Message from Mr. Fedders

Good afternoon, Taft families!

We’ve had a great first week and a half back in school so far; students and staff have done a tremendous job of settling into routines and expectations.  There have definitely been some tweaks with schedules/routines along the way, but students have been flexible throughout them!  I did want to mention one quick note - we don’t have supervision outside of Taft until 7:40 in the morning; some students are arriving as early as 7:25.  Please do not have students arrive until closer to this 7:40 time please!  Thanks so much for your help in the area, and have a great weekend!


No School on Monday, September 6th as we observe Labor Day.  Enjoy your long weekend!


Activity Tickets are available for purchase in any school office.  Cost is $60 for a student in grades kindergarten through 4th grade. There is no charge for Preschool to attend regularly scheduled athletic events at Humboldt High School.  We also have adult athletic tickets for sale at a cost of $45 for a ten punch pass.    

PATHS (Parents and Teachers for Humboldt Students) will meet on Tuesday, September 14th in the Mease Board Room at 5:30 p.m.  All parents of Mease and Taft students are welcome to attend. If you have any questions please email  


School Pictures - Midwest Portraits will be at Taft on September 23rd to photograph all students and staff.  There will not be picture packets sent home in advance. Instead you will receive an email with the link to order school pictures after you have had a chance to proof your child’s photo. If you have any questions please contact Midwest Portraits at 515-332-8175.
