Tamanend Connections

We Are Together Tamanend!

Veteran's Day Assembly

In a special Veteran's Day Assembly, Tamanend students and staff honored our currently serving and veteran soldiers. The Naval Weapon Systems Support Philadelphia Color Guard presented our nations "colors." Mr. Albert Moss, veteran of World War II who fought in D-Day, spoke about why he served our country and what it means to him to be a veteran. Our musical groups performed patriotic and military pieces and students read passages and quotes from our nation's leaders, past and present. We thank everyone for their participation. But most of all, we thank all of our veterans and currently serving military for your service and sacrifice for our country. Happy Veteran's Day.

8th Grade Revolutionary Life Day

Our 8th Graders dressed, danced, ate, played games, and made crafts as they would have during the Revolutionary War days.
