  • The girls cross country team maintained undefeated status against their toughest competition yesterday, beating Tolland 24 to 33 and East Hartford 15 to 50 wrapping up their regular season with 10 wins and 0 losses.  It was a big victory for the TE girls, who have been close other seasons, but unable to beat Tolland until last night's win.  Shennyn Giannelli earned her 5th 1st place finish of the season completing the 2 mile run in 13:38.  5 TE girls joined Shennyn in the top 10, including Taylor Lord coming in 5th for TE and 9th overall without choking on her own saliva during the race.  Fantastic, Taylor!  Shout out to Ishaal Bukhari for a great finish yesterday, and for her spirit in recognizing excellence in others this season.  Sophia Gordon looked strong during one of her best races of the season as did Grace Smith, who pushed herself and the team with her words of wisdom, "Everyone is essential to victory."  Good luck at your league meet this Monday, Cougars!!

  • Hello students and teachers of Timothy Edwards, we need your help! Make a difference day is coming up and Luca and I are planning to make a BIG DIFFERENCE on Friday, October 26th. In order for us to accomplish this we need your help on sending care packages out to Deployed Troops, New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, and Wounded Heroes. This is called Operation Gratitude. Please help us accomplish this by bringing in donations on the wish list that is listed on the flyer that will be given out in every homeroom. During our planning, we encountered a problem.  The problem was we have to pay for shipping. We came up with a solution to this problem.  We will do a few hat and jeans for charity days. We will let you know those dates. I hope every student can participate in this drive. Remember if you participate you will make a difference too. Thank you!  
  • Today for lunch... In the Create line you can have French Toast, in the Grill line you can have Mozzarella Sticks and in the On the Go line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a great day, do your best,  remember to always strive for 5!
