Hello and Happy New Year!

At TPS, we are happy to welcome our new Board of Education members. January is School Board Recognitions Month and, as a TPS family, we would like to recognize the Board and thank them for their commitment to serving our community.

Help Tecumseh South Earn a Bench

Tecumseh South Early Learning Center is embarking on a project in partnership with Green Tree Plastics, a company that produces products from 100% recycled plastics. The ABC program (A Bench for Caps) is a cap and lid program that is specifically designed to be a tool for hands-on learning about caring for our earth. This is done by having our learners be the primary "workers" in collecting, sorting and weighing the caps and lids that will be recycled into a bench for our school.

Once we have met the weight requirement for our bench, the caps and lids will be delivered to Green Tree Plastics.

Caps and lids (in bags or boxes) can be dropped off to your classroom teacher and/or Mrs. Dieter's office. If you have any questions you can contact Holly Cosgro or Sue Dieter.

Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarships provide a great opportunity for learners to earn money to help pay for a post-secondary education. While most scholarships are available for seniors intending to enroll in a college or university, there are opportunities available for learners interested in furthering their education in the trades.

If you are planning to attend college, it is also important to look for scholarships through the school you plan to attend. This information is typically available on the college's website or by contacting the admissions department.

It's important that learners take the time to review the application materials carefully to be sure that they meet the requirements, they share the required information neatly and correctly, and submit their materials before deadline. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact your guidance counselor.

The list of available scholarships is updated frequently, so be sure to check the Scholarship page often.
