Neshaminy Manor Holiday Dinner

Tamanend students shared their holiday spirit and service with the residents of Neshaminy Manor on Tuesday, December 20. Students from our Community Service Club served dinner while our talented Jazz Band and Gold'n'Blues performed seasonal music. Everyone enjoyed good food, good music, good company, and good cheer!

District Attorney Matthew Weintraub Speaks to Freshman Class

This Wednesday, our 9th grade students had the opportunity to hear a presentation by Mr. Matthew Weintraub, Bucks County's District Attorney. Mr. Weintraub's presentation included information about the dangers of unprescribed medications, opioids, and heroin with a specific emphasis on how localized this problem has become. Local stories and videos were shared, along with strategies and solutions that students can use to make good decisions. This presentation was followed up by a Tiger's Eye discussion. We hope that students shared what they learned with their parents or guardians. Some important points to discuss are the stories shared, Bucks County's drug take-back program, Narcan, and what can be done for those who need help.

RoAR Movie Incentive Day!

To celebrate our RoAR before going home for Winter Break, students and staff enjoyed a special RoAR Movie Incentive Day. To warm up the audience, Mr. Brian Blair created an incredible movie preview of trailers created by our 9th Grade Advance Social Studies students on their C-SPAN Student Cam projects. Our featured film was Secretariat. Students were asked to look for instances of our learning motto IF-YET-TRUST throughout the movie. Any student who wants to enter a contest for a chance to win a free 2016-2017 TMS Yearbook can respond to an email from Mrs. Leatherbarrow asking for examples of IF, YET, and TRUST.

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!
