Fourth quarter begins Monday, March 26, 2018 at 8 am.  TAP strongly encourages perspective students who want to enroll in 4th quarter to visit the school during February and March to tour the facility, meet with our counselor and learn about our nurseries and parenting courses.  TAP is sending a shout out to all TUSD pregnant and parenting teens to encourage you to enroll in a school that is structured to support you and your child or child to be.  TAP is structured to give you a great education in a supportive learning environment for both you and your baby. 

TAP Students Striving for Academic Success

TAP students are preparing for success on English, Math and Science End of Course State Assessments in April.  Students will be using a variety of online supports to supplement their studies and work in grade level courses in efforts to score Proficient on district and state assessments.  This success is an important part of every student's graduation plan.  New district policy also supports the earning of additional credit for students who pass ELA and math EOCs. 

Annual Field Day

TAP will hosts its annual Field Day at Reid Park on Monday, April 16, 2018.  During this special school-wide event, students learn important aspects of sun and water safety, summer community sponsored activities, and enjoy an opportunity to play and have fun (which is a rare event for many teen parents). 

TAP Practices Safety

TAP will run a lock down drill during April to ensure that all community members are prepared for potential school threats.  Due to the unique nature of our school, TAP will hold a training meeting prior to our practice lock down.  TAP practices monthly fire drills and will provide training to students on evacuation procedures in case a situation ever deems an evacuation necessary.  Lockdown drills will be practices quarterly.

Looking to help an Amazing School Provide Amazing Services?  Ways you can help TAP students and  their babies in 2018: 

Bring in the New Year by Donating Clean and Lightly used infant and toddler clothing, toys, baby books, strollers, car seats, and more.

TAP High School students benefit greatly from community donations of gently used items that support them as high school students and new parents.  TAP is also seeking monetary donations for the Gillespie Scholarship which is used to support students in paying for outside daycare when their baby ages out of TAP nurseries.  Please think about writing a small check to TAP for this purpose.  A few dollars will help to support a student to finish high school. 

Donate Emergency Food Cards

Many TAP students struggle to make ends meet for themselves and their babies.  Though TAP students benefit from a wide range of services to help provide basic necessities for their families, they often struggle to provide formula, diapers, and/or food during the last 10 days of each month.  TAP High School has been very privileged to work with many community organizations to help support our students with basic needs, but there is always a need for emergency food cards (e.g. in dominations of $10 - 25 to Safeway, Fry's, Walmart, etc.). 

Make a Tax Credit Donation

Arizona Schools benefit greatly from your tax credit dollars.  TAP will use these monies to pay for educational field trips, our character education program, and to provide additional educational experiences like music, art and tutoring.  It is not too late to donate your 2017 tax credit dollars to Teenage Parent High School by going to https://az-tucson-taxcredits.intouchreceipting.com/ .  TAP is listed under alternative schools.  TAP greatly appreciates your support and we will put your tax credit dollars to good use!  You can also make a charitable donation to TUSD's Educational Enrichment Foundation which supports TAP students with shoes, glasses, scholarships and much, much more!

Share what you know about Teenage Parent High School

The statistics with respect to teenage parents who do not complete high school are staggering!  Teenage parents often face destabilizing experiences that keep them from attending and completing high school. What can you do to help a pregnant or parenting Tucson teen graduate from high school and prepare for college or the work force?  Share what you know about TAP High School.  TAP is often the single stabilizing system that provides the opportunity for many capable teen parents to complete their high school education and plan for a well informed and supported next step so they can become strong citizens and contributing members to their children and their communities.  Give the gift of TAP High School to a teen parent by having them contact us at 520-225-3256.  We provide a caring, inclusive, safe, supportive, and engaging environment for teen parents and their infants and toddlers. TAP is an accredited high school with we provide both a valuable education in conjunction with a high level of support for teens who are facing the challenges of parenting.  In the new year, please share your knowledge of TAP with a pregnant or parenting teen who needs to finish high school.

TAP Baby and Student Clothing Bank Open

TAP High School provides a well stocked clothing bank of infant - toddler clothes and baby items.  The school also provide clothing for students in need.  Students can borrow from or contribute to the clothing bank as needed.  TAP also accepts clothing, toy, book and other baby item donations from community members in order to meet the needs of students and their babies.
