Fall Dance

We thank our Student Council Officers for a spectacular fall dance. The theme was "Rock of Ages." Special highlights were the music selfie stations from the last four decades. We thank everyone for coming out. Thank you Madame Orinski and Miss Vitacco and all of our staff and parent chaperones!

Fall Clubs

Our first day of Fall Clubs was today. Tamanend runs clubs on Fridays during Resource in the Fall and again in the Spring. Clubs give our students the chance to gather socially during the school day around like-interests.

Census Verification

For any parents/guardians who did not yet complete the online census verification form for your Tamanend student(s) this year, it is imperative that you do so. Even if you do not think there is any change to your census or emergency information, census verification needs to be done each year. The verification includes:
  • emergency treatment for your student

  • permission to administer medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen

  • the opportunity for you to list any medical conditions your student has and medications they are taking

  • opportunity for you to correct medical information by indicating whether or not information is current

  • opportunities to update contact information

To access this form online, please click here. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Throughout the year, Tamanend staff members look for examples of students showing Respect, Achievement, and Responsibility... R.oA.R. Those students will be given Tiger Tracks which students can place in a Tiger Tracks 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!
