Note from Mr. Fedders:

Good afternoon!

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Be sure to thank your child’s teacher for the countless hours and hard work that has been put into our student’s education here at Taft this school year!  We are thankful to the work that they do on a daily basis to positively impact students.

We have a busy final three weeks of school coming up; be sure to check the important dates below to see when students may be out of the building or at a special event at Taft.
