  • Purple Week - Workshop Wednesday - STAR Assessment day - Log onto homeroom by 8:50 for instructions.
  • Last spring, you may remember Mrs. Morgan-Hostetler coming on the air to talk about recent events that were taking place in our country and how TE was looking for students who were interested in helping our community engage in conversations about racism, the role of race in our society and student activism. We are looking to continue that group and add other students who are interested in brainstorming ideas on changes we can make at TE to be more inclusive and understanding of all who are part of our community. If you are interested, please join the “Make a Change” classroom using code: c23gpkr. Please do this by Tuesday, November 3rd.  In the classroom, you will find information about our first meeting. If you are unsure of what this will be about, join the class, come to our first meeting and then decide if it is right for you. If you would like to ask some questions prior to the first meeting, please email Mrs. Kozik at tkozik@swindsor.k12.ct.us
  • Attention all TE Students and Teachers: This year the Yearbook would like to invite all of you to submit your own SELFIE with your PET.  We all love our pets, and this year they can be a part of our 2021 TEMS Yearbook. Just email your photo with your pet to Ms. Gravell, with the subject line, SELFIE WITH PETS. Let's see how many of you can show off yourself with your pet. Please submit your photos as images, not on Google formats, to lgravell@swindsor.k12.ct.us.
  • We are THRILLED to kick off the Entertainers season with this announcement! While we are disappointed that we will not be able to meet in person this year, we are grateful for the opportunity to try a remote performance of School House Rock Live, Jr. Sadly, there will be no need for a set, stage, or light/sound crew this year, but if you're interested in performing here's what you need to do:
  1. Join the Entertainers Google Classroom with code a3uwofm
  2. Complete the Google Form to sign up 
  3. Pick your favorite musical theater song for your audition
  4. Practice 30 seconds of the song you think best showcases your voice and your "screen presence"
  5. Record your performance with or without accompaniment
  6. Upload your video no later than Sunday, November 15

You have 3 weeks to get ready so have fun and be sure to listen to the TETV morning news for more Entertainers related announcements. We look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Team T-shirt Design contest. Single color design on blank background submitted to homeroom teacher by this Friday to vote on Monday. 
  • We are in the home stretch for our Fit A Thon Fundraiser and we are so close to our $12,000 goal with $10.740!  We are $1,260 away from our goal!  We need a big push the last few days to hit our goal!  Remember our goal is for each student to raise at least $50.  Email grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors. We want to give a shout out to our three current top fundraising students from each grade!. Congratulations to Emory Forko  in Grade 6 who is the overall leader and has raised over $1,950 dollars for our school!  Absolutely incredible! In 7th Grade we have Payton Beaudreau in the lead and in 8th grade we have Jesse Lessard but there are several students in both 7th and 8th that are close behind these students!   Awesome job guys!!!  Remember the top fundraiser from each grade earns a $100 cash prize! As for the Team prize for DQ Blizzard vouchers, Team Evergreen is in the lead, with over $2,000 raised, but Lime and Pacific could creep up from behind!  Keep sharing your fundraising webpage with family and friends. Don’t forget, there is only one more chance to win a raffle prize. This Friday we will be raffling three $50 Amazon gift cards for students that have met their $50 donation goal, so keep getting those donations! Good Luck!
