Learning For All ~ Whatever It Takes!

From the Superintendent

Veterans Day Program

It’s been an exciting time for our district as we have the opportunity to reignite with the community. The pandemic we experienced over the last couple of years deterred many events from occuring and we are thrilled to be able to bring these events back again! One of the events we had to forego the last several years included our Veterans Day Programs. Our recognition and gratitude for our area veterans has been a tradition at Tecumseh Local Schools for many years. We were pleased to be able to offer the Veterans Day Programs once again this year. A Veterans Day Program was held at Tecumseh High School, Tecumseh Middle School, Donnelsville Elementary School, New Carlisle Elementary School, and Park Layne Elementary School on Veterans Day, Friday November 11th. The programs were staggered in time, so veterans could attend one, or all of the programs if they wished. Many veterans spent the day navigating from one school to another to enjoy the programs held in their honor. Veterans were invited by a student or staff member, yet all veterans from the community were invited to attend as well. The veterans in attendance ranged from a few who served during the Korean War in the early 1950’s to veterans serving currently.

    Our AFJROTC cadets honored the attending veterans at Tecumseh High School by performing the folding of the flag ceremony, while Senior ARJROTC Instructor, Major Doug Couch, solemnly recited the meaning behind each of the thirteen folds. The flag is folded in remembrance of the original thirteen colonies and there is a specific meaning behind each fold.     Our students sang patriotic songs, which they had practiced for weeks ahead of the programs, at the middle and elementary schools. The hallways were adorned with patriotic decorations created by the students, along with photos of many of our veterans in attendance. Thank you cards were personally handed to our veterans by our youngest Arrows. To culminate the final program at Park Layne Elementary School, the military song “Taps” was played while students, staff members, and veterans stood in honor of those veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The silence emanated throughout the room as attendees mourned those who did not make it home. Many eyes glistened.

    We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate and honor our veterans again this year.  Additionally, we are confident that by doing so, we instill in our students an understanding of what it means to be a veteran. Perhaps, they may take the time in the future to say, “Thank you for your service,” when they have the opportunity.

Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to Tecumseh Local Schools! Tecumseh Local School district serves almost 2,900 students. Our high school and middle school students are served at Tecumseh High School and Tecumseh Middle School, located on the main campus. Our students in grades second through fifth are served at Donnelsville and New Carlisle Elementary School. Our kindergarten and first graders are served at Park Layne Elementary School.  Our community has provided our students with modern facilities with the passage of the Ohio School Commission building project in 2003.

    We have a talented and dedicated group of staff members who go above and beyond to meet the needs of our students. Our Board of Education, leadership teams, along with members of our staff and community, developed our strategic planning framework. Our work at the district centers around one of the four goal areas; academic growthwellnessfiscal responsibility and community engagement. There is a committee of staff and community members for each of these four areas. If you have an interest in being on one of these committees, or would like more information, please email me at [email protected]

    Again, on behalf of the Board of Education and our staff members, I welcome you to Tecumseh Local Schools!
