On February 28th, TEECS was honored to have Councilwoman Keiona Miller visit our school. She took a tour of our new building and visited our younger grades. She also spoke to our middle school students. Her story about herself was very inspiring to our students. Her message to them was that it doesn't matter your race, or background, you can do whatever you would like to in life as long as you work hard and never give up ! She enjoyed seeing all our students works displayed through out the school.

On Friday, January 27th, TEECS celebrated National School Choice Week ! We held an assembly where a student from each grade was picked to present a writing piece on why they choose TEECS and/ or why they like TEECS. All the students had a variety of writing pieces. Some had poems, essays and even songs ! They all did a great job ! At the end of the assembly the whole school participated in the National School Choice Week official 2017 dance. It was very cool seeing the whole school dance it out! It was a great way to end our week and show our love for TEECS !! Thank you to Ms. Sandman who helped the students learn the dance.
