  • Curriculum Night was a huge success! Thank you to Book Fair parent coordinators (Julie Chesser and Jen Rivera) for the fall book fair.  It was a huge success!

  • Please remember when parking for events to be respectful of surrounding properties/driveways.

  • Drop-off/Pick-up Lines: Don’t forget about the opportunity to utilize 17th street as well. This option, as suggested by the Lockport Police Department,  will alleviate some of the congestion on 16th street.

  • Planning ahead to  Friday, October 6 which is a 11:30 a.m. dismissal and Fall Pictures.  Teachers will have the opportunity to expand their learning and observe teachers in classrooms outside of Taft.  Therefore, teachers will be exiting the building shortly after the students in order to be at their school to observe.

  • Congratulations to the students who participated in the IXL program over the summer. You will be receiving your Free Happy Meal from McDonald’s, courtesy of the Lockport  9th street McDonald’s.  Many thanks to them for their generous donation!

  • Please remember not to have students arrive to school until 8:10 a.m.  From the perspective of school safety and supervision, school supervisors are on the playground by 8:10.

  • Planning ahead to  Halloween on October 31 which is a 1:45 dismissal. - For student safety, costumes must conform to Taft Dress Code, nothing revealing or violent. Please no clowns. We ask that all weapon props are left at home. Students will have a chance to put their costume on at school so they should be able to dress themselves and refrain from use of elaborate makeup. Only Kindergarten students may wear their costumes to school. The Parade will begin at 1:15 p.m.
