One-to-One News!

We are excited to share that the Central Bucks School District Board of Directors approved a one-to-one initiative for all 7th and 8th graders in 2018-2019! That means that each 7th and 8th grader in CBSD will receive a district issued and supported laptop to use each day in school and at home during the school year. This initiative was piloted at Holicong Middle School this school year with excellent results. Stay tuned for more information regarding parent info, laptop distribution, etc.

An A+ Thank You from Giant Food Store...

We received an email from Giant Food Store thanking our community, our neighborhood schools, teachers, and educators for participating in their A+ School Rewards program. Because of everyone's participation, Tamanend Middle School has earned $680.39! We will use that money to support Student Council's effort to purchase seating around the school: indoor and outdoor benches, and alternative seating for classrooms.

State Assessments

We have one more State Assessment to go. Algebra 1 Keystones are on May 21 & 22. These tests are only for students who are finishing Algebra 1 this year. To prepare for the assessments, students are encouraged to go to bed early, eat a healthy breakfast and bring water, a calculator, and two #2 pencils. Students may not bring any unapproved electronic devices: cell/smartphones, smartwatches, ereaders, tablets, etc. For more information and frequently asked questions about state assessments, click here.

Throughout the year, Tamanend staff members look for examples of students showing Respect, Achievement, and Responsibility... R.oA.R. Those students are given "Tiger Tracks" tickets which students can enter into a drawing. Each Friday, Mr. Boyle draws one student's Tiger Track and announces the winner on our Tamanend Today Show. The winner can pick from a number of prizes including great coupons from Subway, Rita's, Randazzo's, Yogurt Tree, and Moe's!

The following students were recent weekly winners!
