Night of Heroes:  October 9, 2017 5:30 to 7:30.  We have LOTS of fun Heroes (local and super) coming to visit us, food trucks, silent auction, face paint, fun activities and lots, lots more.  This is the last week to turn in new items for the theme baskets.  If you do not know your class theme, please ask the teachers.  

Pick up and Drop Off: We have had some problems with parents parking in the pick up/drop off area. We remind you again to please not park in this area before or after school, including during preschool and kindergarten start and end times. If you need to get out of your car for any reason we kindly ask you to park in a marked parking stall and come in to the school. If there is an empty space in front of you while you are waiting to pick up or drop off your students we also ask that you continue to pull forward, filling the void in space. Please note that the pick up/drop off lane is a single deep lane. The other portion of this lane is for a pull-through only. Do not stop or park in the pull through lane. In keeping to this procedure will help keep the flow of traffic moving along so we do not back up into the street more than necessary. Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe in this particular area before and after school.

School Tshirts:  This is the last chance to order Taylor Hero Tshirts.  If you are having a hard time doing this online, please come into the school and we will help.  http://www.colorpointpromo.com/taylor/

School Registration Donations: We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the parents who generously paid your students registration donation this year.  As you may or may not know, these donations are used to fund field trips and activities that go above and beyond the regular classroom experiences. If you did not have a chance to pay a donation please know that you can do this at any time. We have asked for a $20 per student donation if you choose to participate. Again, thank you to those families who have supported the efforts of Taylor Elementary in this matter.

"Taylor Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Taylor will be working with Dance Integration this school year.   5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students created dancing EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS to share a message about Ancient Egypt.  
 3rd-4th grade will be visiting with the Dance Specialist in a couple of weeks as well.  Wait until then to hear more!

Fifth and First Grade Math Buddies

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!!!!

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
