Students in Mr. Hansen’s and Mr. Richin’s 5th grade classes have had the unique opportunity to participate in Nebo School Districts Art Integration Program. Holly Mayne has been working with students in the area of dance and creative movement. After students have used their body to ooze, melt and gather items for a potion, they take all of their descriptive words back to their classroom for a writing activity. Be sure and ask a 5th grader about this special activity they have been involved in.
Thank you to Brad and Chris Olson of Olson’s Garden Shoppe. They donated a pumpkin to each student in Mrs. Oakeson’s and Mrs. Ellsworth’s class. It was a special treat for Halle and Kyler Tischner to have Grandma and Grandpa share their talents of growing veggies with their class.
Dear Taylor Tigers,
I just want to take a second and say thank you to all of you for attending our fall carnival, book fair and SEP conferences, they were all huge successes. A special thank you to our PTA and faculty who put in countless hours making them successful.

Dear Parents and Students,
As part of our red ribbon week we will be having a scare away drugs day on Wednesday October 31st. Students are invited to dress up in costumes this day. We will hold a Halloween parade where parents are invited to gather around outside our school to see their child and their class in costumes. The parade will start at 12:45 and all classes will walk around the school so there is now bad place to sit and watch. Just a reminder that no full masks or weapons of any kind are allowed at school. We hope to see you all there and thanks for all of the support you give our wonderful school.

Getting to know….Mr. Hansen
What do you do at Taylor Elementary? I teach the best grade in the world . . .
Where are you from and where do you live now? I grew up in a tiny place in
Sanpete County called Mayfield. More people go to Taylor Elementary than
lived there. After I got married and finished school we moved back to Mayfield
for nearly 10 years. Now I live in Salem.
What hobbies do you have? My biggest hobby is my kids. When I’m not
watching them play soccer, basketball, softball, gymnastics, or anything else
I enjoy playing the guitar, playing basketball, writing, and putting puzzles
together with my wife, Cari.
Who do you respect the most? There isn’t a person I respect more than my dad.
He was my sixth grade teacher and is the reason I’m a teacher. You won’t find
someone more positive or willing to help.
Who has had the most influence in your life? After what I wrote above, it better
be my dad.
What has been your favorite vacation? A few months after my wife and I got
married, we went to the northern island of New Zealand. We whitewater rafted
down the world’s tallest raft-able waterfall (18 ft,) body boarded down 300 foot
high sand dunes, and immersed ourselves in the Moari culture.
What super-power would you most like to have, and why? By far, if I could have
any super power I would want to reverse time. Being able to relive my best
memories and greatest experiences would surpass any other power . . . except
for maybe conjuring cookies out of thin air.
If you could tell the students and parents of Taylor Elementary anything, what
would it be? I love working at Taylor! I don’t think there are greater students
anywhere. Thank you for letting me teach your children. I can’t think of a better
place to be or a better thing to be than a tiger.
Taylor Elementary Tigers are always working hard in school, being good friends and being respectful.
