Taft Latest News
In support of the "The World's Greatest Elementary School" we had t-shirts ordered for the ENTIRE school of Taft Elementary! Our students love it here and support Wayne-Westland Community Schools.
Every year the Grange, a Non-Profit Organization founded by farmers to improve agriculture, legislation, and community, donates hundreds of dictionaries to local schools. The Dictionary Program or "Words for Thirds" is a huge project that many Granges do!
This year we had a record amount of dictionaries our Grange ordered and delivered, which essentially means the number of children in need of dictionaries and the amount of which we can help is increasing.
In total, we delivered 1,200 dictionaries this year! Yet the amazing part is the impact the gift of a dictionary has on these children. And we are always happy to give these children that, the gift of knowledge!
Thank you Taft-Galloway students for leading the Pledge of Allegiance at the Oct. 15, 2018 Board of Education meeting.
