Over the next 2 weeks, we are having a PTSA student membership drive. The first home room in each grade level to reach 100% membership will earn donuts one morning. The grade level with the largest percentage of membership by Nov. 1st will earn a Dress Down Day.

Students can download a membership from this website under the forms section. Return completed form with $5 dues to the orange PTSA mailbox located near the tiger pole.

We will also be selling memberships during  conference week each afternoon as well as each Friday morning before school.

“The Magic of the Moment….” is the theme for the 2012-2013 PTA sponsored Reflections Program. Reflections is an art program for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. It is an opportunity for every student to express themselves in any or all of six art categories. These categories are: Visual Arts Literature Photography Musical Composition Dance Choreography Film/Video Production

Interested students should submit their work that expresses their best interpretation of “The Magic of the Moment”. Students can pick up entry forms and individual category rules from Ms. Bonadonna, the art teacher at Tapp or you can see the links below.
All artwork is due by Tuesday, October 16th. There will be a collection box in Ms. Bonadonna’s room. Artwork will be judged at the school level, then winners will advance to the South Cobb Council level.
The PTA Reflections Program also encourages our special needs students to participate in the program. If you have a student in inclusion, containment or resource classes, they can enter Reflections as a Georgia Special Artist. Please download the Special Artist entry form and submit the student’s entry on October 16. Please make sure the entry form is signed by the student, parent and Special Education teacher.
There is no limit to the number of projects a student may enter.
