National Autism Awareness Month

April is National Autism Awareness Month. Although the multicolored puzzle ribbons are synonymous with Autism awareness, bright royal blue is the official color. So, last Friday we wore blue and had a Jeans Day to raise money for the Autism Cares Foundation. (We also officially presented Danny K. with his CB Cares Boomerang Certificate, pictured above.) We raised $250! Congratulations and thank you!

Relay for Life Reminder

All Relay for Life teams must have 2 adult chaperones with the team at all times during Relay. Teams must complete a paper chaperone schedule and bring it to Señora Mars (8th grade) or Señora Corsino (9th grade) during Resource on Monday, 4/16. AFTER the paper chaperone form is completed and times are set for each chaperone’s shift, all chaperones must register online through the CB website. https://www3.cbsd.org/Pages/Relay.aspx All parents of students attending Relay should coordinate chaperone times with the team captains.

All chaperone time slots must be filled and all chaperones registered online prior to April 24th. This date is an ABSOLUTE DEADLINE. Any teams that do not have the required chaperones by April 24 will not be able to attend Relay.

Lost and Going Out on Monday

After weeks of displaying our Lost and Found in the Main Lobby, we still have three huge bags of unclaimed lost items. If not found and claimed by Monday after school, all items will be donated to A Woman's Place. We thank Mrs. Andrea Consoletti for washing, folding, returning items with names on them, displaying, and delivering unclaimed items to A Woman's Place.

Nominate a TMS Student for Boomerang Recognition

CB Cares Educational Foundation recognizes and supports the students of Central Bucks School District for living by the 40 Developmental Assets. This month's asset is Reading for Pleasure. (We should have many, many nominations this month!)


Anyone can nominate a Tamanend student. Parents/Guardians, grandparents, neighbors, siblings, friends... the more students nominated, the more there is to celebrate!


Please click here to nominate a TMS student for Boomerang recognition. Nominations are due April 23.

A Few Friendly Reminders

This coming Monday, we will go over the following reminders on our Tamanend Today Show. We ask that parents/guardians please review these with your student at home. Thank you for your support.


Water Only: We allow... we even encourage students to bring water to school. We especially encourage bringing reusable containers and using our water bottle filling stations. Water is good for us. It is especially good for our brains to stay hydrated by drinking water. We do NOT allow students to drink other beverages such as Gatorade or coffee during or between classes. If students drink those beverages, we ask that they do so before arriving to school. Students can pack and enjoy a sports drink for lunch but they must finish it before lunch is over. Water doesn’t stain, burn, or attract bugs when it spills. It is just plain healthy and all students need it during and between classes. Thank you for your respectful understanding.

State Assessments

The following state assessments are planned for students:


  • PSSA Math: April 17 & 18
  • PSSA Science: April 24 & 25
  • Algebra 1 Keystones: May 21 & 22 (PLEASE NOTE CHANGE!)


To prepare for the assessments, students are encouraged to go to bed early, eat a healthy breakfast and bring water, a calculator, and two #2 pencils. Students may not bring any unapproved electronic devices: cell/smartphones, smartwatches, eReaders, tablets,or any device that has picture-taking capability.
