Cold Weather

Taylor Elementary News - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 6:20pm

Taylor Tigers,

I wanted to get you some information on how I decide on what Taylor School will do during the winter months.

When the temperature is below 20 degrees it will be an inside only day.

When the temperature is between 20 degrees and 32 degrees students will have a choice of being inside or outside.

When the temperature is above 32 degrees we will have an outside day.

I take conditions into account like wind, rain, snow, and ice.  32 degrees feels a lot warmer with the sun shining than it does when it’s overcast.  We will always look at the conditions!!

We also monitor air quality each day and make decisions based on it.

It is important that your child brings a coat/hat/gloves each day to school so that they are comfortable for the weather conditions.  If you have any questions feel free to email me a call the school.


Mr. Daybell

Mrs. Phelps' class had a POWerful day learning all about digraphs.  They learned that digraphs are one new sound represented by two letters such as the sh, th, ch, wh, and ph.  They used cool superhero glasses to find hidden digraphs all around the classroom.  It was amazing how quiet and hardworking these superheroes were. The class concluded that the best digraph is "PH." Can you guess why?
