Taylor Families, We have had a wonderful start to this school year. Thank you so much for following the safety rules we have discussed in previous emails. The flow of the traffic has been so much better this year. With the start of Kindergarten on Tuesday, I am sure things will pick up. However PLEASE remember to not park in the drop off area or behind parked cars. Also PLEASE remember to pull completely through the drop off area leaving LITTLE space between you and the car a head of you. I know everyone wants to drop off right at the door but this is impossible.
Kindergarten Open House will be Monday, August 27, 2018 1:30 to 2:30. You will have the opportunity to meet the teacher , see the classrooms, as well as receive important information.
Kindergarten BOO HOO Brunch will be on Tuesday, August 28th. After you drop your kindergartner off at his or her door, you are welcome to come in the hallway right by the kindergarten classrooms and the gym for a treat and to purchase Taylor shirts.

Free and Reduced lunch forms can be found online. Visit www.nebo.edu/parents You will find Free and Reduced information on Nebo Website under Parent Section. You must apply each school year for benefits. Meal Benefit Applications are processed for benefit eligibility at the Nebo District Office site in Spanish Fork by an authorized Child Nutrition Representative beginning mid-July. I suggest you apply for this benefit if you think you will qualify or if you plan to send a home lunch each day with your child but qualify. Our Title I funding each year is based upon the percentage of Free and Reduced lunch qualifiers. The higher the percentage, the more funding we can receive to help enhance the resourcess and learning for our students.
Rocky Mountain ATV, in Payson, made a HUGE donation to Taylor School! Boxes and boxes of school supplies were delivered to Taylor this week full of items for our students to use in the upcoming school year! We love the support our community businesses give us because it makes it possible to not only make sure all of our students are fully supplied for school, but also to do extra things like give student of the month prizes, reading reward incentives, boosts in classroom supplies, surprise drawings, positive behavior rewards, and so much more! Thank you so much Rocky Mountain ATV for helping the students at Taylor and for being so supportive of our school!!!!!
