8th graders at West STEAM Center learning about golf this week. Health and PE teacher Kristy Zajac created a 9-hole course, called Tecumseh West Golf Course. The project is aimed at teaching students the rules, etiquette and proper form and techniques of golf. Students start out at the designed driving range and then they take part in the 9-hole course. It's a great way for the students to learn about golf and get outside and enjoy the better weather we're having.

Welcome back TPS students and staff! We hope you had a great winter break.
Some of our students at West STEAM Center got the chance to learn CPR. They even learned the Stayin' Alive technique. Chest compressions should be given at a rate of about 120 per minute. The oft-heard advice that the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees provides a good metronome for hands-only CPR is still valid. Just proof that disco songs can help keep someone alive.
