Col. Michael Stoughton, Retired Marine Addresses TMS on Veterans Day

After opening our Veterans Day Assembly with the Naval Supply Weapon System Support Philadelphia Color Guard's parade of colors, Cadence M. sang our Nation's Anthem. Gavin C. and Andrea G. read the Presidential Proclamation and Aaron F. and Kelli D. shared poems about Veterans Day. Our 7th Grade Chorus, String Ensemble, 9th Grade Band and Chieftain Chorus performed. We welcomed and thanked retired Col. Michael Stoughton, U.S. Marine Corps, for serving our country and for spending his morning with us at Tamanend. Col. Stoughton, a Tamanend parent, talked to students about the impact that military service has on a soldier's family and his appreciation of the importance of family and country that he learned while serving overseas.

Raising Money to "Cure Diabetes"

Tamanend students and staff raised almost $300 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation! Students bought “Cure Diabetes” bracelets the week of October 19-23 to show their support, and many staff members contributed through a Jeans Day on November 6.

Because of all your support last year Aramark was able to donate over 500 lbs. of food to the Doylestown Food Pantry. We are hoping to beat that this year.

Parent/Guardian Volunteers Needed

Parents of middle schoolers often ask how they can get involved. Some parents say that their child does not want them to get involved. At Tamanend, there are many special things that go on throughout the school year that would not be possible without the involvement and support of our parents. Please get involved.


Volunteers must have their clearances on file with the CBSD Human Resources Department prior to starting volunteer work. The new Pennsylvania State mandate does allow until July 1, 2016 to obtain background checks. However, in the best interest of the safety and security of our students, we are asking volunteers to comply with submitting background checks prior to volunteering in the 2015-2016 school year.

Volunteers may drop off required paperwork at the Administration Center at 20 Welden Drive.
