  • Our second annual TEMS Walk-A-Thon was a great success!  Students, staff, and the Cougar all had a fantastic time! It was so great to have the sunshine!  Thank you to all TEMS students, staff, family and friends for your support in making our fundraiser a success! We will declare the individual, team and grade winners after the close of the pledge period next week.  But in the meantime, a shout out to Vanshika Vikas who is still holding strong as the 6th grade leader.  Timothy Bortolan is in the lead for 7th grade, and Tony DeMartino currently has the lead for 8th.  The Lime Team currently has the overall lead for the pizza party, but The Evergreen Team is close behind them! And, we are only about $1400 shy of our school goal! Keep up the great work!  Remember the pledge period will close next week on Monday October 22nd.

  • On Tuesday, the lady Cougars matched up against East Hartford in what proved to be a one-sided event. In the first half, TE tallied an unassisted game opener from Sarah Gordon. The play was followed by strong tackles in the defensive end by Catherine Downes, Chion Pollard, and Anna Matus. Late in the first half, Emerson Iacovelli snuck a free kick between the pipes off an assist from Mikayla Evans. Iacovelli had two goals on the day. At the break, TE came out strong as Ritika Aburri tapped in her first goal of the season. The goals continued to trickle in as Elise Suffish tallied two assists on the day setting up Arden Sansom, and eventually finding the foot of Haley Butler for her first goal of the season. Sansom had two goals on the day. Outstanding play throughout the game was also had by Emily Legder, Hailey Testa, and Abby Perrucio as the trio were dynamic in securing a 7-0 victory over East Hartford. Yesterday, the Lady Cougars met opponents JFK in a competitive and windy match. The Cougars dropped down by two goals early in the game. Unlike Tuesday's game, the defense was busy with lot’s of action from Leighana Ferrabelo, Sidney Montana, Hailey Testa, and Mikayla Evans. Midfielders Iniya Raja, Huntyr Courtois, and Emily Ledger kept pace in the center of the pitch, and their efforts really started to shine through in the second half. Shots on the day came from Sarah Gordon, Emily Ledger, Arden Samson, and Lexi Lilly. TE host their next home game this afternoon against Sage Park. Come on out and support the Cougars!

  • The TE boys soccer team was in action once again last night battling the Patriots of JFK.  The first was a bit of a stale mate as the two sides scored one goal apiece.  Drew Monteserin drove nicely through the defense and buried his chance to put the Cougars ahead.  The Patriots equalized shortly thereafter.  In the second half, with the wind at their backs, the Cougars poured it on.  Rishabh Mohapatro blazed one home, Josiah Chamberlain scored his first career TEMS goal and Jake Gattuso slotted home a sweet finish to make the score 4-1.  Assists were from Aadi Dey, Damian Ayala and Chamberlain.  Dylan Hutton, Vaughn Bizier and Xavier Crane were stalwarts on the defensive end as well.  The Cougars travel to Sage Park today looking for 3 consecutive wins.

  • Attention 8th grade ambassadors:  There will be a lunch meeting on Monday, Oct 22 in the upper library.

  • Attention 7th grade ambassadors:  There will be a lunch meeting on Tuesday, Oct 23 in the upper library. 

  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have Chicken Fajitas , in the Grill line you can have Chicken Cordon Blue 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!
