TE Morning News - September 10, 2019 
  • Good morning! I am Alyssa Mazzie and I am Medha Bommasamudra. We are Peer Mediators and we’re here to announce that Pinwheels For Peace are coming back! TEMS will be, once again, participating in this worldwide art project to help spread the message of peace to our school and community. Tomorrow morning, you will be receiving blank pinwheels in your homeroom to decorate.  Details and instructions on how to decorate your pinwheel will be given out by your homeroom teacher. Please make sure that you complete a pinwheel so you can be a part of the beautiful display that will be in front of the school during the last week in September. Let’s make a difference and share our hopes for a more peaceful community and world!

  • Are you interested in acceptance and equality for all? A new club, the GSA, which stands for Gay-Straight Alliance, will be having its first meeting on Wednesday, September 18th.The GSA at TE provides a safe and welcoming space for any student who wants to talk about issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. We seek to provide a safe space for students to meet, support each other, and talk about issues faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) community. During our meetings, we will play games, do team-building activities, and talk about what’s going on in our lives. Through our club, we hope to build a judgment-free community of friends and allies who support one another. It does not matter how you identify; anyone can attend and everyone is welcome. If you have any questions about the GSA, please see Mrs. Gulick in Room 352 (Indigo Team). We look forward to seeing you at our first meeting on Wednesday, September 18th.

  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have Pasta with Meatballs, in the Grill line you can have Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of sandwiches. Have a great day, and remember to always strive for 5!
