Capture the Flag 2017

Our 8th Grade Social Studies students play Capture the Flag to simulate the constraints and strategies of the Revolutionary War. Check out this great video capturing the spirit of this action-packed learning activity.

Fall Orchestra Pops Concert

The Tamanend 9th grade Orchestras played a fantastic Halloween Pops Concert last week. We combined with the Lenape and Unami 9th grade Orchestras to play on the Fall South/West Orchestra Concert. They had a lot of fun pairing up with the HS students, playing Halloween music, and dressing up in costume. It was a great night of music for everyone!

Día de los Muertos

Caine's Arcade Inspires TMS Students

Students in Mrs. Brumbaugh's Engineering classes learned about Caine's Arcade and then designed and created an arcade of their own for other students to enjoy. The games were incredibly designed and fun to play!

A Few Friendly Reminders

This coming Monday, we will go over the following reminders on our Tamanend Today Show. We ask that parents/guardians please review these with your student at home. Thank you for your support.

Water Only: We allow... we even encourage students to bring water to school. We especially encourage bringing reusable containers and using our water bottle filling stations. Water is good for us. It is especially good for our brains to stay hydrated by drinking water. We do NOT allow students to drink other beverages such as Gatorade or coffee during or between classes. If students drink those beverages, we ask that they do so before arriving to school. Students can pack and enjoy a sports drink for lunch but they must finish it before lunch is over. Water doesn’t stain, burn, or attract bugs when it spills. It is just plain healthy and all students need it during and between classes. Thank you for your respectful understanding.

Fire Drills: We are required to have a fire drill each month. Now that we have hit the cold winter months, sometimes the temperature and grounds are not cooperative. We ask that all students always dress appropriately for the weather each and every day, including shoe choice.
