CONGRATULATIONS to DAISY RODRIGUEZ on receiving the Payson City Mayor's award. Here are some of the wonderful things here teachers have to say about her:

Daisy Rodriguez is a kind and caring person. Daisy has spent time helping students improve their English and has done it with such respect towards her peers. As I observed her help a student in my class, Daisy doesn't come across knowing everything, she comes across with a genuine attitude of simply wanting to help. When she doesn't know how to help a student, Daisy always finds how she can do a better job. Daisy never assumes to know the answer to everything, but she will always let the students know, "I don't know, but I can find out for you."

Daisy has a wonderful attitude in class and she is able to transmit her positive energy to everyone around her. Daisy is such a respectful young lady and is deserving of this great award. As part of Latinos in Action this year, I know Daisy will do an outstanding job with the elementary school aged kids. I'm extremely glad she has chosen to give back to her community by joining LIA. Sharing your talent with the next generation is going to be very rewarding. Congratulations Daisy!

There's a new principal here at Payson High, students shared how they feel about her being the new principal.  One of the students said, "We love her, she's very opened minded, and willing to help anyone that needs help.” We also asked teachers at Payson High. They all had really good feedback about Mrs. Shepherd, they’re all very excited to see how the school year goes, they hope she brings positivity to the school. Also, they all feel so connected to Mrs. Shepherd, they love her ideas and how open she is. She cares so much about the school, teachers and students.

Fifth and First Grade Math Buddies

Taylor Elementary News - Tue, 09/12/2017 - 7:34pm

Fifth grade students are such a help to the first grade classes during Guided Math. While first grade teachers instruct, the fifth grade students help run math centers that reinforce learning. This is a fun opportunity for both grades to look forward to because it gives them a chance to practice math, make new friends, and learn from each other. This partnership is a long time tradition that has been happening at Taylor for more than 15 years! Upper grade students always remember when they were in first grade and the "big kids" helped them. What a great way to continue the community at Taylor Elementary! Many tiger, one roar!!!!

Principal's Newsletter

Taylor Elementary News - Tue, 09/12/2017 - 7:17pm

Hello Parents,

I really appreciate so much all the support we have seen as we are working hard to keep our students safe.  I appreciate everyone moving forward in the student drop off area and not getting out of the cars and parking in this area.  We are continuing to look at how we can ensure the safety of our students.

With yesterday being September 11th, your student had the wonderful opportunity to participate with the school in a flag ceremony, singing of the national anthem, and the pledge. As this commenced, we as a school administration asked the teachers to focus on the heroes that came immediately after the days events sixteen years ago. Good people around the world showed their kindness and love for each other by reaching out and helping save the lives of those hurt by this event.   Instead of focusing on the the tragic events of 9/11, we wanted in emphasis the patriotism, kindness and heroism that was brought about because of that day.  It was such a wonderful experience standing in the circle as our students sang the National Anthem and said the pledge.  I couldn't help but fight back the tears.  I love your students and the happiness they bring to our school.  

We are so excited about our upcoming Hero Night.  Attached you will see a newsletter from our PTA.  This newsletter letter contains details about that night as well as other good information.  I great appreciate all the hard work our PTA has done this year to help get our school up and running.  I encourage anyone who would like to get involved to please come out and join this wonderful group.  Great things are happening.

VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER that on MONDAY, September 18th we have an EARLY OUT!  School will let out at 12:00 PM. Lunch will be served at at 10:40.   Because we have early out and Kindergarten will be participate in an all day field trip later this year, there will be NO KINDERGARTEN on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th.  

As we are getting our School Community Council up and running.  This year we had two parents that volunteered to run as SCC candidates.  Because we need two parents to fill the vacant slots, I am happy to announce that Mrs. Cathy Nelson and Mrs. Elizabeth Rios are on our 2017-2018 SCC.  Thank you so much for volunteered to be part of this Council!

As always, follow us on Facebook and Instagram and don't forget to check our website.Thank you so much for all your support!  Please open the attachment for great information on upcoming events!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Robbins
