Congratulations Montessori Kindergarten Teacher, Mary K Shaver! San Joaquin A+ Educator of the Year!
Taft Hmong Dancers and Ballet Folklorico at Magnet Fair!
Thank you Jill Fritchen! San Joaquin Board Trustee!
Since the Home Depot donation of $3,000, matching costs in vendor assistance, and labor from several of their Northern California stores, other community partners have joined in the major revival of the Taft Botanical Gardens. Elks Lodge Representative, Connie Revay, became involved and presented the Elks Lodge "Plant a Promise" drug awareness program. The Elks Lodge donated $1,000 and several plants and seeds to literally plant a promise. Connie Revay and mascot "Elroy the Elk" put together an assembly with the police department and their drug sniffing dog! Then, at the Juneteenth celebration in Taft Park, Khubaka Michael Harris (Black Agriculture) saw the Taft garden from behind and asked attendee Gloria Allen, SUSD trustee area 1 about the garden. That was the spark that brought Michael on board with Taft Botanical Gardens. Since then he has brought together many different organizations such as San Joaquin Delta College, ARC of San Joaquin, Central Valley Harvest, Taft Community Center, University of California Cooperative Extension, San Joaquin County Youth FSNEP Program, and many others. Exciting partnerships continue to evolve as others join us in our growing outdoor classroom!

Accelerated Reader information
Due to circumstances we could not control (technology issues, etc.) Taft School got a late start with the ability to log in to Accelerated Reader. Nothing keeps Taft students and teachers down for long, however. Look out AR schools!
Here's how many countries have visited our site!
