  • We have been working with South Windsor Parks and Recreation to offer TE students an opportunity to participate in sports after school.  I am pleased to announce that an intramural program has been developed to provide interested students with such an opportunity.   I am grateful for the partnership and efforts of SW Parks and Recreation to support our students. All students participating in after-school intramural sports with the SW Rec Dept. should proceed to common area B after school. You will be called after buses leave to head out to the fields. If you have registered for after-school field hockey, you will be allowed to store your equipment in the gym's spectator area off of common area B if you'd like.  When you arrive at school, simply proceed to common B and an adult will show you where to put your things. After school is dismissed, you may retrieve your equipment.
