TAG students have game. In fact, TAG is undefeated in every athletic event since the school was founded 35 years ago. Actually, while true, that’s a bit of TAG humor.
Dallas ISD magnet schools do not have athletic teams. However, that does not keep TAG students from playing sports. Dallas ISD and UIL rules permit magnet school students to play athletics for their local home high school. May TAG student take advantage of this to play football, soccer, track, cross-country, swimming, volleyball, tennis, and other sports.
TAG has finished checking out lockers to all students who wanted one. If a student has not yet gotten a locker and wishes purchase a locker for the year, they should visit Ms. Alfaro in the TAG office. The locker fee for the year is $10.
Students who will be driving to school are now able to purchase parking passes. The cost of a parking pass for the year is $5 and students can pick up a parking application in the TAG office beginning on Tuesday, September 4. Students will bring the completed application, their driver’s license, proof of insurance, and $5 to the TAG office before school or during D-lunch to Ms. Alfaro and will receive their pass.
