Veterans were invited to Tennerton Elementary on November 9 to celebrate the freedom for which they sacrificed. During the week students at TES wrote poems, essays, drew pictures, and made other decorations to celebrate all veterans. The school gathered for a short assembly to sing songs about patriotism and to hear students recite poems and essays that they had written in recognition of what it means to be a patriot. The TES family would like to thank all veterans and their families for their sacrifices and service.
Mrs. Karen Leigh, TES's PE teacher, was recently named the state's PE teacher of the year. Mrs. Leigh does a wonderful job encouraging students to be active and enjoy exercise. She helps students develop cooperation skills every day during the activities she plans. She works/plans behind the scenes on things like Rachel's Challenge Field Day and TES Field Day.
