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

The recipient of the Mayor Award for May is 9th grade PJHS student Darwin Fackrell. Darwin was selected for this award because he works hard and is willing to help others around him. He is motivated and responsibile, and is a lot of fun to be around. Here's what some of Darwin's teachers have to say about him:

Darwin is a hard working student, and always willing to help those around him when they need his help. He has progressed a long way since entering my class two years ago, and is doing a great job. His hard work has really helped him move ahead in his math understanding. He has every right to be proud of his accomplishments in my class over the past two years. I am glad his efforts are being recognized in this way. He is very deserving. – Mr. Smith

Darwin has worked hard over the last few months to stay on top of his work. He is a motivated self-learner who is good about asking questions/help when needed. He interacts well with is peers and takes pride in doing his best.  – Mrs. Gillie

 

Darwin came to our school last year as an 8th grader and jumped right in.  He always has a great attitude, works hard and is always prepared.  Darwin also has great peer relations because he's fun to be around and will be missed next year at PJHS. – Mr. Archer

Congratulations, Darwin! Thank you for being a true Grizzly Hero!
