Last year at her 8th-grade Passage, Sadie shared that she had decided to record an album of original songs that she had written over the course of her time at TEA. Over the summer/fall, she spent a great deal of time in the recording studio with Emily Tessmer, laying down all the tracks. It was a labor of love for sure that took about six months of diligent work.
We would like to congratulate the Class of 2019 on all of their achievements! College acceptances for our third class of graduates from TEA are in, and we are very proud to share those results. 100% of our graduates continuing on to college were accepted to 4-year colleges and universities with a scholarship total over $173,000.
Our 5th-grade students have kicked off their Natural Disasters Learning Expedition. TEA Parent Rick Chapman recently had the pleasure of being a crew leader for a couple of hours this past week, harnessing their energy to create theatrical sinkhole rescues, avalanches, and flash flood scenarios as a part of their study.
For their Spring Learning Expedition, our 2nd-grade students are building their research skills and science knowledge through a study of the secret world of plants and pollinators, with a particular emphasis on the life of bees. The perfect for springtime topic right?
We are so proud of our students and their ability to complete this 48-hour SOLO. In the end, the students were better able to reflect on who they are as individuals and who they want to become. And most importantly, they learned that they can survive and thrive on their own.
Did you know TEA fielded a co-ed HS Basketball TEAm this Winter? Incredibly the TEAm finished its inaugural season undefeated. A big thank you to all players, parents and coaches for an outstanding first season!
When TEA students Sadie and Joachim Tucker woke up on one very blustery Sunday morning, they may have collectively wished their parents’ alarm would fail to go off. But in true TEA fashion, staying home was not an option for ninth grader, Sadie Tucker, sixth grader Joachim Tucker, and TEA’s extraordinary biathlon coaches, Eric Martin and Karen Ropers.
The Girls MS Volleyball TEAm just finished its first ever season this week. Looking ahead to the next school year, this dedicated TEAm will compete in the Tah-Neva middle school league against schools like ACMS, Lake Tahoe School, South Tahoe, Carson City, and other nearby schools.
For their 6th-grade Learning Expedition, our students were involved in a deep study of mythology, its purposes, and elements. Students studied the archetypal storyline of the hero’s journey which has been repeated in literature throughout the centuries. Our students were then connected with several High Fives athletes to interview, record and narrate each of their hero’s journeys to create their final product book “The Heroes of High Fives.”
Imagine you’re in your HS math class and your teacher tells you that you’re going have to convey your emotions through math. Wait? What? Introducing “The Line Logo Project” by TEA Math and Science Teacher Natalie Bladis.
Katy Watts is our College Counselor at TEA, and wanted to share some of her favorite resources for college planning. The first one she wanted to introduce to you is Campus Reel. With this resource, you have REAL students walking you around a specific campus and giving you their own tour.
