Principal's Newsletter

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

Meet 2nd Grade Teacher, Ms. Barlow!!

Hello Tigers! I am ecstatic to join this wonderful school and community. My original stomping grounds are Kaysville, Utah, but after going to Brigham Young University and becoming acquainted with the Nebo District I fell in love with the area, the wonderful people and decided to stick around. This past April I graduated from BYU in Elementary Education. My last semester was spent on a study abroad in Jerusalem. Back when I was in the second grade I wrote on an "All About Me" sheet that I wanted to be a teacher - now I am fulfilling that dream by teaching in the second grade! Some of my passions include reading, singing, traveling, exploring nature, laughing, and eating lots and lots of ice cream. I love teaching, but the best part is working with the inspiring, creative little people who fill the classroom.

My name is Rob Daggett. I'm looking forward to teaching 6th grade at Taylor Elementary this year. I have been teaching for 10 years. However, I have never taught sixth grade. All of my experience is with junior high and high school. So this will be a new and exciting experience for me. My family and I have just moved to Utah from blazing hot Phoenix, Arizona. Just can't get enough of the beautiful weather up here in Utah. I'm the proud parent of three pretty cool kids, 2 girls (Jalynn 19, Katelyn 10) and a boy (Beau 16). I have a beautiful wife. Her name is Jennifer. I love all types of sports. My favorite is basketball. Just can't get enough of it. I can't wait for the school year to get started and enjoy teaching and learning together!

My wife, Michelle, and I have six children and one grandchild.  We are moving here from Texas to be closer to extended family. I was a former Air Force officer.  I have been a public school teacher for 10 years. I taught a combined Kindergarten and first grade class for seven years. I taught fifth grade math for three years. I'm looking forward to teaching fifth grade again! I have a master's degree in education from the University of Texas. I do a lot of outdoor activities with my children, so I really love the mountains and the amount of public land in Utah. I dearly miss Texas, but I'm excited for new opportunities and new friends here. Let's have a fun and challenging year at Taylor Elementary! Todd Hepworth

Online Registration Clarification

Mon, 07/17/2017 - 10:09am
Attributions: 

Hello Taylor Families!

Thank you with your patience as we work through this new process of online registration.  

After you click to the Aspire Student Information System, it asks you to choose either new student registration or current student registration.  If your student has attended Taylor Elementary in the past, or is currently attending, choose CURRENT Student Registration even if you haven't set up an Aspire account (kindergarten students that registered in the Spring, are also considered current students and need to complete this online registration process as well).

At this point if you need to set up an Aspire account choose, "Request a Username." It will then ask for Student ID # (your students know this number as their lunch number). Enter the student ID # and birth date and complete the process. 

If your student is a current student at Taylor and you already registered them under New Student Registration, I will need you to please go in and complete the registration process as a current student. I am sorry for this inconvenience; this is a state run program and they are working to make it more clear and hope to have it fixed by early next week. 

If you don't know your Student ID #'s, please fill free to call the school or email  Gloria at gloria.young@nebo.edu. She will be glad to give them to you as quickly as possible.

Be sure to return to the main page and complete all the required steps in registration. Also,  please consider making your donations as well. That money is used for activities and field trips for your students that otherwise will not be possible

Again we are thankful for your patience as we work through the process of our new online registration program.  

We hope you have a wonderful Summer Break!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Robbins
