Freshman English Summer Assignments

Some of the folders distributed at New Student Orientation in May mistakenly contained the summer assignments for both 9th and 11th grade English. All incoming TAG freshmen should complete only the assignments titled “Freshman English Summer Reading” and “Freshman Summer Reading Log.” Both assignments are available at the following link: http://www.tiny.cc/TAGfreshman.

TAG apologizes for the mistake and for any inconveniences caused by it. If you have any questions about the summer assignments for freshman, please contact Ms. Greer at ggreer@tagmagnet.org.
