September ’17 News

The 2017-2018 school year has started with some exciting events!

First,  we welcomed all of our Tarleton friends to open  the brand new school playground, with a ribbon cutting ceremony by alumni Senator Warren Kampf & Barbara Smith, our school director.  The children had a blast on the new equipment and reconnecting with their school friends after a long summer!

The students have all been very busy in their classrooms and are off to a wonderful start!

Also this month, the TPA hosted the Back to School Cocktail Party at Tarleton.   With a delicious spread of food, and plenty to drink, the parents all enjoyed a nice evening out socializing with their Tarleton friends, and staff.

We look forward to the infamous Tarleton Halloween Parade & our TPA Fall Festival next month!

Summer Camp

The Tarleton school year has ended, but many of our friends continue through the month of June for our Tarleton Camp Program.  Here, the children enjoy many special science & art projects, water table, cooking & more fun themed activities.

Annual Tarleton Parents Association Fundraiser

Tarleton’s Annual TPA Fundraiser event was held this year at the Radnor Hunt Club, perfect for the night’s Derby inspired theme, “Run for the Roses!”  The auction was a huge success, generating over $25,000 for the Tarleton School & its students through the many incredible live & silent auction items, and of course the class projects, class photo’s and raffles.

Thank you to our auction leads, Sarah Beres & Amanda Holmes, and their entire committee for all of their hard work and dedication in making this years event so special.

Tarleton Family Dance

On Sunday, 2/21 the TPA hosted their annual Family Dance.  The children had a blast dancing, playing and crafting together while their parents got some time to socialize and enjoy a nice lunch.

Special Thanks to Dave Marsh & The Main Line School of Rock for providing the perfect party room, and The Party Shop Berwyn for the fantastic balloons!

Family Outing at Busy Bees Art Studio

Tarleton families gathered together last Sunday at the Busy Bees Art Center in Frazer, for a few hours of open studio time, pizza & snacks.  The children all enjoyed painting their own pottery selections & spending some time with each other outside of school. Thank you to everyone who came!

Family Bonfire & Hayride

On Saturday, November 7th, we gathered at Sugartown Strawberries for a hayride and bonfire.  The children had a blast roasting hot dogs, making s’mores and playing as the sun set over the fields.  Thank you to all the families who joined us!


What Our Parents are Saying
My favorite thing I learned at Tarleton was French and Spanish.  If I hadn’t learned French at Tarleton, I would never have known about French because they don’t teach French yet at my school.
