Conferences will be held April 11th from 4:00-6:00 pm.
Students, parents, and staff at TES collected items for service men/women and first-responders. The collection was done as a parent activity before the school's Valentine's Day party. Some of the items that were collected were: tootbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, chapstick, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, lotions, small games, stuffed toys, handwritten letters, and paracord bracelets. The students in 4th and 5th grades made the paracord bracelets by following instructions provided on operationgratitude.com. The school collected enough items to fill five boxes.

Students from Tennerton, Hodgesville, and Washington District had an opportunity to ask questions to an astronaut in the ISS live via Skype at WVWC on January 25. They were able to experience science experiments from WVWC Professors before and after the Skype session. We would like to thank TES/HES Guidance Counselor Suzanne Bohman, WVWC, NASA-Fairmont, and Senator Shelly Moore-Capito's office for arranging this experience for the students of Upshur County.
Michael Lee, a TES alum and current Aerospace Engineering Major at WVU, stopped by TES on December 5th to share stories about his journey studying abroad in Japan with the 3rd grade students. Michael shared stories of his trip, discussed cultural differences, explained his area of study, and fielded questions during his presentation. At the conclusion, he tied Japanese culture and his program of study together by having students create various paper airplanes through the art of origami. Thanks, Michael!
