Help with Swimming!

Taylor Elementary News - Mon, 05/18/2015 - 10:51am

Parents! Taylor School's 3rd-6th grades will be swimming at Payson Pool on Thursday May 28th from 1-3 p.m. Payson city has asked that we bring 1 parent per 5 kids attending. That means......we need a lot of parent help! If you are able to attend, this would make it SO much easier to keep kids supervised!

If you can help, please contact your student's teacher!

* Yes, there will still be lifeguards

*Yes, you'll need to be in the water, walking around the edges, and reminding kids to follow all rules.

* Yes, a sibling/aunt/uncle over the age of 18 can count as a parent volunteer if you're unable to make it, but would still like to help.

* No little/older brothers and sisters can come unless they are a current 3rd-6th grader at Taylor.

This is always such a fun celebration day for all students attending Taylor! There is no way it could be possible without all of the volunteers that help us each year! THANK YOU!!!!!

4th grade students learned to be scientists and classify items according to the characteristics each has in common. We used potato chips as the items that students would observe, taste, and then classify using classifying diagrams such as flow charts and numbered charts. All of the students had a good time, learned a lot, and gained a pound or two.

Rain or shine (and we got a little bit of both) our carnival was a go last Friday evening.  We had a great turn-out of both parents and students who enjoyed our live band, dunking teachers and the principal in the dunk tank, pizza and hotdogs, cotton candy and more!  As a fund raiser, the PTA also sold baskets full of fun, each donated by a class at the school.  Thanks so much to all who helped make this great event happen!  We all had a ball!

The 5th grade students were taught the job responsibilities of a K-9 dog.  K-9 dogs are used to help officers search for drugs, bombs, or to help keep people away from officers so they don't get hurt.  The students also got to see the SWAT van.

Thanks to the officers and Havoc, the K-9 dog, for coming to Santaquin Elementary.
