Principal's Message from Sunday, September 27, 2020

Taft Eagle NewsDear Taft Families,

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


Thank you to our families who were able to join us on Thursday night for our online Open House. For those who were unable to make it at that time, we are including information on Title I.

Check out these slides to learn more about Title I: Title I Information


Parent volunteers are needed to serve on our School Site Council and School Governance Team. Both of these committees give advice on how to best use our resources to support student learning. It is a time commitment of approximately 1 hour a month. Please email Principal Garcia-Rubio at [email protected] if you are interested in being on the parent ballot. Elections will be coming up soon.


We are offering supplies for our students and this is optional. We will be distributing materials that support learning on the following days:

6th Grade and make ups--Monday, September 28, 2020 from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

Students will receive mini-whiteboards to show their work in math as well as a whiteboard marker and a journal to record their responses. 6th Grade students will receive materials for planting at home as practice for planting in our Taft garden.

Students and families who come on campus must follow all safety protocols including wearing facial and nose coverings at all times.


We understand that it is difficult to communicate with our office as we are still closed. We will have live online Zoom sessions Monday through Friday from 8-11 a.m. during the month of September.

The links is below:

8 a.m. - 11 a.m.

The first grading period for this quarter will end Friday, October 2, 2020. Students and families will be able to see the grades for this mini-term on Power School by Friday, October 9, 2020. This is a great opportunity to catch up. The quarter will end on Friday, October 30, 2020. Students will have new classes on Monday, November 2, 2020, when we begin Quarter 2.

On behalf of the Taft Team, we appreciate our families and our community. Your grace and your patience during this time has been extraordinary.

Thank you and go Eagles!
