By now, you may have heard about Sora, AAPS's new and exciting online eBook platform that the district now uses to virtually circulate and assign high interest reading/listening materials to our students virtually.
You may have questions, or would simply like to learn more about this great new resource. If so, please join Mr. Kipp (Tappan librarian) the evening of Tuesday, January 12 from 6-7pm for an information presentation and Q & A.
In the meantime, here are some links that may be interesting to you and help you learn more about Sora.

Welcome to Tappan Middle School! We are a school commUNITY that is dedicated to enriching the lives of our students. We believe our students are capable of academic success. The staff and faculty work diligently in an effort to provide a rigorous curriculum in a safe learning environment.
The middle years can be fun and challenging for many students. We pride ourselves in building authentic academic relationships with our students, while helping them to reach their greatest potential as they journey through their middle years.
We pride ourselves in our diverse student population. Students are ultimately enriching their own lives as they learn about and celebrate the differences in others.
The mission at Tappan is to come together to design a school community where everyone will have fun, love learning, want to excel, achieve to their potential, and care for each other. We will accomplish this mission in the following ways:
Tappan Middle School will be a rigorous learning environment where there are high academic and behavioral expectations for all students, and where all students achieve at high levels under the facilitation of skilled, effective, culturally competent educators.
Here is a video that explains how to open locks similar to what you will find on your locker.
Here is something you can print out and put in your planner as a reminder:
Our School was built in 1951 and named in honor of Mr. Henry Phillip Tappan, the first President of the University of Michigan (1852). Henry Phillip Tappan was a Reverend, educator and philosopher. Of strong conviction and personality, he found compromise difficult, if not impossible. Dr. Tappan resigned from the University of Michigan in 1863. He is known as a distinguished thinker and has authored several books. Tappan Elementary School was built on East University Ave., Ann Arbor, in 1885. It was sold to the University of Michigan in the 1920s and renamed East Hall. Burns Park Elementary School built in 1925, was originally Tappan Junior High. In 1951, Tappan moved from the Burns Park location and took its name with it.
