Longwood Region VIII Virtual TAG Summer Camp
There will be twelve classes in Virtual TAG with staggered start-dates, ranging from mid-June through late-July (all individual classes will run for approximately two weeks). Classes also vary in terms of their intended age-range and their levels of technology required for full participation. All of this information is explained more fully on the flyer. Students are invited to participate in UP TO TWO classes. Registration for these classes will be done through a Google form link found on the flyer. In order to make the registration process as fair as possible, registration will involve students indicating their TOP FIVE choices on the form. We will aim to enroll students in two of their top three, but we're asking for their top five in case there are classes that fill quickly. The Google form link is also found below, but parents should be encouraged to read all of the additional information on the flyer before registering their students;

Because of our desire to maintain reasonable class limits, registration for Virtual TAG will be first-come, first-served until the classes are full.
