Welcome back to School!

We were excited to welcome our 51 students on
September 1. The year is already off to a great start, and we look forward to another fantastic year filled with fun and learning!


To My Dear Maidelach,

How exciting to start off a new school year. Working in the building during the summer, preparing for school, is a strange experience. It's like Shabbos, without (chas v'shalom) the nairos(candles). Our girls bring the meaning, the essence, into the beautiful building. Speaking of Shabbos, we are thrilled that the G.O. has chosen this for "theme of the year". As we are headed through the month of Elul and the Yomim Noraim (High Holidays), we hope to hear more words of inspiration in regard to the Shabbos. During these days of taking on kabbalos (commitments) for the year, perhaps we can accept upon ourselves to bring the meaning, the essence into the beautiful day of Shabbos.   Perhaps we can increase our zehirus (attention to) the halachos (laws) of Shabbos, and in bringing more kavod (honor) and kedusha (holiness) to the special day that Hashem has gifted to us. With our extra efforts, may Hakadosh Boruch Hu grant us many happy and restful Shabbosos, till moshiach comes.... And beyond!

The Choice is...OURS!


TAM families are now eligible to participate in the School Choice tuition voucher program.


This development comes after significant changes in state regulations overseeing the initiative. The new policy allows residents of the city of Milwaukee to receive Choice funding for any school in Milwaukee County.


In addition, the income cap has been raised to 300% of the Federal Poverty level, which will allow for higher rates of participation.


TAM looks forward to the future with School Choice!

TAM Receives New Chemistry Grant



Congratulations to TAM Chemistry Teacher Ms. Bryna Goeckner for securing a $1485 ACS-Hach High School Chemistry grant for the upcoming year.

According to Ms. Goeckner, the grant will allow students to collect live data during chemistry experiments. In addition, most of the equipment could also be used as the basis of what is needed for physics.

"This will be a great way to get the girls excited about science while giving them experience using equipment that more closely resembles the equipment used by scientists today," she said.
