  • Are you interested in acceptance, inclusivity, and equality for all? A new club, the GSA, which stands for Gay-Straight Alliance, will be having its first meeting on Wednesday, January 30th. The GSA at TE provides a safe and welcoming space for any student who wants to talk about issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. During our meetings, we will play games, do team-building activities, and talk about what’s going on in our lives. Through our club, we hope to build a judgment-free community of friends and allies who support one another. It does not matter how you identify; anyone can attend and everyone is welcome. If you have any questions about the GSA, please see Mrs. Zaugg in Room 332 (Pacific Team). We look forward to seeing you at our first meeting after school on Wednesday, January 30th.
  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have Chicken Nuggets, in the Grill line you can have Turkey Philly Cheese Steak and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches.  Have a great day, do your best, and remember to always strive for 5!
