Our fifth graders were able to enjoy a day at the sports park honoring our veterans. They heard from a variety of speakers from our armed forces throughout the day, and were reminded of the sacrifices that have been given for our freedom. We are so thankful that our students were able to participate, and were able to learn from these veterans. We thank them for their service.

With the year finishing out, we have the last of our track meets. The third grade track meet was the first for these Barnett Bulldogs. They were awesome! They all did their very best and kept great growth mindsets. They cheered on their friends, and even kids they didn't know. Barnett formed their own little cheer squad to support all of the racers! It was a great day and all were proud to be Barnett Bulldogs!

Parent Requests

Dear Parents,

As this year comes to a close, I want to thank you for all of your support and generosity. The many hours you spend volunteering in the classrooms and at school events clearly shows how invested you are in your child’s education. I love being the Principal here and look forward to many wonderful years with you at Taylor Elementary.

I know some of you are already thinking about next year and wondering what teacher your child will have. I have already received a few requests for teachers so I wanted to explain where I stand with teacher assignments and requests. My official stance is that I do not take teacher requests. I hope this letter helps you understand why I choose this stance. The goal of the school is to provide each child with the best educational experience possible. We recognize the importance of providing high quality instruction in a safe and nurturing environment.

The teachers have been working hard to create balanced classes with their current students for next year. They take into account such things as personalities, academics, behaviors, and special needs. This is a very intensive process that pays dividends in the end. The teachers know your children so well in this environment and work hard to place them with a group of students that best fits their needs. Our experience is that balanced classes make for a better experience for the students and the teachers. I will take on the responsibility of assigning teachers to those classes and making any adjustments based on the needs of specific students.

I recognize there are a few students who have very specific needs that need to be addressed. If you feel your child is one of these, you will need to come in and fill out a specific form in our front office. The opportunity to fill out this form will ONLY be next week (May 14-18th). Forms will not be sent home with student and no emails will be accepted. This window is a tight timeline and no input will be taken after this date. I will make sure your child’s future teacher is able to meet his or her needs and provide high quality instruction. Thank you for all you do for the Payson Community.

Sincerely,

Billi Robbins

These new books, as well as the PILES of others I took out of the fairs themselves when they were here, are in our library because of the rewards we earned at our book fair this year. We earn ALL of our money at the first winter fair, and it did really well this year.  Anything that is bought at the first book fair every year, earns the school money for new library books!  Thanks to all of the students and parents that buy books from our book fairs!  Not only are you getting great reading material for your homes, but you are also contributing to new reading material for our school!
