WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU!

"What I Like About You" was a team building activity shared by the World Language Department to our faculty. Then teachers did this activity with their classes. Each student was given a blank heart on which they put their name. Then, students passed the hearts around the room so other students could write kind comments on each student's heart. The song “What I like about You” by the Romantics was played while students wrote. The class had the length of the song, three minutes, to write nice things to their classmates. Each class listened to the song twice because they were enjoyed writing positive statements about their classmates!

Mypaymentsplus.com is a new program Central Bucks School District has started using for parents to pay for their student's activities, such as field trips, clothing orders, gym uniforms and locks, freshman day, etc. The first thing you need to do is follow this link to the website, log on and set up an account. If you already have a high school student, you probably just need to link your middle school student. Permission forms or clothing orders will be attached to the Activity requesting payment. When an event or activity is set up to accept payments via this website, you will receive an email blast giving you the information for you to log on and make a payment and sign the form attached. We expect our first opportunity to use mypaymentsplus.com will be for the 9th Grade New York trip. Stay tuned for further information.

Parking Lot Safety

With the cold and wet weather we are having, many parents are choosing to drive students to school. It is recommended that parents drive your student to their assigned bus stop and wait in the car until the bus arrives. A student will never be marked tardy if they arrive by bus.


If parents decide to drive students to school, please plan enough travel time to allow for safety and congestion on Stuckert Road and in our school parking lot.


The following is a mapping of how the student drop-off works in our parking lot. Drop off should only happen where the paw prints indicate on the map. For your safety and the safety of our students, please follow these directions and do not drop your student off on Stuckert Road, the Visitor's Parking area, or in the middle of the Main Parking Area.

  • Giant Food Store has an A+ School Rewards program through their clip-less coupon card that gives money to the school you designate every time you shop. Use this link to select Tamanend as your A+ school.
  • If you shop at Target and have a Target Red Card, you can register your card for Target's Take Charge of Education program so that Tamanend receives a percentage of your spending. Target has announced that it will end this program as of May 14, 2016 but has promised a different program instead.
  • Clip and send in Box Tops to the attention of NJHS; or, shop at the Box Top Market Place where you will find vendors such as Best Buy, KMart, Justice and more.
