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!

The CISTA Family Safety Night was supported by Sandoval’s ATA, the Tecumseh Police Department, and LEEP (Law Enforcement Education Program). Master Sandoval and Miss Horn shared basic self-defense techniques with participants from all four elementary schools. Officer Helm discussed with students various ways to stay alert and safe when they are riding their bikes or walking around town. Tom and Sylvia Jenkins gave parents some peace of mind in the form of digital fingerprints saved to a disc for each child.

Each year second grade students from all four elementary buildings participate in a Community Walk coordinated by CISTA. The students learn about historic and government entities in Tecumseh and tour some local businesses. Businesses and city services that partnered with CISTA’s Community Walk this school year include; Brookside Cemetery, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Tecumseh District Library, the Quilt Patch, Spotted Cow, Tecumseh Police Department (TPD), the Tecumseh Post Office, Tecumseh Vet Hospital, Busch’s, Tecumseh Center for the Arts, and Paws 4 Grooming. Student’s learned about Brownville School at Gloria Dei, saw the historic vault at the Spotted Cow, were awed by the colors at the Quilt Patch, and received tours at the TPD and the Tecumseh Post Office. Students continued to take part in community businesses by having lunch at Basil Boys. We are very thankful for the use of their banquet room.

Thank you to the many businesses, tour guides, teachers, and parents that make this learning experience enriching and positive!
