Spring Pep Rally

Today we recognized all spring athletes at our annual Spring Pep Rally. Cadence M. sang the National Anthem then joined the rest of the Student Council Officers--Kat M., Garrett M., and Aaron F.--to kick off this much anticipated event. The Freshman Class was the uncontested winner of the Tamanend Spirit Cheer and named Mr. Steven Fitts as their teacher to receive the spirit stick on behalf of the class. Finally, although the Tamanend Teachers put up a great effort, it was the students who dominated the Faculty in the SVT Basketball Game.

Thank you Student Council and everyone who contributed to yet another incredible Tamanend Pep Rally! Go Tigers!

A Cappella Fest 2018

Last Saturday, middle school select choirs from all five CB schools came to Tamanend to learn a cappella from professional singers from Ball in the House. After an afternoon of workshops and practice, our middle school choirs performed their a cappella selections before a sold out audience. After intermission, Ball in the House sang songs that brought people to their feet and their feet to the stage! The grand finale was a joint effort of all choir students and teachers and Ball in the House--it was incredible!

We thank Mr. Sanchez for organizing this event for our students and community. We thank choir parents and alumni for all the behind the scenes work.

If you like A Cappella and want to see and hear more, come out to Tamanend this Friday night for the AcaTamaJam Competition between middle schools in the area. See flyer below.

R4L Reminder

All Relay for Life chaperones must register online through the CB website: https://www3.cbsd.org/Pages/Relay.aspx

All parents of students attending Relay should coordinate chaperone times with the team captains so that there are always two chaperones with the team during the Relay.

A Call for Earbuds

Each year, with the increase of available laptops and technological resources, teachers are incorporating more multi-media and differentiation in their lessons. Coinciding with this is the use of earphones to listen to screencasts and other audio or video. That is why we listed earbuds as a part of the school supply list for all grades this year. In recent weeks, we have seen a drop off in number of students coming prepared with earbuds. Please make sure that your student has earbuds as part of their other every-day school supplies such as pens/pencils, calculator, etc. We recommend that students store their earbuds in a ziplock bag in their binder pencil case when they are not in use. Earbuds can be bought inexpensively at dollar discount stores, discount super stores, and most major pharmacies. (Please do not send your student to school with expensive earbuds!) Also, please note that the newest iPhone has earbuds that are not compatible with our laptops.
