As we approach the finish line in the Two Weeks for TAG campaign, TAG would like you to know exactly what you are supporting when you donate to this important fundraiser. Here is a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the incredible Resource Center that is quietly helping students succeed right in our backyard.
Torah Academy for Girls (TAG) provides a superior and inspired education in a positive atmosphere designed to provide happy and successful learning experiences. In order to meet the needs of all of its students, the school has continuously looked to expand and improve on its extensive Resource Center.
The TAG elementary school building has three resource room directors for each of its three divisions — preschool, elementary, and middle school. The preschool division employs a kriyah specialist, English reading specialist, and a kindergarten literacy specialist who work with groups and individual students, as well as collaborate with teachers to help meet all students’ needs.
The elementary division employs both English and Hebrew resource room teachers who see students both individually and in groups. In addition to related service providers including occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, counselors, and special education providers provided by the district, TAG employs three social workers to meet the emotional needs of its students and an occupational therapist who serves as a consultant in both the preschool and elementary school divisions.
In addition to the dedicated Resource Center wing which includes over 30 private therapy suites, there is a state-of-the-art sensory gym utilized by all providers to ensure that students get the highest level of therapy possible in the school setting. The sensory gym is fully equipped with sensory equipment and treatment tools, purchased with the help of the Warner Fund.
The Resource Center has an extensive supply of the latest testing tools to help evaluate and identify students’ areas of weakness. Recently, with the help of the Warner Fund, the Resource Center purchased 11 iPads to use as an adjunct in services with the latest applications to foster academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs.
TAG’s High School also boasts an extensive array of options for all students and has seen tremendous success in assisting its teenage students succeed and thrive in an advanced setting.
TAG’s mission is to elevate the level of learning so that students can grow into responsible young women who contribute to our community. That is why the school is committed to continue to develop and add to its current resources.
