  • Good morning TE! It's great to see so many people dressed in orange today! Some of you may be wondering "why orange"? Well, wearing orange means you are supporting a school and community that will accept and respect each other and we will NOT tolerate any teasing or bullying. This day is a reminder that, despite our differences, we should be treating each other with respect and kindness. We all don't have to be best friends, but we do owe each other the respect of being kind and accepting. So try to be mindful of how other people might be feeling. Maybe invite someone to sit with you if they are alone or say a kind word to a classmate or peer. Let's all join together and support the fact that, although we may not all be the same, we should be accepting each other for who and what we are. Have a GREAT day!
  • So awesome to see everyone showing their team spirit yesterday at the Walk-A-Thon! Hope you all remembered to wear orange today to support unity in our TE Community! And tomorrow, we all get to chill out in our comfy/cozy outfits. Just remember, no blankets or stuffed animals please. 
  • Attention all students interested in being part of the cast or crew of this year's Entertainers production of Aladdin - there will be an informational meeting after school on Monday, November 4th in the auditorium.  Come with your backpacks and be prepared to stay until the 4:05 late buses.  Look forward to seeing you on November 4th!
  • Our 4th annual TEMS Walk-A-Thon was a great success! Students, staff, and the Cougars all had a fantastic time! Shout out to Mother Nature for holding off the rain.  And as of last night, we have raised over $16,000 just about $4,000 short of our $20,000 school goal. Thank you to all TEMS students, staff, family and friends for all your support so far! Keep up the great work!  Remember the pledge period will close next week on Thursday October 31st, so get those last-minute pledges in! We’ll be declaring the individual, team and grade winners after the close of the pledge period next week.  In the meantime, Brayden Childree is the top fundraiser so far for the 6th grade, Brock Kelly  is in the lead for 7th grade, and Tim Bortolan is still in the lead for 8th.  The Sage Team currently has the overall lead for the pizza party and 6th grade is in the top spot for earning the ice cream social! There’s still one week left, so keep up the great work! Another student, team or grade could swoop in before the pledge period ends! 
  • That's right Champions - MathCounts starts this Friday morning at 7:00 in the cafeteria.  Be sure to bring a pencil, bring a calculator and  bring a friend.  Hope to see you there!
  • Today for lunch in the Create line you can have Soft Tacos, in the Grill line you can have Crispy Chicken Club and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a good day and do your best to strive for five!

  • Another victory was celebrated by the girls cross country team at Ellington yesterday with a final score of 25 to 49.  Other than one Ellington runner, it was all purple, black, and white crossing the finish line in the top 15 places led by Audrey Manning coming in first overall in a time of 11:52.  Alyssa Drenga had the best run of her season finishing in 5th overall, and Morgan Caron ran her fastest yet, placing in the top 15 while moving up several places on the team.  Also looking strong was Chiara Papa, who placed 7th, and Samantha Drezek and Ava Magarian who both pushed each other as they used the downhill to speed through the finish.  The cougars look forward to eating queso at Moe's after their league meet on Monday where they aim to put Tolland back in their place and become league champions.  Best of luck to all runners! 

  • The Boys Cross Country team finished off their undefeated regular season with an impressive performance against Ellington on Tuesday afternoon. After an Ellington runner took the overall victory, the Cougars followed with the next 11 runners, led by Ares Savvides in second and Aidan Walsh and Sean Habeeb closely behind. Alex Matus had his best race of the year, crossing the line in sixth place and helping TE to the 20 to 43 victory. Eoin Gately had a great finish, using the steep downhill to sneak by an Ellington runner in the final feet. The team travels to Manchester next Monday for the the league championship race, where they hope to win back the first place trophy.

  • Please contribute to Operation Gratitude this Friday, to help send care packages to our troops. Donation boxes will in the main lobby and in team hall areas.

  • Have you noticed the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF signs that appeared all over school last week?  It is that time of year again.  Won't you consider digging out some spare change at home or in your backpack to help children all over the world? UNICEF helps children in emergencies by providing food, safe drinking water, medical care and education.  Children deserve a chance to live happy, healthy lives.  Please help by donating to your homeroom Trick-or-Treat box.  Thank you!!
