PTSA supports TAG

  • The Painless Fundraiser typically funds 80% of the PTSA budget
  • 100% of your donations are used to enrich the TAG curriculum and elevate the quality of your student’s educational experience

Methods of Payment: 

  • Checks payable: Contact Becky Reilly for additional instructions at
  • Online Payment is a secure & safe website for online payment, trusted by millions of consumers & businesses (per PayPal website)

Process to determine & allocate funds 

  • Faculty and staff are asked to identify classroom needs
  • The Faculty / School Request committee works with Principal Mackey, the teachers, and student clubs to support needs which would be unfunded by Dallas ISD
  • The PTSA Gifting Committee reviews and prioritizes the requests (i.e., textbooks first)
  • The recommendations of the Gifting Committee are presented to the PTSA membership for approval

2017 PTSA support of TAG

  • Buy additional AP study guides for Biology and Environmental Science
  • Assist with costs for the upcoming Pan Am Student Forum to San Antonio (so that it is affordable for all of our students regardless of background)
