TE Morning News - February 20, 2020 
  • Today everyone will take the next “Having a Voice” survey in Google Classroom after announcements. Homeroom teachers, please remind students to complete the survey before they leave homeroom. Thank you!

  • Monday, February 24th, we will be having a very special guest presenter coming to TE. His name is Ryan Parker and he calls himself an "Edutainer Artivist." Ryan is a motivational speaker who promotes peace-building and confidence-building.  Influenced by hip hop music, he uses his poetry to empower youth. Parker is described as  "a linguistic gourmet chef that chooses words to create a delicacy for the reader to consume and digest until full from pure poetic sustenance."  We are very excited to bring Ryan to speak with all of you. Look for his flyers hanging around the building to get more information on him. CLICK HERE to learn more about Ryan.
