Taft Eagle News

Good Evening Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Monday update.   We hope everyone had a restful weekend and holiday.

Friday Schedule  

As a reminder, all students are online only on Fridays. Students are expected to check in with their teachers from 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m.  This Friday’s check in will be during period 4.



2020-2021 Testing Update

This year, middle school students did not have to take our state test, the Smarter Balanced Assessments.  Instead, students are taking 3 smaller San Diego Unified School District assessments.  Last Wednesday, students took the District Essential Mathematical Indicators (DEMI)  exam online.  This week, students will take the FAST Reading Inventory on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, and a brief Socio-Emotional Screener on Thursday, June 3, 2021.  All students, both online only and in person/hybrid will take these assessments this school year.

7th Grade Update

All 7th Grade students and families are asked to take the California Healthy Kids Survey for 2020-2021. This survey gives our school important feedback for our climate and culture.  We ask that you please take a few minutes to complete this important anonymous survey.  This survey is only for 7th Grade families.  Questions regarding the survey may be directed to Ms. Julie Eiter at [email protected].
