If you are new to our neighborhood and need to register your child for the 2018 / 2019 school year, please stop by the office now. Kindergarten registration is for children who reach the age of five prior to September 1st, 2013. Bring these to registration: immunization record, certified birth certificate, and current utility bill. Please let your friends and neighbors know who have kindergarten age children. Don't wait until August to register!

All Mesa Public Schools elementary schools have mail-in registration this summer for current (continuing) students. Our parents will receive a packet mailed to their home address in early July to complete and we ask parents to return the completed registration forms no later than the 3rd week in July in the mail. The packets contain the free/reduced meals application. Call our office at (480) 472-9100 to check to see that we have the latest data for you.

Students new to Taft can always register every day of the week when the office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..

Transportation will be provided for all students living within our school boundaries where transportation is usually provided.
