  • Good morning TEMS, lately there have been incidents where students are telling us they are "play fighting". Let me make it very clear - "play fighting" is going to be considered fighting - a physical altercation and you will be disciplined accordingly. Also, tonight's dance is a very popular one. Make sure that you behave appropriately because any incidents will result in your not being allowed to go to future dances. Remember the dance ends at 8:30 so make sure your ride is here at that time. Do your best and Strive for Five!

  • Brian Murdoch with the Joke of the Week: What do computers like to snack on? Silicon chips, cookies, and spam!
  • The TE boys soccer team was in action again last night playing Sage Park Middle School in Windsor. The game was back and forth until late in the second half. With the first half score line of 2-1, compliments of Aadi Dey and Jake Gattuso, the Chargers from Windsor came out with reckless abandon in the second. After tying up the score, the Cougars clawed their way back into the lead with goals from Dey, and Drew Monteserin. Owen Verzella and Vaughan Bizier were tough in the back. The Cougars next play on Monday at JFK in Enfield.

  • The lady Cougars hosted Sage Park yesterday afternoon in Cougar Stadium. The ladies started the game right out the of gate as Sarah Gordon connected with Lexi Lilly for an opportunity on goal that nearly found the back of the net within the first seconds of the match. The Cougars were energetic in the midfield with supporting plays from Huntyr Courtois, Katelyn Roux, Emily Ledger, and Catherine Downes. Defensive player of the game goes to midfielder Iniya Raja who was instrumental in securing possession and tackling in the midfield. The Cougar defense played an outstanding game with amazing hustle and communication from Sidney Montana, Hailey Testa, and Leighana Ferrabelo. However, the MVP award goes to Arden Sansom who tallied 3 goals on the day demonstrating her composure to finish under pressure. Assists for Sansom came from Lexi Lilly, Hailey Test, and Ritika Abburi. Haley Bulter rounded out the Cougar defense between the pipes. Butler had six saves on the day securing yet another clean sheet for the books. TE look forward to next week where they face JFK on Monday in their last home game of the season. Come on out and support the team!

  • The Field Hockey team played their foundation game yesterday afternoon against Stafford Middle School in front of a close to record breaking crowd. The Cougars played a very defensive game and walked away victorious with a score 1-0. TE started off strong, pushing the ball onto Stafford's side of the field and held it there for a good part of the first half. Scoring the only goal of the day was Kaylee Guerera, assisted by Giana Bellody. Stafford then attempted to turn the game around, forcing the ball back on the Cougars side of the field but their plan was spoiled by Rachel Turer, Molly Frank, Sophie Finer and Abby Bergstrom. Each time they snuck the ball into the circle they were rejected by Greta Slater, Avery Fournier, Grace Rich and Maya Swedock playing great defense. Ria Saxena was credited with the shut out, keeping her defense sharp making sure each Stafford attacker was covered. The second game ended in a tie between the Cougars and Stafford. Emily Osit led the charge with Anna Stapleton, Isabelle Goodrich, Avery Pelczar and Morgan Reed. Sophia Flores made several great saves and locked down the shut out. The team would like to thank everyone that came out to support the team and their cause. The teams next home game is Wednesday against JFK of Enfield.
  • Congratulations to the girls cross country team on their double win against Sage Park and Two Rivers with final scores of 15 to 53 and 17 to 46, respectively.  Audrey Manning was out front and all alone earning herself another 1st place finish followed by Taylor Lord, Maddie Syme, and Riley Baker, who all finished in the top 5 overall.  The cold weather brought out the best times with an astounding 31 personal records made by the team including Ella Heredia, who took off 30 seconds while moving up 4 spots on the team, Brooke Stapleton who had a great race running nearly 3 minutes faster than her last time, and Sue Dionne, who was looking speedy as she shed over 5 minutes off her best time.  The team is looking forward to their next away meet against Ellington on Tuesday.  Run hard, Cougars!  
  • Thursday afternoon brought some chilly and windy weather, but it couldn't cool down the boys cross country team.  The Cougars notched two more victories on to their total, as they defeated Sage Park 15 to 50 and Two Rivers Magnet School 18 to 43.  Ares Savvides crossed the line first, taking his first overall victory of the season.  Colin Grip ran his strongest race of the year, breaking in to the top 5. Travis Willcox was on a mission as he took over a minute off his best time and tallied a top 10 placement.  The hard work is also paying off for Sam Balducci and Kevin Joseph, as they both finished well over a minute under their best times.  The team tries to keep the undefeated season going when they travel to Ellington on Tuesday afternoon.  
  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have Chicken Tenders, in the Grill line you can have Chicken Club 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!
