Note from Mr. Fedders:


Good afternoon!

Our transition days are quickly approaching.  On Monday, May 9th, our 4th graders will go to the Middle School from 2:00-2:45 to tour the MS/learn more about 5th grade.  On Monday, May 16th, our Taft students (K-3) will meet their tentative teachers for next school year and learn more about grade level expectations/activities.  The teacher assignments (again, they are tentative!) will be shared on end of year report cards.  These are both great days for students to begin to prepare/learn more about the year coming up!
