Taylor Elementary Believes

Taylor Elementary is known for being involved in helping others in need, specifically with the Make-a-Wish program.  Janna Manookin has a special drive to raise awareness in the school about the benefits of this special cause.  One of the many ways Taylor does this is by participating in Macy's department store's 'Believe' program during Christmas time.  Taylor Elementary partnered with Payson High School's Latinos in Action group and wrote over 3,000 letters to Santa as well as telling why it is important to believe in the season.  The letters were turned in to Macy's store manager on "double day" where each letter is worth $2 to the Make-a-Wish program totalling $6,226 worth of donation to the foundation.   Way to go Taylor Tigers for spreading your Christmas spirit to those in need! 

Taylor Elementary Visited by Clark Planetarium

Taylor's students were recently delighted with a visit from Clark Planetarium.  Students were excited to watch experiments involving magnetism, electricity, air pressure, and atoms. The planetarium challenged students minds and made them rely on the scientific process to predict what was going to happen next.   Students were invited to participate in these science activities and were amazed at the final experiment which involved a large fire explosion from a balloon.  A favorite was being able to hold an actual meteorite!  Thank you Clark Planetarium for brining your science world to Taylor!

Taylor fourth-graders Visit Symphony

Fourth-grade students at Taylor Elementary in Mrs. Courtney Corbin and Ms. Brittney Wayman's classes had a great reason to dress in their very best...The Utah Symphony perfomance at Salem Hills High School.  This performance is always an exciting time of year for fourth-graders because they love to see and hear the different instruments the symphony uses in music.  Several of the selections played were familiar to students so it was neat to experience them being performed live.  Many thanks go to the Utah Symphony and those at the district level that help organize this event each for Nebo's fourth-graders.  What a memorable time of year!
