On March 6, the 7th Grade students visited the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, NJ to transport back in time to the Revolutionary war. Students were welcomes by members of the Continental Army to be "recruited" upon arrival. Students were then introduced to the hardships of the army members and even got a chance to try on some uniforms. Students were immersed in the time period - as it connects closely to their Social Studies Curriculum; so much so that we later received a comment from the staff via e-mail: "I heard from one of our interpreters that you had a great group who asked lots of relevant and knowledgeable questions :)" Overall, the students had a great day!

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.
