  • Hi TE, it's that time today...if athletes get athletes foot, and if a Sasquatch gets big foot, what do elves get?  Mistle-toe!

  • Walk-A-Thon news . . . Congratulations to Lime for being the team to have raised the most so far!  Garnet is in the lead for 7th grade and Pacific is leading the 8th graders. The overall team winner gets a pizza party! Make sure to register at getmovincrew.com. So far only 17% of TE students are registered and they've already raised over $8,000. Just imagine how much money we could raise for our school if everyone participated! Our goal is for each student to raise at least $50.  And remember, the student who raises the most money in each grade wins $100 cash!  Email grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors!  Have your parents post it on Facebook!  Get those pledges in this long weekend!  Good luck!

  • The lady Cougars kicked off against Sage Park yesterday afternoon in what proved to be a one sided match. The Cougars flew out of the gate with outstanding hustle from midfielders Emily Ledger, Catherine Downes, and Ritika Abburi. The first goal came from Katelyn Roux off an assist from Abby Peruccio. The goal was followed up by a penalty kick taken by the skipper Megan Martin who calmly slotted the ball into the back of the net bringing the score to 2-0. Defensively, the Cougars were solid at the back as Hailey Testa, Sidney Montana, and Chion Pollard helped secure the victory. Outstanding play came from left back Leighana Ferrabelo and center midfielder Iniya Raja who provided countless defensive stops for the Cougars. Katelyn Roux tallied two goals on the day along with another added by 6th grader Elise Suffish. Captains Sarah Gordon and Lexi Lilly also found the back of the net with assists coming from Emerson Iacovelli and Chion Pollard. Haley Butler kept composure and secured yet another clean sheet on the season bringing her total to three. For the next game, the Cougars match up against rivals Ellington on Wednesday. Come out and support the team!
