From The Principal's Desk - We Love Teaching

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Taft has amazing teachers, educational assistants, and staff. The Taft Family is dedicated to students, families, and the community. I see our teachers and staff putting in countless hours after school and on weekends, they are always thinking about our little ones and how to improve on the great things they already do for our children. Please take the time to thank our teachers in person, with a note, email or a card.

Nothing is really lost until your mother can't find it.
