Note from Mr. Fedders:

Good afternoon!

I hope that everyone had a great full week back at school!  It was great to begin to settle into some routines as the week continued.  On Tuesday, we had our local EMS, Police/sheriff, Fire, and Bus Departments here for a brief back-to-school safety overview.  Students reviewed bus expectations and safety procedures, along with some general safety information, like crosswalk, walking, and biking to school safety.  Thanks to all of these organizations for partnering with us on this day!

It’s also been a great past few weeks at Taft with construction on our new addition beginning; footers have already started to be poured.  There is obviously a lot of work to be done before we have a finished project, but progress is great to see!

Picture day for Mease & Taft is September 14. High School & Middle School Picture Day is September 12. Retake Day is September 28. Flyer
