Tecumseh Public Schools would like to announce that First Federal Bank has made a 5 year sponsorship commitment to the district. In becoming one of our lead sponsors, First Federal Bank will be directly contributing to the completion of the two Collaboration Labs at Tecumseh East and West STEAM Centers.

They will also be contributing to the district by bringing in financial literacy classes and financial career exploration opportunities for our learners. While this is initially a 5-year agreement, we see this relationship lasting well into the future.

“First Federal Bank is thrilled to be part of this exciting learning experience for Tecumseh Schools,” said Marybeth Shunck, Market Area President for the First Federal Bank, “Our hope is that sponsoring these interactive and engaging learning centers will translate to continued growth for the Tecumseh community.”

The TPS Strategic Design, developed in August 2016 in conjunction with staff and stakeholders, calls for a new vision of how we will educate our learners, both in and out of the traditional school setting. Our Design calls for building a learning community that creates partnerships and supports the mission and vision of the district. We are focused on creating individuals that are inspired and empowered for life in all of their spheres of living. Having a community partner like First Federal Bank become a lead sponsor shows their commitment to our mission and vision and will help prepare our learners for their future lives.


Reorganization Update

We received a lot of questions about the start and end times for the district next school year from the parents touring Compass Learning Center last week. So here is a quick reminder of how we will be set up for the 2017-18 school year.

Tecumseh High School
7:45 am - 2:45 pm

Tecumseh East STEAM Center
7:35 am - 2:30 pm 

Tecumseh West STEAM Center
7:35 am - 2:30 pm 

Tecumseh Compass Learning Center
8:45 am - 3:50 pm 

Tecumseh North Early Learning Center
8:35 am - 3:40 pm 

Tecumseh South Early Learning Center
8:25 am - 3:30 pm 

These start and end times are staggered to assist in transportation for both busses and for parents. Throughout this process we looked at all of the potential configurations for our bussing runs and possible start times. After receiving a large amount of community input we decided that the best route forward at this time was to keep our start times as consistent as possible.

Please feel free to review the process so far or to leave a comment at the 
Reorganization Website.

Thank you again for your continued support of TPS.

On June 28th at the Union School nine young men and women participated in the first ever commencement of Tecumseh High School. Seven men and two women received diplomas in the classical course and English. It was 1866. Now 150 years later more than 270 are set to follow in their footsteps on June 4th.

This series of articles will look back decade by decade at some of the most prominent graduates of Tecumseh High School leading up to the graduation of this year’s class.
