B101 Christmas Choir Semi-Finalists
Our 8th Grade Chorus was a semi-finalist in the B101 Christmas Choir Competition. Singing Walking in a Winter Wonderland/Don't Worry Be Happy, our students' joy in singing came through in their voices. As we have seen within our school, our chorus students have a way of bringing us all together through their love of music. We are so thankful to our entire Central Bucks community for supporting our 8th Grade Choir in the competition. Although they were not selected as a finalist, the response that we heard from people in and outside of Central Bucks was that our students' song lifted their spirits and brought them joy. That is a prize in and of itself! If you did not have the chance to hear them sing, click here and enjoy!

Volunteer Requirement Reminder
Pennsylvania law requires all persons having direct contact with school children must obtain background checks and clearances by July 1, 2016. If you are planning on being in a Central Bucks school during the 2016-2017 school year for any reason, you will need to go to Volunteer Required Paperwork, complete what is needed to obtain your Photo Volunteer ID Card. You will need that and another piece of photo ID to enter a CB school.
Once you have the paperwork started, please click here to sign up for various volunteer opportunities available this year (use TMS as the password).
After signing up, the school needs to verify that all volunteer clearances are on file. Parents/guardians will be notified by the school if they are cleared and needed to chaperone. Thank you.
To access your son/daughter’s report card:
Log onto the Parent Portal: https://campus.cbsd.org/campus/portal/cbsd.jsp.

Click on REPORT CARD. You can print this report.
Throughout the year, Tamanend staff members look for examples of students showing Respect, Achievement, and Responsibility... R.oA.R. Those students are given Tiger Tracks which students can enter into a Tiger Tracks drawing. Each Friday, Mr. Boyle draws one student's Tiger Track and announces the winner on our Tamanend Today Show. The winner can pick from a number of prizes including great coupons from Subway, Rita's, Randazzo's, Yogurt Tree, and Moe's!
The following students were recent weekly winners!
