TAG students interested in enrolling in the Internship program during their SENIOR year need to apply for the upcoming TAG seminar called “Inside Link to the Outside World” during the JUNIOR year of school. Therefore all Junior students interested in this program need to stop by Mr. Weinberger’s room for an informational meeting on Thursday 1 September 2011. The meeting will be held in Room 407 at 4pm. I will ask students at the end of this meeting if they would like to officially take the “Link” seminar during this semester OR during Spring 2012 semester. ONLY students who have successfully completed the seminar prerequisite will be considered for the Internship program during their senior year.
