  • The boys basketball team lost a close match to Illing middle school yesterday 55-52.  A balanced offense and some pressure defense kept the Cougars in the game but they just couldn’t get the win. 

  • The lady Cougars took to the court last night for the first game of the season. Unfortunately they came out on the losing end, falling to the Rams of Illing. Angie Santiago and Reagan Heafy-Deangelis led the team in scoring with five points each, while Nour Abanasra, Nadine Abunasra both added 2. 6th graders Avery Brochu and Erin Martin had 2 points a piece. Kaitlyn Bullock made one of two free throws to finish out the scoring. The Lady Cougars hit the hardwood again the first day back from break hosting Tollland. Come out and cheer on the girls.

  • Good Morning!!! I am Nolan, I am Isha, and I am Hailey.  Peer Mediation is proudly sponsoring the annual  PJ Day for the Kids to be held this Friday, December 13th.  We 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 9th 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. 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. 13th, 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!
