"I opened up my classroom door for the first time in 2022 to a new Smartboard!" LT Ball Intermediate teacher Kem Fischer says, "The students and I are thrilled with the new board. The color, clarity, touchscreen, and display for student engagement are amazing. Best present ever!! Six boards were installed in LT Ball classrooms over the break. LTPA contributed to this project using donations from last year's successful Read-A-Thon.
The district has 14 new hands-free bottle filling stations thanks to Monroe Township Board of Trustees! The board appropriated nearly $30,000 in CARES Act Funds for Tipp City Schools to purchase the touchless water dispensers. #WEareTIPP #TogetherweareExtraordinary
The Tippecanoe High School wrestling team competed at the 56 team GMVWA Holiday Tournament. Tippecanoe placed 16th in their division with freshman Alex Shellhammer (175) placing 8th. He is the first freshman in Tippecanoe history to place at the tournament. Great Job! #WEareTIPP
Thank you to the Tipp City United Methodist Church for making a vision come to reality. The church recently collaborated with several others in our community to improve safety for our students who are traversing on and off the field at City Park. In collaboration with the City of Tipp City - Government, Tipp City Schools, Tipp Pride, and Tipp City Music Boosters , a concrete pad was poured to join sidewalks to the turf field. This makes it safer for the students and allows others (especially those requiring wheelchairs) to enter the field with confidence. Thank you to Dan Glover, Pastor at TCUMC; Greg Moehl, Family Ministry Pastor at TCUMC; Mike Chaney, Tippecanoe Music Boosters President and church member; Keith Lavy, Classic Concrete and church member; Tony Hunt, City of Tipp City. This is shining example of our community spirit!

Today Tippecanoe High School homebuilding teacher James Kitchen and two of his students presented the Tipp City Police Department and Tipp City Fire Department with a special holiday gift. Students enrolled in the THS Homebuilding Class handcrafted wooden flags made with 90-year-old reclaimed wood. Tenth grader Emma Hanrahan and her brother 12th grader Collin thanked the police officers and firefighters for their dedication, service, and commitment to the safety of our community. Part of Mr. Kitchen's mission is to encourage his students to always give back. We think he succeeded!
Tipp City Schools completed its safety drill that took place at Tippecanoe Middle School. The drill included the release of chemical fumes in the building. Students and staff evacuated the building. Police, fire, and rescue responded to the drill. Safety is a top priority for our students, staff, and community. Practicing scenarios, such as this, is an important step in ensuring they can react quickly and appropriately in an actual emergency.
At this time, Tipp City Schools is conducting an emergency safety drill as part of our preparedness plan. Local police, fire, and other emergency crews are responding to the incident. The district will provide updates when available. Thank you.
