  • The girls soccer team hosted rivals Ellington on Tuesday afternoon in a physical match up. The Cougars were disciplined between the lines and battled to get on the score sheet early in the first half. Julia Jaworski, Mikayla Evans, Leighana Ferrabelo, and Cassie Polansky all had outstanding performances throughout the game. The Cougars were able to pull away with only a few minutes left in the first half as Emerson Iacovelli assisted Arden Sansom to put the Cougars ahead. Throughout the second half, the Cougars displayed their dominance putting another three on the board before the final whistle. Katelyn Roux scored an incredible solo goal as she swerved the ball into the top corner from outside the box. Sam Grodovich assisted Emerson Iacovelli mid-way through the second half, and Arden Sansom put the icing on the cake tallying another late goal securing the Cougar victory. Throughout the match, the Cougar defense locked down any threats of an Ellington attack and played confident between the lines. Haley Butler kept the Cougars composed and was able to maintain the clean sheet with 8 saves on the day. The Cougars host their last home game of the season vs. Illing this afternoon. Come out and support the team.   

  • The TE boys soccer team took on the Wildcats of Ellington last night coming from behind to earn three points with a 3-2 victory. The Cougars allowed two first half goals for the first time all season, But they roared back in the second half to earn the win. Drew Monteserin found the back of the net early in the second half. Then it was Taylor Legault's turn after a nice passage of play along the right side of the field. Alex Ezedine started the move, Naol Tirfessa played a cheeky pass to Monteserin who crossed it into the box where Legault hammered it home sweetly. The third and final goal was Ezedine's by himself. He found himself in the box and slotted the ball past the keeper. The Cougars next game is on Thursday at Illing Middle School in Manchester.

  • Good Morning TE!  My name is Kat and my name is Hannah. We are 6th graders  and members of Girl Scout Troop 10943.  Our troop recently heard about a fellow TE student who experienced a fire in their home. We really want to help during this difficult time!  And we are hoping all of TE will want to help too.  Please consider donating a dollar (or more if you can) tomorrow that we can give the family to make this time a little easier.  Please bring your donation to your homeroom teacher tomorrow morning.  Your teacher will give you a sticker to wear that shows that you donated. There is a famous quote that shows how far $1 can go.  “Individually, we are one drop.  But together we are an ocean”  Let’s work together to do something big for this family. We hope you can make a small donation tomorrow and our TE classmate will see how much we all care. Thank you for helping!

  • Another congratulations goes out to the girls cross country team for their win against JFK yesterday.  Shennyn Giannelli was up front and all alone crossing the finish in just over 11 minutes.  Molly Caron pushed her way into the second position overall followed by Taylor Lord in third, both helping the team to their 15 to 47 win.  Two standout runs were made by 6th graders Sophia Gordon and Sophia Holovatska, who both moved up several positions within the team rankings.  The cougars look forward to the Harry Geraghty Invitational this Saturday at Nevers Park.  Good luck to all runners this weekend!  Just a reminder, there will be no cross country practice today, so please go home on your regular buses.

  • Attention all basketball fans! The 9th annual Kenny Offiaeli 3 on 3 tournament will be held on Friday November 8th in the main gym from 5:30-8:00. Forms are available in the girls and boys locker rooms.  All forms are due to the main office by Friday October 18th!  More information will be provided in your PE classes.  

  • Monday afternoon was hot and humid but it wasn't able to stifle the boys cross country team, as they traveled to Enfield to notch their second victory of the season.  Sean Habeeb ran a smart race to pull away for the overall victory and Carlo Papa ran a great race to secure a third place finish and help the Cougars to a 19 to 43 win over JFK.  Blake Wool went out fast and finished well with an 8th place finish and Junior Heredia cruised in for a top 15 placement.  Elijah Chaimovitch showed smooth finishing speed by passing a couple JFK runners in the final moments even with only one good eye.  The boys will be back in action Saturday morning at Nevers park for their first invitational meet of the season.

  • TE Field Hockey team played their first game of the season at JFK of Enfield. The Patriots first drive came up quick but the Cougars defense shut them down with leadership of goalie Angelina Bellizzi. TE took control of the game shortly after with a quick goal by Rachel Turrer.  Scoring second for the Cougars was Abby Bergstrom, her first of two on the day. Avery Yelle scored twice, including a beautiful one time rocket shot with an assist by Rachel Turrer. Also scoring was Hailey Deptula, Sarah Stoddard, Meredith Pinto and Jillian Yelle. TE finished with a score of 9-0, Angelina Bellizzi was credited with the shutout. In the second game TE came out with a 0-0 tie. Playing well for the cougars was Caroline Jacobs, Izzy Dzubin, Kaleigh Aparo and Grace Perkins. Elsa Gately was credited with the shutout in her first appearance in goal. TE plays Suffield at home on Thursday. Come out and support the cougars!!

  • Good morning! Do you like to help others solve problems? Are you a good listener who can listen without taking sides? Are you a positive role model? Are you trustworthy and can you keep confidentiality? Do you take peoples' problems seriously? If you have answered yes to all, then it sounds like you may be interested in filling out an application to become a Peer Mediator. It’s that time of year for any 6th grader who’s interested in becoming a Peer mediator to apply now! Not sure what to do? Well, first of all, you need to complete a Peer Mediation Application Packet which you can get from your Social Studies teacher on your team. When the application is fully completed, your counselor or Social Studies teacher will turn it in for you to Mrs. Zalaski. Next, you will be contacted for an interview. After the interviews have taken place and all applications have been processed, you will be notified as to whether or not you have been selected to serve as a TEMS Peer Mediator.  Applications should be turned in NO LATER THAN Friday, October 4th. Good luck to all applicants!
