On Monday, the Board of Education approved a new boiler for the Tecumseh Community Pool. Several days later, it's already here! As most of you are aware, the outgoing boiler has pretty much reached the end of its life. We bid it farewell. This project is getting underway, and the whole process will take a month or less to complete. Pool operations should not be affected by the project. We think pool director Sarah Eubanks is pretty happy!

Right now, Leadership students from Tecumseh High School are doing their part to maybe ease the awkwardness and anxiety for our youngest Tecumseh Middle School students. They're creating Puberty Kits for 5th graders. These types of kits usually consist of things like deodorant, body wash, and other products. If you're interested in helping out, the Leadership class has created an Amazon Wish List. We're looking to collect items by February 10th. Thanks!

Students from Siena Heights University and Adrian College popped in for a visit yesterday at Tecumseh Middle School. The college students are soon-to-be teachers and worked with the TMS Educators Rising Club on a project. Our students created poster-size bulletin boards focused on a children’s story. The group works with our middle schoolers on the best skills and strategies to read aloud a book to young students. Teacher and advisor Jennifer Gentry led the way, guiding students on questions and other details.

Art students this week have been working on artist maquettes. This project is part of Christine Obeid’s Art and Design class at Tecumseh High School. A maquette is a model for a larger piece of sculpture, created to visualize how it might look and to work out approaches and materials for how it might be made. Students have been creating miniatures in honor of famous artists, including Vincent van Gogh, Marc Chagall, Rembrandt, and Leonardo da Vinci. They’re working together to create these pieces and are showing their creativity in their work.
