  • Military families help sustain our fighting force - those on whom we depend for the security and safety of our nation. It's not easy for  a child to have a relative that is deployed to serve our country and we want to honor the sacrifices these children and their families make.  Today we would like to Honor Mr. Parlapiano for his service to our country and thank Ella for her sacrifice and strength. We would also like to recognize Colin Kasper, Anthony Jarvis's brother, for his service to the US Navy as an Electronic Technician 1st Class. Lastly, today we would also like to recognize Lylah Henneman and her father for his service. It is through these families sacrifices that we all remain safe. Thank you.

  • The Timothy Edwards baseball team traveled to Illing of Manchester on Thursday afternoon and turned in another impressive effort.  TE scored 3 runs in the first, but Illing responded and by the end of the second inning the Cougars were down 5 to 3.  That's when Andrew Goulet and then Colin Heslin came in and silenced the Rams' bats.  Goulet pitched 3 scoreless innings and Heslin followed suit.  The two combined to give up only 3 hits the rest of the way. The TE bats were alive in this game.  They pounded out 16 hits en route to victory.  Heslin, Ben Balducci, Peyton West and Brayden Dill had three hits apiece.  Sam Pines added two singles and Joey Russo hit a laser over the left fielders head for a double.  The Cougars improve to 2 and 0 on the season and play at JFK on Monday afternoon.
