We Are Together Tamanend!
June 19, 2017
So many great things happened in the last week and two days of school! Mrs. Leatherbarrow always tells us that at Tamanend we finish strong, and we certainly did just that!
Freshman Day & Dance:
On June 9th, our 9th graders enjoyed their Freshman Day at Briarwood Day Camp and celebrated being Tamanend Together one last time at the Freshman Dance. We thank our teachers, parents and Mr. Boyle for all of their work making this day so special for our 9th graders.
Also on June 9th, our 7th and 8th graders listened to 8th grade student leaders talk about how they planned to serve Tamanend if elected to Student Council Office for the 2017-2018 school year. We congratulate the following student leaders:
Kat M., President
Garrett M., Vice President
Cadence M., Secretary
Aaron F., Treasurer
We thank and congratulate all students who ran for office and encourage them to reach out to Mrs. Leatherbarrow about serving as a Link Leader next year.
The Tamanend Gold'n'Blues joined the Holicong H-Factor and the Tohickon Chamber Choirs to perform at Valley Square on Saturday, June 10th. The students entertained the crowd for two hours of beautiful music selections. They closed with a combined performance of "Connected" composed by Brian Tate. Enjoy the video above.
On Monday, June 12th, we closed the day with our RoAR Talent Show in celebration of everyone's Respect, Achievement, and Responsibility throughout the year. Not only was it a tremendous showing of the many talented people at Tamanend, but it also highlighted how positive and supportive our school community is as they enjoyed the performances. Bravo all!
On Tuesday June 13th we held our Closing Ceremony, a Tamanend tradition steeped in the values first adopted from our namesake, Chief Tamanend. We wished farewell to our Freshman Class, Miss Kathleen Britt, Mrs. Erica Penn, Mr. Steven Love and Mrs. Sharon Casciole. We heard reflections from former Tamanend students as we presented awards for school involvement, service, leadership, and scholarship. We closed singing our Alma Mater and waved goodbye to all of our students as the buses took them home for summer.

Report cards are available on the Portal right now. Paper copies of report cards are not mailed home.

Throughout the year, Tamanend staff members look for examples of students showing Respect, Achievement, and Responsibility... R.oA.R. Those students are given "Tiger Tracks" tickets which students can enter into a drawing. Each Friday, Mr. Boyle draws one student's Tiger Track and announces the winner on our Tamanend Today Show. The winner can pick from a number of prizes including great coupons from Subway, Rita's, Randazzo's, Yogurt Tree, and Moe's!
The following students were recent weekly winners!
