A THS freshman will work with a local business owner to restore the Chief Tecumseh statue from Compass Early Learning Center. The base of the statue experienced significant decay, causing the statue to topple in early July. Upon completion, it will be returned to the main entrance of Compass Learning Center.
Summer is a busy time in our schools. Several maintenance and improvement projects are underway, including two significant projects at Compass Learning Center.
Check here for Open House dates and school supply lists.
