Principal’s Corner

I have seen how committed our Taper Families have been to our school and our events. We’ve had successful fundraisers and parent/teacher rapport is something to be truly admired. My goals remained unchanged during our academic years: we will remain dedicated to our students’ all around success. I would like to take the time to thank all of the staff and students of Taper Avenue for their hard work and tireless efforts. As I walk through the campus and classrooms, I see grade levels diligently practicing, along with students eagerly engaging in activities that further their academic performance as well as develop the whole child. It’s moments like these that make me proud to be a Taper Tiger.

Thank you for your constant support,

Mr. Skrumbis
