Student Art Honored

Congratulations to 7th grader, Auggie D., whose artwork was just recently installed at their student art gallery at the Bucks County IU after being chosen at the District Art Show last spring. Auggie's work is representative of CBSD students and will be displayed for one year. Well done, Auggie!

Tamanend Middle School PSSA & Keystone Testing Dates

7th Grade:

  • English/Language Arts (ELA): April 14-17
  • Math: April 21-23

8th Grade:

  • English/Language Arts (ELA): April 14-17
  • Math: April 21-23
  • Science Tests - April 28-29

Keystone in Algebra:

  • May 13-14


The best way to prepare for test days (and all school days) is for students to get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and bring a bottle of water and a snack to school. Students should bring two #2 pencils for all testing days. Students should bring a calculator for the math tests. Students should NOT bring their phone or any other personal electronic devices to school on testing days.

Tiger's Eye

"If we look at each other and each situation through the lens of the Tiger's Eye, we will remember that we are Tamanend Together."

Reminder: Students Should Arrive to School After 7:10 and Before 7:30 AM

For supervision and safety reasons, students may not be dropped off at school before 7:10 a.m. If you are driving your student to school and arrive before 7:10, please remain in your car with your student until 7:10 a.m.


Note: Student Athletes are able to bring their equipment (e.g., softball and baseball) on the bus with them.

Lost and Found

We have gathered all lost and forgotten items. If you are missing clothes, shoes, coats, glasses, or even a phone, please visit Tamanend's Main Office Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. All items not claimed will be donated on March 31st.
