Caine's Arcade at Tamanend

Inspired by Caine's Arcade, Mrs. Brumbaugh's Technology Ed students used their own creativity, cardboard, and Makey Makey to create an arcade that 7th Grade Science students from Mrs. Gamble, Mr. Lenet and Mrs. Wilhelm classes enjoyed seeing and playing. The 7th grade students also learned about Caine and his story in their English classes. Mrs. Brumbaugh’s students used the Makey Makey Invention Kit to hook their games to a computer program to create timers, scoreboards and computer interactions. Students learned problem solving skills, teamwork, computer programing and electronic circuitry throughout the entire project, while having fun!

Halloween Spirit - Reminder

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. Thank you for discussing this with your student as he/she plans to join in Tamanend's Halloween Spirit.
