Community Walk was learning experience for young students
To the Editor,
Communities In Schools of the Tecumseh Area’s CISTA, mission statement is “To surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.” Tecumseh is a wonderful community that definitely supports the programs that enrich the lives of children!
Our second grade students from Sutton and Herrick Park elementary buldings participated again this October in a Community Walk coordinated by CISTA. The students learn about history and government in Tecumseh and tour some local businesses. Businesses and city services that partnered with CISTA’s Community Walk this school year included:
Brookside Cemetery, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Tecumseh District Library, Tecumseh Historical Museum, Tecumseh Police Department, Tecumseh Post Office, Tecumseh Veterinary Hospital, Busch’s, The Tecumseh Herald, Tecumseh Center for the Arts, Companion Animal Clinic, and the Boulevard Market.
Students enjoyed a lunch at Basil Boys that is always a favorite and the Spotted Cow for ice cream. Thank you to all of these businesses for your time and commitment to Tecumseh students.
Thank you to the many businesses, tour guides, teachers, and parents that make this learning experience enriching and positive!
