The Sculpture Garden at Tecumseh High School is about to receive a huge facelift. Phase Three of the Sculpture Garden is nearing completion. Last week, the construction of the amphitheater at the garden began and is moving along nicely. Last August, the art department received a very generous anonymous donation of $30,000. That money is being put to great use as it completely pays for the construction and concrete seating. This project is spearheaded by THS art instructors Christine Obeid and Jackie Whiteley, along with retired art teacher Ron Frenzen. The Sculpture Garden has come a long way over the past several years. The area is open to the public. Please stop by and check it out!

Summer school ends on Thursday, so today was the final field trip for students. While our 5-8 grade students were out kayaking/canoeing, our K-4 students were learning about fire safety from the Tecumseh Fire Department. The students learned more about stop, drop and roll, get out of a burning building safely, smoke alarms, and more. However, the best part was a tour of the firehouse! Students were able to climb into a fire truck and take a quick peek inside. They also learned more about the gear firefighters use daily as part of their job. While we were there, students waved bye as a fire engine had to head out to a call. It was a great field trip for our students as summer school ends.

During summer school this week, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students learned about the spiny softshell turtle. The turtle can be found in the River Raisin watershed. The students took what they learned and created their own turtle from clay! The spiny softshell turtle is one of the largest freshwater turtle species in North America. The turtle has a flat, leathery shell with very flexible edges. It somewhat resembles a pancake.

This Memorial Day, we remember and honor all those who have died in service to the United States during peace and war. Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. It began during the Civil War when citizens placed flowers on the graves of those who had been killed in battle. After World War I, it came to be observed in honor of those who had died in all U.S. wars, and its name changed to Memorial Day. Memorial Day is observed with the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, and by religious services, parades, and speeches nationwide. #MemorialDay #rememberandhonor
