District Boomerang Winner

Congratulations 7th Grader, Alexa C for her selection as the CB middle school student who most exemplifies Boomerang Asset: Peaceful Conflict Resolution! Ms. Barbara Gross from C. B. Cares presented Alexa with a Boomerang Certificate and a Gift Certificate from Outback Steakhouse! We are proud of Alexa and all of our Tamanend Boomerang recipients!
If you have pictures of your TMS students serving their community on MLK Day - National Day of Service, please send them attached to an email to TMS@cbsd.org. This beautiful display was created by the students and staff of Mrs. Smith's class.

Winter Pep Rally

We are proud of TMS Orchestra Director, Ms. Jessica Weber, who has been invited to conduct at the Putnam County Music Educator’s Association All-County Orchestra Festival. She will return to her home state of NY to conduct a group of very talented 7th and 8th grade string students in this 2- day festival.

Highlighted in a Previous Tamanend Connections:

  • February 1st is the end of the 2nd Marking Period. If you have not spent time with your student looking together at the Parent Portal lately, we encourage you to do so now. Celebrate successes - there are many! If you see any areas of concern, ask your student(s) if they have talked with that teacher, asked for help, or taken advantage of second-chance learning. IF-YET-TRUST!
  • Central Bucks School District Music Teachers will perform in a 10th Annual Charity Concert to raise money for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation which helps provide music programs for schools that cannot financially support a program on their own. Our very own Mr. Sanchez, Mr. Werner and Ms. Weber will perform along with our Cheiftain Chorus and Gold'n'Blues. This amazing concert (which just about sold out last year!) will be held on January 25th and 26th at 7:30 p.m. at Holicong Middle School. For more information and tickets go to: http://www.cbsd.org/save-the-music/Pages/default.aspx
  • In order to promote more students eating breakfast before school, Tamanend will soon have a breakfast cart. Students will be able to purchase breakfast items from 7:10 a.m. until 7:25 a.m. The cart will be located at the Science end of the Library Hallway. Students will be able to use their IDs to swipe their account number, or they can enter it manually. Students will be allowed to eat breakfast in their homerooms.
