Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Sunday update. This is our last week of online learning before going on to winter break.

The grading period for Progress Report 2 closed on Friday, December 4, 2020. Grades will be available on PowerSchool on Friday, December 11, 2020. It is very important that students keep with their assignments and for our families to be in communication with our teachers during this time. Even though the school is closed, teaching and learning is still at the heart of our work. If you have any concerns about your child’s grades, please contact your student’s teachers via email. Any other concerns may be directed to our Head Counselor I, Mrs. Sanchez at [email protected].

Thank you for supporting our grade level assemblies!

Our Restorative Justice Coordinator, Mr. Ron Montoro, and our Head Counselor I, Mrs. Jessica Sanchez will be hosting voluntary grade level assemblies the last week before winter break. We will meet on Zoom from 8:35 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. The code for these optional assemblies is 885 3832 2810. This month we will be focusing on preparing for our future success in high school. We will have a promo video from Kearny High School available for our students.

Our grade level assemblies will be held on the following dates:
6th Grade--Tuesday, December 15, 2020
7th Grade--Wednesday, December 16, 2020
8th Grade-Thursday, December 17, 2020

The LCFF form can be completed on the Parent PowerSchool Portal please check our website for directions. Our deadline was extended to Friday, December 18, 2020. These forms are important as they directly impact the funding that Taft will receive for our students next year. Families who need paper copies of the LCFF Forms or anyone who needs assistance with the Parent PowerSchool Portal may contact Mrs. Marsha McNeil at [email protected].

Congratulations to the over 200 students who earned a 3.0 grade point average or above during this difficult time on Zoom. We want to recognize the effort and discipline of our students who had success in online learning during Quarter 1.

If you or your student were unable to pick your Honor Roll certificate on Saturday, we are happy to mail it to you via U.S. mail. Please let Mrs. Marsha McNeil know if your mailing address needs to be updated. Her email address is [email protected].

Winter Break will begin on Monday, December 21, 2020, and end on Friday, December 31, 2020. Online classes will resume on January 4, 2021.

On behalf of the Taft Team, we want to thank our parents and families for your support. Thank you for being our partners in Zoom, Moby Max, Clever and online learning in general. We could not do this work without you. We hope everyone has a safe and restful break.

Thank you and go Eagles!
