  • Good morning TE - I’m here today to share some news with you.  I have submitted my letter of intent to retire as principal of this school, effective June 30th.  I have been in South Windsor for 34 years in the capacity of teacher and administrator and have enjoyed my journey over the years.  I am telling you this today because I shared this news with parents at my PTO meeting last night and I will share in a school message today, but I wanted to be sure that you heard this from me.  I love you all and you are the biggest part of my work that I will miss – but it’s time for me to explore other interests and……I’m here for the rest of this school year. As always, work hard, do your best and ALWAYS STRIVE FOR FIVE plus one!

  • The Field Hockey team played their last game of the season yesterday afternoon against Mabel B Avery Middle School of Somers. TE went on the attack early, forcing the ball to the Avery side of the field. Scoring first for the Cougars was Amanda Koziura, firing a shot right past the goalie assisted by Alexis Dabrowski. Alexis scored the next goal off of a great pass by Amanda. The third goal was scored by Emily Osit, with a powerful shot assisted by Alexa Parada. The last goal of the first half was scored by Kaylie Guerrera, with an assist from Sophie Finer. With the starters back on the field to start the second half, the Cougars didn't wait long to continue their scoring attack. Sophie fired in the fifth goal with an assist from Giana Bellody. Coach Custer decided to switch up the game, allowing the defenders to join in on the attack. Greta Slater had a great pass along the goal line to Avery Fournier, hammering the ball into the goal for the seventh goal of the game. Rachel Turer made her presence known scoring the eighth and final goal of the game. Sophia Flores and Ria Saxena worked together to lock down the 8-0 shutout. The Cougars finish their season with a record of 6 wins and 2 losses. Coach Custer and Coach Wilkinson will really miss this 8th grade group and wish you luck as you move on to play at the high school.

Best of luck to all runners!

  • What did the football coach say to the vending machine? I want my quarter back!

  • The Field Hockey team faced off against Mabelle Avery Middle School of Somers yesterday on a very cold and windy afternoon. The Cougars started off strong, driving the ball up the field right away. Scoring first for the Cougars was Rachel Turer with a great reverse stick shot right into the net. Tori Jarvis scored next with an assist from Amanda Koziura. Rachel scored the third goal assisted by Emily Osit. Emily then put one in herself with an assist from Avery Yelle. Hanna Edstrom had a quick pass to Avery Pelczar, who sent the ball to Abby Bergstrom who fired the ball right past the goalie to lock in the 5-0 win over Somers. Ria Saxena and Sophia Flores had a combined effort to earn the shutout. Playing great for the  Cougars was Jordyn Boland, Isabelle Goodrich, Kaitlyn Bullock, Alexis Dabrowski, Anna Stapleton, Kaitlyn Hardy, Meredith Pinto, Angelina Bellizzi and Megan Stapleton. TE will play Avery Middle School again Wednesday at home for their final game of the season.

  • The lady Cougars matched up against Tolland in their final game of the season. The Cougars fought hard, but their efforts weren't enough to take down the undefeated opponent. Defensive prowess came from center backs Sidney Montana and Hailey Testa, with support from the flanks including Mikayla Evans and Leighana Ferabello. The midfield held their own as Iniya Raja, Emerson Iacovelli, Chion Pollard, and Katelyn Roux supported the center of the field with style and grace. Up at the front of the line, shots on target came from Lexi Lilly, Sarah Gordon, Arden Sansom, and Emily Ledger. Notable plays of the game came from the likes of goal keeper Haley Butler, who had 8 saves on the day. Butler demonstrated composure and leadership between the pipes. Also, notable was the performance by Megan Martin, who despite an ongoing injury, braved the cold and wind to ensure that the lady Cougars were in high spirits throughout the game. The Cougars conclude the season with five wins and six losses. The team was lead by captains Lexi Lilly, Megan Martin, and Sarah Gordon with support from fellow 8th graders Iniya Raja, Emily Ledger, Anna Matus, Chion Pollard, and Abby Peruccio. A big thanks to the team and the 8th graders for all their positivity and leadership throughout the season. 

  • Have you noticed the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF signs that appeared all over school last week?  It is that time of year again.  Won't you consider digging out some spare change at home or in your backpack to help children all over the world?
