7th Grade Parent Orientation

This is a special edition of our Tamanend Connections newsletter created to help our soon-to-be 7th graders and their parents get ready for their transition to Tamanend Middle School. We truly enjoyed sharing all of the things we love about Tamanend on Parent Orientation Night... our talented students, our dedicated counselors and teachers, and all of the great things that we do that build our community and make us Tamanend Together!

About Tamanend Middle School

Here are a few things about Tamanend that will help you understand what it will be like to be (or have) a Tamanend student...

Everyone at Tamanend, Learning and Growing Together!

Our faculty often discusses the importance of "keeping the main thing the main thing." At Tamanend, the main thing is: Everyone at Tamanend, Learning and Growing Together. What that means to us is that teachers and students alike work hard everyday to learn and stretch ourselves to grow.

6th Grade Student Orientation at Tamanend Middle School

Wednesday, May 27th, 9:15am

Tamanend Middle School, Warrington, PA 18976

We welcome all future Tamanend 7th graders to join us. We will talk about all of the great programs that we have: academic, athletic, service, and more. We will take tours of the building and hear from current Tamanend students who will reflect on their first days at Tamanend. It will be our first day for next year's 7th graders to be Tamanend Together!

Tamanend 7th Grade Open House & Schedule Pick-Up

Thursday, Aug. 20th, 8am-2:30pm

Tamanend Middle School, Warrington, PA 18976

Students and their parents are welcome to come to our 7th Grade Open House and Schedule Pick-up Day. It is a great day to learn their schedules, find and open their lockers, and tour the building. Please come through the Main Office.

First Day of School

Monday, Aug. 31st, 7:30am-2:30pm

Tamanend Middle School, Warrington, PA 18976

For this first day of school, we have planned a special day for our 7th graders. We will have a welcome assembly, team ice-breakers and opportunities to meet other students and teachers, learn to open lockers, find classes, and get used to being a Tamanend student. We will allow our 7th graders to leave classes a few minutes before the rest of the students so that they have time to find their way. Likewise, we will allow our 7th graders to be dismissed earlier at the end of the day so that they can successfully open their locker, find their bus, and make their way home to tell their parents how well they did!

Interested in Playing Tamanend Football?

Because football workouts start in the summer, any student who wants to play Tiger Football next year should click here to fill out an interest survey. We will use the email contact that you provide to make you aware of the summer workout schedule.

Smart Link...

Here is the link to the article mentioned during Parent Orientation about the word "YET" being one of the most important things you can say to your son or daughter when it comes to their learning.

IF we remain Tamanend Together, especially if things are not YET falling into place, it will be our TRUST in each other that will support your student's growing and learning.

Remember, three important themes at Tamanend...

  • Get involved
  • Tamanend Together
  • IF-YET-TRUST
