From the Principal's Desk

Just a reminder to send the appropriate outerwear with children. Hats, scarves, coats, and boots should have students' name or initials in them. We are already experiencing lost items. Please remember to call the school office 920-751-6980, Ext. 21100 and provide child's name and the reason for absence.

Stay warm!

If you or your spouse work at Kimberly Clark, you can volunteer your time at Taft Elementary and earn money for our school! Both employees and their spouse can volunteer 30 hours each, and Taft can receive $500 for each employee/spouse. Employees can apply online at www.givingprograms.com/kcc for the Kimberly Clark Matching Grant program. If you have questions about the program, the KC employee number is 1-888-744-5638. Wells Fargo, Menasha Corporation, Menasha Packaging, Plexus and Theda Care also have similar programs. Families can also check with their employer to see if they have matching gift programs that can assist our school.
