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.

Calling all Earbuds!

With the arrival of our new additional laptops, our teachers are incorporating more multi-media and differentiation in their lessons. Coinciding with this is the use of earphones to listen to screencasts and other audio or video. Tamanend has earphones available for students to use, but we encourage students to bring in their own earbuds for their personal use. Earbuds can be bought inexpensively at dollar discount stores, discount super stores, and most major pharmacies (please do not send your student to school with expensive earbuds). We recommend that students store their earbuds in a ziplock bag in ther binder pencil case when they are not in use.

CB partners with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365

Central Bucks School District has partnered with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365 to students in Grades 5-12. Office 365's productivity suite enables students and teachers to share documents, access Microsoft software applications online and work collaboratively. As the district increases both teacher and student access to educational technology, we wanted to remind you of a great opportunity.

Microsoft Office is available free for students in grades 5-12. Students may want to take the opportunity to install the full Office applications on up to 5 PCs, Macs or tablets for free. This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Students can learn more about the process here: http://www.cbsd.org/365

Once downloaded, students can work with classmates online and see each other's changes in real time with Office Online, the full version of Office or OneDrive.

  1. Log onto the Parent Portal: https://campus.cbsd.org/campus/portal/cbsd.jsp.

Support Tamanend While You Shop

If you use the following vendors, please think about supporting TMS while you shop:

  • 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.
  • If you like to shop online, check out the eScrip Online Mall. When you sign up for an account, selecting Tamanend earns money for our school.
