PLEASE SUPPORT THE TAPPAN PTSO FUND CAMPAIGN 

Tappan Middle School PTSO is hoping Tappan families can help us make one last push to get over the top and hit our fundraising goal. The PTSO budget supports our students and teachers as well as funds school-wide enrichment projects and field trips.Experiences like the 8th grade trip to DC would not be possible without funds from the PTSO.

Please consider joining us and making your contribution today at the following link:

You can also use the form attached to the bottom of this email if you would like to use another method to donate.


ATHLETICS AND CLUBS UPDATES

Tomorrow is the last (half) day of school! A big thank you to students and families for another great year of Tappan sports. Whether students played one sport or five (the 4 Sport Banner if hanging in the Gym right now, fyi!), we hope they had a great time practicing and competing this school year, and we are already getting ready for the start of Season 1 on September 9th!

Speaking of Season 1, families are welcome to submit physicals over the summer for the 2019-2020 school year. You can drop off paper copies in the main office, or email a digital copy to etz@a2schools.org (preferred). Students must have a physical on file in order to participate on the first day of their Season 1 sport. 

Our Google Form sign up for Season 1 will go out in August - in the meantime, you can stay up-to-date on new calendars and updates from the athletic department on our Athletics Website: https://sites.google.com/a/aaps.k12.mi.us/tappan-athletics/

And finally, Tappan's summer Student Information Day will be Thursday, August 22nd. This is a great day for students and families to pick up information for the new school year, and we will have updates and schedules ready to go for our athletic teams, as well as the 2019-2020 version of our Tappan Athletics t-shirt for purchase. New and returning students/families are welcome to attend. 

Thank you for a great year of Tappan athletics! Go Trojans!


HELP SUPPORT THE TAPPAN GARDEN DURING THE SUMMER

During the school year, the Tappan Garden provides an outdoor classroom for students to learn about science, health, and more. As the school year comes to an end, there are still ways that you can help support this resource for Tappan students. 

Families are needed to help water and care for the garden every week from mid-June until the end of August. It doesn't require much time or expertise. You can also harvest some fresh organic vegetables for your family. 

For more information and to sign up, go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508054FACAF22A02-tappan

Contact coordinator Cara Lauzzana with questions, ideas, or concerns- caralauzzana@hotmail.com.  Thank you!!
