New Tag Day Procedure

Tag Day at Archmere is a day that students look forward to each Friday. Tag Day is held every week to support a different cause. This year, new guidelines have been implemented to improve issues regarding the sale of tags. 

 

In years before, throughout the week, sales for Friday’s Tag Day have taken place during lunch and been sold by a teacher. The sales for the $2 tags would benefit a different cause each week. A problem though was the long lines. These lines took away from the students’ lunch time. However, this school year the sale of tags has been changed. Instead of buying a $2 tag each week, a $50 cover fund could be paid at the beginning of the year. If students want to support a specific fund, tags can still be purchased individually. 

 

These changes are being met with a positive response from the student body.  Danny Keenan ‘26 enthusiastically stated “It makes it more easy and convenient.” Many students find it more convenient that the $2 is not needed each week anymore. Emily Juarez ‘26 exclaimed “I have one less thing to worry about, like I don’t have to remember $2 anymore.” Overall, students are appreciative of the new changes made to tag day. 

 

Archmere will have 30 tag days this year for the 2023-2024 school year and support a multitude of organizations and groups. Causes such as the Mark Dombrowski Foundation, Maui Strong Foundation, and the Aevidum Mental Health Organization are some causes that Archmere has supported this year. 

 

Overall, Archmere’s new tag day procedure benefits the student’s time management, while still supporting these important causes.
