Parent/Guardian Volunteers Needed
Parents of middle schoolers often ask how they can get involved. Some parents say that their child does not want them to get involved. At Tamanend, there are many special things that go on throughout the school year that would not be possible without the involvement and support of our parents. Please get involved.
Volunteers must have their clearances on file with the CBSD Human Resources Department prior to starting volunteer work. The new Pennsylvania State mandate does allow until July 1, 2016 to obtain background checks. However, in the best interest of the safety and security of our students, we are asking volunteers to comply with submitting background checks prior to volunteering in the 2015-2016 school year.
Volunteers may drop off required paperwork at the Administration Center at 20 Welden Drive.
DOYLESTOWN FOOD CO-OP
On Thursday, October 15th, the CBSD Wellness Committee along with The Doylestown Food Co-op and our Family & Consumer Science Department will be sponsoring a presentation on healthy eating for all families in Central Bucks School District. For more information on the organization see Doylestown Food Co-op and stay tuned for further information on the presentation.
