Our Enrichment Activities
Our library is open during lunch and on Thursdays after school for families to visit and use.
Taft partners with Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula and Police Activities League to provide an after school program. Program activities include academic instruction, homework support, enrichment classes, life skills classes, and recreation. Additional information is available in the school office and at the Family Center.
In conjunction with an advisor 4th & 5th grade students meet every monthly during lunch time. Student Council runs spirit days, fundraising, and other school wide activities. The goal of Student Council is to provide the students with a voice in school decision-making.
