Tamanend Connections

We Are Together Tamanend!

May 13, 2013

Engineering in Action

Students in Mrs. Brumbaugh's Engineering classes researched aerodynamics as they designed then built their own CO2 cars. Students enjoyed collaborating as they worked and cheered each other on while each car was tested. Congratulations to Amy M. whose car reached a speed of 75 mph!

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

TMS Staff Appreciation Day

We appreciate all of the TMS parents who made Staff Appreciation Day so special. Everything was delicious! It was so nice to sit with colleagues and enjoy the luncheon together. Special thanks to Mrs. Christine Pataki for coordinating the luncheon.
