This year the Taft literacy team of Mary Adams, Nina Urban-Hettich and Lena Schwarz have taken the funds donated to the 2021 Christmas Card program and spread them as far as possible to reach every student at Taft Elementary with all students in our four adopted class’s each receiving a monthly book and all Taft students receiving at least one book this year. Books have also been purchased for a teacher library, the student library and the new book vending machine. Thank you to this team for their huge hearts for literacy and their tenacious creativity in finding books to reach as many children as possible.
The new Heidi Johns library and maker space at Taft is in the process of being assembled! The room is currently full of boxes and the school has asked for help in turning this into the library. The first work days to unpack the boxes and to start to put together the library will be June 29 and 30 anytime between 8:00 and and 2:30 pm. If you are able to to work anytime in this two day period please let Sue Matz know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
