  • Good Morning TEMS -  I’d like to acknowledge students who have done something pretty special.  These students wanted to be a part of a Lego/Robotics club but since TEMS does not offer this, they took it upon themselves to start one and have a group of parents be their coaches.  They worked hard at night and on the weekend and made it to the World Festival.  There they placed second among 150 teams representing Connecticut.  They even got to hang out with members of our SWHS Robotics Team.  Congratulations to the following students:  Sivani Arvapalli, Tracy Doan, Vrishab Murali, Aarav Nair, Daniel Wang, Michael Ngo, Pranav Ramesh, Samarth Masarur, Sidarth Masarur – your perseverance displays your extraordinary enthusiasm and spirit.  Please come to the Main Office to see Mrs. Larson following announcements.
  • On another note, attention MathCounts students.  You are all invited to attend the May 22nd Board of Education Meeting at TEMS ALT 6 – beginning at 7:00 pm.  Mr. Denker, Mrs. Goldman, Mr. Smith Horn and I will be there as Dr. Carter will spotlight all MathCounts Club participants.

  • The Softball team lost a tough game yesterday versus Sage Park Middle School.  The girls faced an outstanding pitcher, and fought hard, but ultimately couldn't create enough offense to win the game.  The Cougars did jump out to a quick lead when Lindsey Carter drilled a triple off the wall, driving in Lyndsay Donston, but went scoreless through the middle of the game.  Bridget Doherty, Josie Foley, and Olivia Strout helped paced the offense with hard hits.  Grace Benashski, Aricka Boosa, and Abbie Taylor made great plays in the field.  The girls look to get back on track Friday, home, against East Hartford.

  • The Timothy Edwards baseball team had a dramatic, come from behind, walk off victory against Ellington on Thursday afternoon.  Peyton West led off the bottom of the 9th by ripping a single to center field.  2 outs later, West found himself on third base when Joey Bates stepped to the plate.  Bates had hit the ball hard all day and was looking to end the game in front of the capacity crowd.  He crushed a single to right as West raced home with the winning run for the Cougars. On the mound, Nick Worthington and Jack Albert combined to limit the Jaguars to 2 hits and 1 run over the final 6 innings.  Jack Whitlock chipped in with 2 singles and Drew Mabey played well defensively.  TE improves to 2 wins and one loss on the season.  The Cougars are at home on Monday versus Sage Park.  

  • The Cougar softball team defeated Ellington yesterday by a score of 7-3.  Bridget Doherty lead the offense with three hits while Olivia Strout, Alexa Kimball, Julissa Claudio, Abbie Taylor and Grace Benashski also contributed offensively.  Lyndsay Donston made a diving stop at shortstop, while Josey Foley and Lindsey Carter teamed up for a spectacular out at home plate.  The girls have a home game today after school, wish them luck!
