The grading period for Progress Report 2 ended on Friday, November 19, 2021.  Grades will be available to view on Power School by Friday, December 3, 2021.  Please contact our teachers directly if you have any questions regarding our scholars’ grades.


This week, we will transition to our lunch court when our gates open at 8:30 a.m.  Students will receive more information during advisory.  Construction continues to impact us as we await our joint-use park.  We thank our students and staff for their patience during his project.


We would like to ask our community if we are interested in an earlier start time for the 2022-2023 school year.  Our instruction currently begins at 9:00 a.m. and normally ends at 3:49 p.m.  An earlier start time might allow for more after-school activities and student opportunities.  A link to a very brief survey is included in this communication.  Our School Governance Team will further facilitate this discussion on Thursday, December 9, 2021, via Zoom.  All stakeholders are encouraged to participate in this recommendation for the next school year.

Looking ahead, Winter Break begins on Monday, December 20, 2021, and ends on Friday, December 31, 2021.  Classes will resume on Monday, January 3, 2022.

On behalf of Taft Staff, we want to thank all of our students for the gifts they bring to Taft.  Our scholars truly make our community an amazing place to be.

Thank you and go Eagles!
