TMS students travel to Gettysburg
To the Editor,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the adults, students, and local businesses who made the 2013 Tecumseh Middle School 8th grade trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania a wonderful success.
Sr. Master Sandoval’s ATA Black Belt Academy generously granted our trip the concession stand rights for the November, 2012 ATA Tournament held at Tecumseh High School. This alone allowed families and students the chance to earn over $800 to offset trip costs.
First Federal Bank invited our students and parents to work a craft booth at the Appleumpkin Festival and donated additional proceeds to our scholarship fund.
Lenawee Fuels/Perky Pantry helped secure funding that allowed us to provide more scholarships to students.
Lev’s Donuts donated donuts for us to sell at the ATA Tournament to help raise money.
Thank you also to all the parents and community members who donated box tops to our cause — every little bit helped!
Finally, thank you to the students for exhibiting mature, respectful and appreciative behavior while at Gettysburg and to the parent chaperones who made our trip flow that much smoother.
Next year we hope to add Washington, D.C. to our itinerary. Please go to the Tecumseh Middle School website, www.tps.k12.mi.us/web/our_schools/tms/index.html and check out the information on the Gettysburg/D.C. trip as it becomes available.
