Taft May 12, 2023 announcements
Note from Mr. Fedders:
We have a few busy weeks of school ahead!
1st and 3rd graders will participate in a health care camp this Tuesday, May 16th, to learn about all that hospitals do for the community. This will be in the ALPHA gym.
On Tuesday, May 23rd, we will have our 3rd-6th grade track meet. Field events will occur at Taft that AM; we ask that parents don’t attend this half of the day due to space. The running events are open to parents and families. We will begin these at 12:00 at the HS track.
On Thursday, May 25th, K-2 will have their Fun Day at Taft from 1:00-EOD. Again, parents will not attend this due to space issues here at Taft.
Finally, the 4th-grade graduation is scheduled for Friday, May 26th at 9:45 in the HS Auditorium. This is open to parents and families. We are looking forward to a great last few weeks!
For the track meet and fun day, please send your child with a water bottle and sunscreen; these two days are normally warm and/or humid!
The Humboldt County Fair invites girls completing 1st grade through 4th grade to participate in the Junior Miss contest. Please submit the Contest Form by midnight on July 14th, 2023. Junior Miss candidates will be introduced and asked one question on stage. We look forward to meeting you in the Polka Hall building at 6:45pm on Wednesday, July 26th, 2023. Any questions please contact Kylee Myott at (515) 321-6304 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There is still time to order a yearbook! Mease & Taft have decided to move our yearbook deadline to May 19th. Yearbooks will then be ordered during the summer and handed out at the beginning of the school year next year. This way we are able to include all the fun activities that happen at the end of the school year! Yearbooks are $19.
