Ten contestants from 7th and 8th grade (Logan C, Mary D, Tommy D, James F, Sabrina H, Joseph K, Ryan M, Kyle S, James W and Srikar Y) answered questions in front of a lively audience, each vying for the coveted title of SCHOOL CHAMPION!

9th Grade Orchestra Lock-In
Tamanend Middle School hosted along with Lenape Middle School the first 9th grade Orchestra Lock-In on January 15th. The students enjoyed pizza, played games, watched part of a movie, and rehearsed a little bit for this coming Friday's VH1 Save the Music Concert performance. Mrs. Tosti said, "the two schools enjoyed getting to meet one another and compared schools, stories, and finding out how similar they were. It was a great evening to relax and just be kids." The students are very excited for their performance on Friday. It's the first time that both schools have ever performed together and what better way than to be able to help others through the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
