We are hosting a Legislative Breakfast at TEMS on Feb. 7th from 8:15 -9:15AM in our Media Center. Student work will be on display, showcasing learning in the STEM fields. TEMS is such an important part of our community as we offer these opportunities to students that they otherwise would not receive. We need to bring magnet schools to the forefront of our legislators’ minds. Please take the opportunity to show your support for continued funding for magnet schools by attending this breakfast.
Please RSVP with the secretaries in the main office if you are planning on attending. 203 639-8403

We are in the midst of flu season and gastrointestinal illnesses ("the stomach bug"). Here are some ways that we all can help to minimize the spread of illness at TEMS:
Influenza is spread through droplets (airborne with coughing, sneezing and can live short term on objects).Other respiratory viruses can live on surfaces for hours as well. Gastrointestinal viruses are spread via contact and can live on surfaces for days.
PLEASE, remind everyone that it is important to cover their cough (cough into their arm/elbow), wash their hands prior to eating, after using the bathroom, and after touching their face (i.e. blowing nose, coughing).Soap and water, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer (“Purell) are both effective killing germs on skin.

The TEMS FAP will be participating in the Dining for a Cause night at the Wallingford 99 Restaurant. The event takes place on Tuesday March 21 from 5-9 pm. We will be getting 15% of all sales when customers provide the attached voucher to their server. We are hoping that this event will serve as a catalyst to increase parent awareness/involvement with FAP on future events. Printed out vouchers will be placed in morning meeting teacher’s mailboxes, and additional vouchers will be available in the days leading up to the event. I have also attached a copy of the voucher to this email which has additional details about this event.
