to students. Student-athletes from the Tecumseh High School Girls Varsity Soccer team read to students in several classrooms. But that wasn't the whole visit. The student-athletes took over the gym for a little bit to play with the kids.
Today is Instructional Assistant Appreciation Day! IA's help students one-on-one, help those with developmental and academic needs, assist with full classroom activities, and much more. The work is essential to our students' learning, development, and success. Thank you for all your hard work!
TPS families: We are keeping track of potential inclement weather on Wednesday, April 5. Right now, we could see storms rolling through our area during school hours tomorrow. That said, we want to reassure families that each building has a storm preparedness plan and that staff regularly review it, including running drills. We are in constant communication with the transportation department. If the weather turns dangerous during dismissal time, we will reevaluate our release plans, and if any adjustments are made, we will notify you. Besides email, text, and phone calls, please continue monitoring our social media pages, TPS website, and app for updates. Thank you!
Spring break went by way too fast.
March is wrapping up, but we couldn't forget to show our PBIS leaders for the month at Sutton Early Learning Center. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. These leaders work daily to be safe, kind, and responsible.
