  • 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!
