Rockin' Neon Fall Dance!

Student Council Officers organized a rockin' fun Fall Dance! The theme was simple but yet awesome... NEON! The students were terrific. Everyone had a great time, including our Tiger! Congratulations Student Council and thank you Mme. Orinski, Miss Vitacco and all of our teacher and parent chaperones!

New Clubs

With the new middle school schedule, we were also afforded the opportunity for new after school clubs to lengthen our already impressive after-school activities list. Check out our Club web page for more information!

Southside Hurricane Relief Effort

Don't forget to sponsor your student to participate in the Walk for Relief next Wellness Friday, October 13. We hope to raise money for recent hurricane victims while having fun together walking for exercise.

Go to My Payments Plus to sponsor your student(s). Thank you!

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.

Locking Lockers: We assign students lockers so that they can secure their belongings during the day. However, some students prefer to leave their locker unlocked so that it is easier to get into it each time they need something. Students, you must lock your lockers for the protection of your belongings.

Labeling Belongings: Every year we collect an exorbitant amount of clothing, shoes, eye glasses and more in our lost and found. We return items that have their names on them. We advertise for students and parents to look for lost and found when we put items on display. Still, we end up donating many items to charity. Students, please label your belongings so that if you do lose them, they are returned to you.

Rainy Day Traffic

On rainy days, we create our own traffic with an increase of students who become car riders. Please allow your student to ride the bus if they are a regular bus rider. A good compromise that won't cause school traffic and lateness to work and school is to drive your student to the bus stop. Thank you for your cooperation.
