The concession stand at Tecumseh Middle School is looking a little different these days. Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh Key Club members, Allie and Elle, were working concessions the other day and felt the concession stand needed a facelift. Their work has definitely livened up the area a bit more. Tecumseh Middle School Builders Club and Key Club members run the concession stand during every home game. The TMS Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school students. One of the great things about this club is that it's student run!

The American Red Cross is in urgent need of blood donations. The non-profit organization says they’re heading into Christmas with its lowest blood supply in more than a decade at this time of the year. That’s because of low blood donor turnout in recent months. Here’s the thing, you can help out. Usually there’s a blood drive always happening in your area. On Friday, December 10th, Tecumseh High School will be hosting one. The blood drive begins at 9am and will run until 2pm. The blood drive is open to students 17 and older as well as the public. Students who are age 16 may also donate but will need parent/guardian permission. Those forms can be found at the main office of THS. We also ask that you schedule an appointment ahead of time. Just remember, a pint of blood can save three lives! 🏫: Tecumseh High School 📍: 760 Brown Street, Tecumseh, MI 49286 ⌚: 9am-2pm To schedule an appointment ⬇ https://www.redcrossblood.org/

With some snow likely in the forecast, the rush is on to get those pesky leaves out of yards. Luckily, students from Tecumseh Middle School have been helping out some of the elderly residents within city limits with leaf pickup. It’s called Rake a Difference. This is something students at TMS have done for over two decades. The past several days, students have either walked or rode a bus to a location and worked together to pick up the leaves. They’re not the only ones working. Their teachers are getting in on the action. Everyone is working hard since the ground and leaves are soaking wet from yesterday’s rain. Rake a Difference is planned by the Tecumseh Middle School Builders Club. The club is the largest service organization for middle school students. What makes it even better is that the organization is run by our students. It’s open to all students at TMS. Great work, everyone!
A shoutout to Tecumseh Harley-Davidson Shop and Sunset Ridge BBQ for providing a free meal to our veterans on Thursday (11/11). Our ROTC students were able to help out, serving those who attended. Thank you for having us!
ROTC students from Tecumseh High School took part in the Veterans Day ceremony at Brookside Cemetery on Thursday (11/11).

Bronna Kahle, Lenawee County Sheriff Troy Bevier and Tecumseh Mayor Jack Baker we’re on-hand for the ceremony.
Today, we honor all of the Veterans who graciously served our country. We also want to recognize the Veterans who work for us here at Tecumseh Public Schools. Thank you for your service. Veterans Day honors the men and women from all branches of the military who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally called Armistice Day, November 11th marks the end of World War I, which occurred on November 11, 1918 at 11:00 a.m. In 1954, the holiday was renamed Veterans Day to pay tribute to the veterans of all wars. It is celebrated every November 11th, and has been a Federal holiday since 1926.
Lately, our middle school students have been learning how to play tennis. There are so many great reasons for kids to get involved in tennis that it is definitely worth teaching in PE at any grade level. Some of the numerous benefits of learning tennis are: • Tennis is fun, especially when kids are successful • Tennis is a great lifetime sport with lots of programs for all ages • Tennis is an aerobic sport, which promotes overall health and wellness • Tennis demands a lot of focus and concentration
