The Teachers and Paws Project (TAPP) was founded to serve as a resource for educators in southern New Hampshire and surrounding communities. TAPP is a membership-based non-profit organization.
It’s easy to become a member!
Are you a kindergarten through high-school educator working with students in southern New Hampshire or surrounding areas?
Or, are you a pre-school teacher willing to volunteer at TAPP for three hours a year?
Do 50% or more of your students participate in the free or reduced-lunch program? (The percentage has been reduced from 70% to 50% for 2019-2020 to encourage more teacher participation)! If not, are you willing to volunteer for TAPP for three hours a year?
Are you willing to join TAPP for an annual membership fee of $20?
Would you like to shop in our fabulous TAPPestry Thrift Store where members receive 10% off all purchases?
If you answered “yes,” then you will have access to a wide selection of free or low-cost school supplies, materials, resources and training opportunities available from the TAPP Resource Center to enhance, expand and broaden the learning process.
