We Are Together Tamanend!
October 21, 2016
World Language Culture Day
Freshman Trench Warfare Day
9th Grade History students assessed their knowledge of WWI in an interactive, experiential activity. After learning the details of trench warfare in Europe, students became soldiers of the Allied or Central Powers and completed various challenges in the trenches while avoiding the “artillery” of their teachers. Thank you Mr. Blair, Mr. Heisey, and Mr. Higgins for this extended learning experience!
Tamanend Halloween Spirit
Every year, students are allowed to dress up for Halloween and compete in several categories for best costumes. All costumes must meet the Tamanend Dress Standards. It is the expectation that all costumes are respectful to individual people and groups of people. For safety and security reasons, students are not permitted to have anything resembling a weapon as part of their costume, and they may not cover their faces with masks or face paint. In light of the attention and sensitivity regarding some of the recent social media posts, we are asking students to avoid all costumes that involve clowns. Thank you for discussing this with your student as he/she plans to join in Tamanend's Halloween Spirit.
C is for Cookie- Cookie Dough Pick-up- Save the Date
Cookie dough pick-up will be Thursday, November 3rd from 2:30PM-6:00PM in the cafeteria. Cookie dough is delivered refrigerated and can sit at room temperature for up to six hours. We have very limited cold storage space, so please pick up your order ASAP. If your child sold 1-2 tubs of cookie dough, they can pick it up at the end of the day in the cafeteria and take it home on the bus. All other orders will need to be picked up in the school cafeteria between 2:30PM-6:00PM on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016. Please come to the cafeteria using the gym entrance doors. Cookie dough orders will be organized alphabetically and our NJHS and Student Council Officers will be there to assist you.
8th Grade L2U - Nominations Due TODAY!
Throughout the year, and especially in Tiger's Eye, we support our students in finding their voice and to "stand up" for themselves and others. Once our students leave Tamanend and go on to CB South High School, building student advocacy is continued and broadened through a program called "First LINK." As a part of LINK's service outreach, those South students work with our Tamanend students to foster community building and servant leadership. We call this "Link to Unity" or L2U for short. November 12 is for 8th Graders.
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.
