  • Good Morning TE - The 3rd Annual PTO Walk-A-Thon will kick off on Wednesday.  This is our only fundraiser of the school year and we need your support!  Our school goal is to raise $20,000 and our individual student goal – that’s you – is to raise $50.  The money we raise helps to support activities and events sponsored by our school.  On Wednesday you will receive a packet of information that tells you and your family how to go on line to begin the pledge process.  So our kick off date is Wednesday, September 26th.  Our Walk-a-Thon date is Wednesday, October 17th.  You will have almost a month to get those pledges.   There are incentives, too!  As you raise money, your name gets put into a raffle to win some pretty cool prizes like gift cards to Starbucks, Barnes/Noble, Ben and Jerry’s, Jump Off and CineMark.  Also, the top fundraising student in each grade will receive a $100 cash prize, and the overall top team will win a pizza party.  We will be highlighting amounts raised by each team in the cafeteria so that you can watch how your team is doing.  So let’s get ready to do our best to reach that goal!! Have a great day, do your best and ALWAYS STRIVE FOR FIVE plus ONE.

  • The Boys Soccer team were in action last night taking on the Illing Rams of Manchester.  The game was back and forth until Josiah Chamberlain drew a foul at the top of the box and Jack Stricker hammered home the free kick.  However, in just a few minutes, the visitors drew level and then they were ahead 2-1 just like that.  In the second half, Aadi Dey converted a spot kick, after Chamberlain drew yet another foul.  The visitors continued to press and got a third to make the final score 3-2.  The Cougars next game is Tuesday after school when they take on JFK from Enfield.
  • The TEMS lady Cougars kicked off against the Illing Rams yesterday afternoon. The Cougars began with strong pressure from the wings as Sarah Gordon, Arden Sansom, and Lexi Lilly displayed great offensive pressure in the first half. In midfield, Megan Martin proved to be a complete player as she stopped numerous attacks, but also distributed the ball evenly to help put the team in scoring position. Early on crosses swung in frequently, but the lady Cougars struggled to find the back of the net. Late in the first half, TE struck first as midfielder Emily Ledger found the foot of Elise Suffish who hammered the ball into the back of the net scoring her first goal as a Cougar. This goal was vital as it proved to be the game winner. In the second half, TE took a more defensive approach allowing Iniya Raja and Huntyr Courtois to demonstrate their ability to keep the Rams at bay. Defensive highlights also came from Hailey Testa and Sidney Montana who both had amazing composure and were relentless in keeping the ball in the offensive half. Goalkeeper Haley Butler managed the game between the pipes and made three saves on the day in order to keep a shutout. Shots in the second half came from Kaitlyn Roux, Emily Ledger, and Abby Peruccio. The Cougars look forward to face JFK in Enfield next week on Tuesday at 3:45.

  • The lady Cougars faced off against fierce opponents Tolland in their home opener yesterday afternoon. The game proved to be a tough match against a strong opponent as the Cougars lost 5-0. In the first half, the Cougar's tried to get a rhythm as Abby Peruccio and Emerson Iacovelli linked together numerous passes. Amazing defensive performances came from Megan Martin, Sidney Montana, Hailey Testa, and Huntyr Courtois. Rounding out the wing backs was Anna Matus and Chion Pollard, who with the support of the Haley Butler in goal, helped hold Tolland to only 1 goal by halftime. In the second half, Lexi Lilly, Emily Ledger, Katelyn Roux, and Sarah Gordon created a handful of chances, and did an amazing job pressuring the Tolland defense. The Cougars displayed hustle throughout the second half with great tackles from 6th grader's Elise Suffish and Ritika Abburi. Additional opening day highlights came from Leighana Ferrabelo, Mikayla Evans, and Iniya Raja, as the trio helped to halt countless Tolland attacks. Goalkeeper's Haley Butler and Catherine Downes totaled 14 saves on the day. Overall, it was a hard-fought game for the Cougars as they look forward to their first away game on Thursday at 3:30 against Illing. 
  • The Boys Soccer team were in action last night taking on Tolland. The boys came out a touch flat allowing the Falcons time and space thus leading to four goals for the opponent.

Next game for TE is Thursday after school.
