Kelly Anne Dolan Service Project Kick Off

Last Friday we kicked off our service project to raise money for the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Foundation. Students and staff wore green or KAD shirts to show their enthusiasm for this Tamanend schoolwide service project. During our assembly, 9th graders shared their past KAD memories. Mrs. Dolan recognized our school by honoring us with the KADMF Compassionate and Care Award; and special guest Dr. Green was presented with his own green KAD shirt. But KAD is not just for Tamanend students. There are many ways for Tamanend parents, families and community members to help TMS help families who are struggling to support a chronically or terminally ill child through the KAD Memorial Foundation. For more information, see our KAD web page linked below...

This is Your Brain on Adolescence

Tuesday, Jan. 8th, 7pm

Lenape Middle School

Dr. Kenneth Winters is a nationally recognized psychologist. He will be at Lenape Middle School on January 8th to talk to CB teens and parents about brain development during the teen years and the effects of drugs and alcohol on the adolescent brain. There is no admission fee for this presentation. We thank the CB Cares Educational Foundation for bringing Dr. Winters to the teens and parents of CBSD.
