Raider News 8/10/21

Raider Families,

It is hard to believe we have completed our third week of school. Progress reports will be available in HAC this coming Monday September 13th. Please continue to monitor your student's progress. Although we are on a 9 week grading cycle , the end of the first 6 weeks of school will also determine our student's UIL eligibility. (No pass, no play) This affects all students in extracurricular organizations (athletics, fine arts, ROTC),. Please help us continue to encourage your students to keep up with their assignments and grades.


Respectfully,


Marti Fernandez

Taft High School Principal

Open House is a time to meet teachers and receive important information pertaining to each subject. If you would like a parent/teacher conference, please schedule one with the teacher at a different time as we want our teachers to be able to visit with all families.
