Tamanend Goes Pink!

Tamanend students and staff wore pink today to show their support for breast cancer awareness and research. Tamanend staff also participated in Denim Day, donating money toward breast cancer research. All together, it was a "Pink Out!"

9th Grade Assessment

This week we kicked off 9th Grade Assessment with an assembly and reflection activity. During 9th Grade Assessments students will be reflecting on goals under the categories of critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, along with self-direction. The reflection will assist students in understanding themselves as a learner, considering their strengths, as well as, areas they would like to work toward improving. Students will participate in activities and reflections three times during their 9th grade year.

Celebrate Education Week

Celebrate Education Week will be held beginning on Monday, October 10th. Parents/guardians are invited to visit their child’s classroom during this week. Please look for information from your child’s academic team for specific activities, times and dates as Celebrate Education Week approaches.

8th Grade L2U - Nominations Due Oct 21

To be invited to L2U, students (or parents, guardians, teachers) need to fill out a quick nomination form. We will send invitations based on nominations in late October. That means we need nominations by October 21. Students who return the signed permission to attend first will be the ones who are admitted to L2U. L2U is at Tamanend starting at 8:30 and ends at 11 a.m. Being that it is an action and learning packed two-and-a half hours, students must attend the entire session (no leaving early). Participation is free and student participants get a L2U t-shirt at the end.
