  • We can't believe it's here but today is the last day for our Fit A Thon!  Thanks for embracing this new Virtual format for our fundraiser and Thank you for all of your hard work, we are just $420 short of our $12,000 goal!  There is still time to get additional pledges in through Saturday and to log in any activity minutes!  If you have any pictures of you participating in activities that you would like to share to be added to the yearbook please send them to Mr. Goric. A Huge Congratulations to Emery Forko in 6th Grade who raised over $2,000 for our school!  Incredible!!  Team Evergreen is in the lead for the DQ Blizzard vouchers which will be announced on Monday! And now for our final Fit A Thon raffle.  All students that have met their personal fundraising goal of $50 have been automatically entered. Winners may pick up their prizes in the office after 10am. Good luck! The 3 lucky winners of $50 Amazon gift cards are...Soniya Patel Grade 7, Christianna Macchi Grade 8 and Nolan Charron Grade 6. Congratulations to all of our raffle winners.  And a big thank you to everyone who has helped to make our Fit A Thon a success so far. There's still time to get those pledges online or in school!!  Have a Great Weekend!
  • Last spring, you may remember Mrs. Morgan-Hostetler coming on the air to talk about recent events that were taking place in our country and how TE was looking for students who were interested in helping our community engage in conversations about racism, the role of race in our society and student activism. We are looking to continue that group and add other students who are interested in brainstorming ideas on changes we can make at TE to be more inclusive and understanding of all who are part of our community. If you are interested, please join the “Make a Change” classroom using code:  c23gpkr Please do this by Tuesday, November 3rd.  In the classroom, you will find information about our first meeting. If you are unsure of what this will be about, join the class, come to our first meeting and then decide if it is right for you. If you would like to ask some questions prior to the first meeting, please email Mrs. Kozik at tkozik@swindsor.k12.ct.us .

  • We are in the home stretch for our Fit A Thon Fundraiser and we are so close to our $12,000 goal with $10.740!  We are $1,260 away from our goal!  We need a big push the last few days to hit our goal!  Remember our goal is for each student to raise at least $50.  Email grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors. We want to give a shout out to our three current top fundraising students from each grade!. Congratulations to Emory Forko  in Grade 6 who is the overall leader and has raised over $1,950 dollars for our school!  Absolutely incredible! In 7th Grade we have Payton Beaudreau in the lead and in 8th grade we have Jesse Lessard but there are several students in both 7th and 8th that are close behind these students!   Awesome job guys!!!  Remember the top fundraiser from each grade earns a $100 cash prize! As for the Team prize for DQ Blizzard vouchers, Team Evergreen is in the lead, with over $2,000 raised, but Lime and Pacific could creep up from behind!  Keep sharing your fundraising webpage with family and friends. Don’t forget, there is only one more chance to win a raffle prize. This Friday we will be raffling three $50 Amazon gift cards for students that have met their $50 donation goal, so keep getting those donations! Good Luck!
