Tecumseh North Elementary
Today is a GREAT day to be a PANTHER, and I choose to LIVE ABOVE THE LINE!
A Message from Principal Bivens
December is a busy month with wrapping up the second quarter, completing assessments and monitoring our students' academic growth, and celebrating everything that comes with the holiday season. We will conclude our annual PTO Holiday Shoppe this week, which has been so much fun, and move on to Pancakes and PJs with Santa next Thursday, December 15th from 5:30-7:30pm. We close out the month with our 1st and 2nd grade music program on Tuesday, December 20th, and our Sing-A-Long with Santa at 2:15pm on Wednesday, December 21st. Holiday parties will be before or after the Sing-A-Long. Please contact your student's teacher for your student's party time.
Lastly, please enjoy this special time with your loved ones. The magic of the holiday season comes and goes quickly. Before you know it, we will be on to Spring Break and wrapping up the 22/23 school year!
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or clarifications, please do not hesitate to reach out! I am here to help!

Keys of Excellence
December Key- This is it!
Focus your attention on the present moment. Keep a positive attitude. This Is It! is about focusing on NOW instead of later, or next week, or next month, or next year, or yesterday, etc., and making the most of it. A positive This Is It! attitude can make everything we do and every day productive, fulfilling, and fun!
January Key - Commitment
Take positive action. Follow your vision without wavering.The decisive act of making a commitment—when we decide to do “whatever it takes” to reach a goal—sets in motion an energy field that propels us forward on our path. At each step along the way, our commitment inspires us to take positive action and overcome obstacles, and pushes us on until we “make it happen.”

Your student is receiving a special gift this holiday season. . . the joy of giving! Tecumseh North Elementary PTO is providing your child the chance to shop and wrap for their loved ones with our very own Holiday Shoppe. The PTO will give each student $5 to shop, but families are welcome to send additional money in to shop with.
Important tips to create a memorable experience for your child and for you!
1. Plan and budget with your child using the money envelope provided.
2. Every gift is inexpensive, with NOTHING over $5!
3. Join the fun and excitement, sign up to help other students shop and wrap during the Holiday Shoppe.
4. Ask your child why they chose the gift for you. . . their smile when they explain why is the real gift!
Check out some of the gifts we will have this year. . .
AND REMEMBER, nothing is over $5!!
AND SO MUCH MORE!
