Nick Lupo, Principal

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Fall Newsletter,

As the new Principal of Taft 7-12, let me welcome all families and students to the 2018-2019 school year.  It brings me great joy to continue the journey with your children from Taft Elementary to the Middle and High school levels.  This year we have some exciting new things to highlight at the school including all of our programs such as: AVID, GEAR UP, Music, and CTE(Career and Technical Education).  We will be continuing our school wide implementation of AVID with the addition of planners and a binder system for all 7th and 8th grade students.  Teachers will be utilizing the professional development trainings they have attended this summer and incorporating more critical reading strategies in each of the content areas.

The district has also been working this summer to rollout SW-PBIS (School wide –Positive Behavioral Intervention Systems).  At the beginning of the year, students will be taught school-wide expectations for each of the areas of the school.  Teachers and students will work together to build up the school culture and increase our Tiger Pride! We will have the acronym Tigers R.O.C.K! (R-Responsible, O-Organized, C-Cooperative, K-Kind) to help students remember the expectations.

I look forward to working with all of you this school year and can’t wait to meet the new students.  September 4th is the first day of school for 7th Grade students only and September 5th is the first day for all students.

Have a great first semester, Thank you.

Nicholas Lupo

Principal of Taft 7-12
