Tapp Spirit Night at Chick Fil-A

Tonight is Tapp Spirit Night at the Macland Chick Fil-A from 6pm to 8pm. The grade level with the most participation will win a dress down day for later this week. Be sure to tell them that you are with Tapp when you place your order.

Reflections Chair Needed

Reflections is a National PTA arts program. Students submit projects in various arts categories and the school level. Winners move on to the district, state or even national level. Categories include photography, visual arts, dance choreography, film production, musical composition, and literature.

Tapp is in need of a Reflections chair person. If you are interested in serving as the Reflections chair or if you would like more information, please contact our PTSA president, Laurie Vesper at . We need a chairperson in place by Friday, August 31st in order to participate this year.



Open House is Tonight

Tonight is Tapp’s Open House from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. It will start with a Title 1 parents meeting in the theater. Then after that, you will follow your child’s schedule. Students are welcome to attend. Overflow parking is next door at the Ron Anderson Recreation Center. Please do not park in the fire lane.

The PTSA will be selling memberships and remaining spirit wear. We did get a new shipment of the Tapp sports necklaces!
