Good afternoon!

As we mentioned in a previous message, our 3rd and 4th grade track day will look different this year due to construction beginning at the football field in late April.  It will look closer to a Fun Day than a Track Day.  Our afternoon will begin at 12:30 at the soccer field (a few blocks north of Taft.)  We will have our field events that afternoon, with an abbreviated running event due to the rough track surfacing and lack of lines on the track.  

Parents are invited to this event, but there are a few things to be aware of.  Parking will be limited around the area, and we will have ropes around the outside of the track surface with students gathered in the infield area to call for/organize events.  There will be limited access to students due to this; there will also be no announcing of events as they come up.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation with this; we plan to go back to our normal event next year!

Thank you to all who attended Literacy Night on March 21st!  It was another successful event with a great turnout and book fair sale.  We have a few special thank yous – thanks to PATHs for planning and organizing the event.  Thanks as well to Mrs. Kehoe for organizing and running the book fair!  Finally, thanks to all of our teacher volunteers for spending their evening with us at Taft!

Wildcat Strength is placing a clothing order. Orders are due by April 14th! https://humboldthighschoolweightlifting2024.itemorder.com/shop/home/
