TEM Talks Are Back

Once again, the Jr. Model United Nations Club will be hosting "TEM Talks" (a spin-off of Ted Talks) during Activity Time.  This is a totally optional activity for students to attend.  The goal of TEM Talks is to share, learn about, and explore cultures from around the world.  If you have experience or expertise with another culture and would be willing to give a TEM Talk, please let us know.  They are short (20 minute) presentations given during each grade-level's Activity Time.  You may contact Mr. David Hardy if you have questions or are interested in presenting at HardyD@tesd.net .  Thank you!
