School Resumes Tomorrow, Monday, April 5, 2021

I just wanted to make sure that everyone remembers that school is back in session tomorrow. Typically we would have Easter Monday off but with the change in our calendar at the beginning of the school year this was changed to a school day!

Kindergarten Round Up

If you have a student who will be in kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year please click the button below to sign-up for a Kindergarten Round-up time slot. Each slot will provide the new kindergarten student and parent an opportunity to come in and meet Mrs. Troha. We are always excited to meet our future Vikings.


Please pass our newsletter along to your friends and neighbors if they have a kindergarten student who will be attending Taft next school year. It is difficult for us to get the word out to families who may not have students at Taft.

Taft Facebook Page

Taft is starting a Facebook page as a means to communicate with our families. Please use the bottom link below to access our page. We will begin to post important communications to the Facebook page in an effort to get the information out to more parents.

Board of Education Meeting Date Change

Our next Board of Education Meeting will be held at 6:15 PM on April 28, 2021. The meeting was changed to combine the regular meeting and the needed reorganization meeting due to the election being held on April 6th. It is more efficient for the school board to hold both meetings at the same time and due to the timing of the election, it would not be possible to hold the reorganization meeting during the regularly scheduled meeting.
