    Transition Day May 2nd.

    Greetings Incoming 6th Grade Tappan Families:
    Wednesday, May 2nd is Transition Day for all AAPS 5th graders in the afternoon. All students who currently are listed as "next school Tappan" or have been approved through AAPS In-District Transfer to attend Tappan for 2018-2019 are invited to visit Tappan for this special event.
    Students currently attending Tappan feeder schools will be transported with 5th grade teachers to Tappan after student lunches at their current schools. Students will return to their feeder elementary schools with elementary teachers prior to dismissal.
    During the transition day visit, 5th grade students will rotate through many of the classes offered in the "Exploratory Wheel". These classes include "PLTW" (Project Lead the Way), Music, Art, P.E., and World Languages (Spanish, French, Latin & German). Core teachers will also engage 5th graders in brief activities, in addition to a tour of the school led by current Tappan students. 
    In-District Transfer Families
    All In-District Transfer students are also invited to attend, however parents are responsible for transporting students to and from Tappan School. 
    If your child has been approved for In-District Transfer, please plan to bring your future "Tappan Trojan" to the Main Office at 11:50am. When signing-in, we will ask each parent/guardian to provide a name, contact number, and email address. Parents/Guardians of In-District Transfer students will be expected to sign-out your child at 2:30pm from the Main Office.
