  • Good Morning TE,
    • As you are aware, we have practice drills regularly, both evacuation and lockdown.  During our last lockdown drill there were a few things that we saw which require more attention.  First of all, when you hear that a lockdown is being announced, you must remain calm and silent so that you can hear the directives of your teachers.  You are to remain out of sight of the doorway and silent throughout the drill so not to call attention to yourselves.  If you are in a stairwell and come to a team area where all doors are already shut, you can go to the nearest bathroom, kick out the doorjamb  so that the door will shut and lock,  go into a stall and remain silent until the lockdown is over.  Remember, we practice so that we know what to do in the event of an emergency.  Your safety is our number one priority.  We will be practicing a lockdown drill in the cafeteria in the near future. Here’s to making 2019 your best year yet!!  Have a great day, work hard and ALWAYS STRIVE FOR FIVE plus one!
  • Activity Night will take place next Friday, January 11 from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm.  We will have a DJ in the cafeteria so that we can dance, a movie in the library media center if you prefer a quiet activity and pin guard, whiffle ball, and volleyball in the gyms.  Tickets are $7.00 in advance and $10.00 at the door.  Ticket sales will start on Tuesday in the main lobby.  Buy your ticket and come join the fun.

  • And now here is Brian with the Joke of the week. Hey TE, are you ready for your weekly dose of cringe? What do you call Big Foot in pottery class?  Harry Potter! Brian Murdoch, TETV Morning News, Guys Back to You.

TEMS were led by Anna Matus with 11 points while Olivia Petgrave chipped in 7 and Princess Black scored a cool 6 off the bench. Ava Magarian and Jada Tran had two points each while Emerson Iacovelli made one of two free throws.  It was a tough game throughout as both teams played hard.

  • Friday, December 14th is PJ Day for the Kids Day! Hope you'll join in to support kids with Cancer while also raising funds, awareness, and hope! PJ Day for the Kids kicks off its 8th annual event with a mission to not only raise money, but to honor the brave kids fighting cancer and serious illnesses at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Join us as students and businesses across Connecticut wear their PJs for the kids. 
  • Wondering how this event started? A 2nd grader named Nick Wesoloskie decided he wanted to do something for kids when his baby sister, Charlotte, battled cancer. Thankfully, she is now cancer-free. He wanted to honor the survivors, those lost, and those still in the fight of their lives - in their PJs - for days, weeks or longer.
  • Since 2011, thousands of children in Connecticut have worn their pajamas to school in support of pediatric patients at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. To date, more than $375,000 has been raised for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders <https://www.connecticutchildrens.org/search-specialties/center-for-cancer-blood-disorders/>. Every year, PJ Day for the Kids inspires more and more school children and business leaders to become involved. 
  • We are stronger together and, with your help, our collective statewide support will continue to make a tremendous impact on the care Connecticut Children's can provide to thousands of children and families.
  • From new, safer, life-saving treatments and individual, targeted, genetic therapies to financial and emotional support for the entire family, your donations to PJ Day for the Kids are making a difference for the children we serve.
  • So, on Friday, Dec. 14th, donate $1 or more to wear your PJs in support of Connecticut Children's Medical Center Foundation. Thank you for your support in raising funds, awareness and hope for these brave kids!
  • Students are raising money to help out baby snow leopards. Bracelets are on sale for $2 in the mornings and during sixth grade flex between Sage and Lime teams. All donations will go to help the struggling snow leopard species. Thanks for your generosity!

  • Don't forget, MathCounts will meet tomorrow morning at 7:00 am.  This will be out last get together before the Holiday break.  See you at MathCounts tomorrow morning.  

  • Entertainers cast will meet after school in the auditorium for a preliminary script read-through. Cast members with named roles, please sit next to your double-cast mate if there is one.

  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have the Chicken Fajita, in the Grill line you can have Chicken Cordon Blue and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches.  Have a great day, do your best,  and remember to always strive for 5!
