Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Sunday update.

The grading period for Progress Report 2 closed on Friday, December 4, 2020. Grades will be available on PowerSchool on Friday, December 11, 2020. It is very important that students keep with their assignments and for our families to be in communication with our teachers during this time. Even though the school is closed, teaching and learning is still at the heart of our work. If you have any concerns about your child’s grades, please contact your student’s teachers via email. Any other concerns may be directed to our Counselor, Mrs. Sanchez at [email protected].

Thank you for supporting our grade level assemblies!
Our Restorative Justice Coordinator, Mr. Ron Montoro, and our Head Counselor I, Mrs. Jessica Sanchez will be hosting voluntary grade level assemblies the last week before winter break. We will meet on Zoom from 8:35 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. The code for these optional assemblies is 885 3832 2810. This month we will be focusing on preparing for our future success in high school.
Our grade level assemblies will be held on the following dates:
6th Grade--Tuesday, December 15, 2020
7th Grade--Wednesday, December 16, 2020
8th Grade-Thursday, December 17, 2020

The LCFF form can be completed on the Parent PowerSchool Portal. Please check our website for directions. Our deadline was extended to Friday, December 11, 2020. These forms are important as they directly impact the funding that Taft will receive for our students next year. Families who need paper copies of the LCFF Forms or anyone who needs assistance with the Parent PowerSchool Portal may contact Mrs. Marsha McNeil at [email protected].

Taft Middle School has an online App! Our App may be found by downloading “The School Planner” app on a mobile device or laptop. Please search for Taft Middle School to find our specific information.`

All Kearny Cluster elementary schools, middle schools and our high school come together 4 times a year to support our students. This is an opportunity to learn about what is happening in our Area 3 cluster.
We invite all of our Taft families to attend the Kearny Cluster Meeting this Thursday, December 10, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. via Zoom. Our Zoom code is 875 0235 8028.

Winter Break will begin on Monday, December 21, 2020, and end on Friday, December 31, 2020. Online classes will resume on January 4, 2021.
On behalf of the Taft Team, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We miss our students very much and we are here for our community.

Thank you and go Eagles!
