TE Morning News - 10/10/17 

Good Morning TEMS,

  • Tomorrow is our second annual TEMS Walk-a-thon.  For those of you who got sponsors and donations for our school, THANK YOU!!!  This is our only fundraiser for the year and your contributions are greatly appreciated.  If you have not gotten sponsors there is still time to do so.  This green sheet that is going home today will tell you how.  Please help support our PTO!!
  • Not only are we walking tomorrow afternoon, we are also participating in a presentation called, “Campfel Productions”.  This anti-bullying presentation will challenge you to think about your words and actions and their effects on others.  Tomorrow plans to be a day for us to come together, learn something, reflect on how we behave and have some fun walking with our team mates.  Don’t forget to wear your new team t-shirts.  If you didn’t buy one, we have some extras for purchase in the office.  They are $7.00 – or you can just wear your grade level color – blue for grade 8; red for grade 7; and green for grade 6. Have a great day, do your best and ALWAYS STRIVE FOR FIVE plus ONE!
  • Keep your fingers crossed for great weather tomorrow it's Walk-A-Thon Wednesday!  If the weather isn't cooperating, we will postpone our walk until next Wednesday, October 18th. In the meantime, keep those pledges coming.  We are only $4000 short of our goal! The pledge period will remain open until Monday, October 16th. 
  • Teams Lime and Scarlet have reached their goal and joined the $2,000 club!  Congratulations and thank you!  Garnet is on pace to join the $2,000 club soon. 
  • And now for the final Walk-A-Thon raffle.  All students that have met their personal fundraising goal of $40 have been automatically entered. Winners may pick up their prizes in the office at lunch. Good luck! Congratulations to all of our raffle winners.  And a big thank you to everyone who has helped to make our Walk-a-Thon a success so far.  There's still time to get those pledges online or in school! 
  • TEMS will be holding our 7th annual Kenny Offiaeli Memorial Basketball Tournament on Friday  November 10th from 5:30-8:30 here at TEMS.  This tournament honors the life of a former TEMS student and basketball player who suddenly passed away during his 8th grade year.  The money raised from the tournament goes to support the Kenny Offaieli scholarship fund that is given to an 8th grade student each year at graduation.    This tournament is open to any student at TEMS.  You may pick up a registration packet in the main office or main gym.  Forms are due by October 27th to the main office.
  • Trick or Treat for Unicef is back. Please think about contributing to this great cause which helps underprivileged children around the world. Collection boxes can be found in each home room. Lets help out by giving a little to Unicef.
  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have General Tso's Chicken. In the Grill line you can have Chicken Nuggets and in the On the Go line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a great day, do your best, and remember to always strive for 5.
