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.

Today we share a story of kindness and generosity! Tippecanoe Middle School 8th grader Ava Hanrahan had an idea for a community service project and after speaking with her principal Diane Voress this is what happened! Ava asked her classmates and TMS staff to donate items for the Miami County Animal Shelter in Troy. She hoped to get about fifty items but far exceeded her expectations! Boxes she and her mother decorated are overflowing with toys, treats, food, blankets, and more. Donations are still being added. The family intends to load the donations after school on Friday. #WEareTIPP
