Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 05/21/2014 - 10:35

Taylor’s third grade students recently attended Thanksgiving Point’s ‘Tulip Festival’. Early in the spring, Taylor students partnered with Journey’s North, who generously donated tulips in order for students to study and observe them grow at the school.   Students in third grade study living things, the sun, seasons. In celebration of this, students in Mrs. Charles, Mrs. Ellsworth and Mrs. Provstgaard’s classes attended the ‘Tulip Festival” on Earth Day.  Third grade students from across the state were in attendance and were able to tour the gardens and participate in a scavenger hunt with science clues.   This was a fun way to celebrate the students’ new knowledge of living things and how they grow.

Taylor students work hard each day in all areas of academics.  One area that students have also work hard in is called "Prevention Dimension".  Each month, Taylor's school counselor, Mrs. Burningham, visits classrooms with lessons designed to help students with citizenship, healthy choices, friendships, stress reduction, drug/alcohol prevention as well as many other things.  Teachers at Taylor also play a critical role in instructing students in positive behavior choices within the classroom.  To celebrate this, fifth and sixth grade classes from Taylor attended a Salt Lake Bees game along with other students from across the state for “Kids Day”.  This was an exciting day for teachers, parents and especially the students to have a chance to celebrate making positive choices in their lives.

One of Taylor Elementary’s favorite Title-1 Technicians is retiring after 27 years in Nebo School District.    Mrs. Cheryl Brown began her lifetime career at Peteetneet Elementary in 1986.   From there she has worked with students at Park View Elementary, Santaquin Elementary (twice), Park Elementary, and finally at Taylor Elementary.    Mrs. Brown has tutored students in every elementary grade level in reading and math over her 27 years in education.  She possesses such skills and knowledge in math and reading that students leave her lessons a better student with a deeper understanding of concepts.    

 Taylor Principal, Frank Daybell, says of Cheryl, “Cheryl is a true professional. Watching her work with students over the years and the see the high level of expectations she has for each child has been an absolute pleasure.  Taylor’s faculty and students have been truly lucky to have someone like Cheryl call Taylor Elementary home.”

“My favorite saying is, ‘Do a little better than your best’.  I have enjoyed being in the classroom or helping students one-on-one with reading and math.  I am so grateful for this experience where I learned something new everyday and hopefully helped the students enjoy learning as much as I did.  Thanks to all the principals, teachers and friends I have worked with.  I have truly enjoyed my 27 years with Nebo School District.” 

Congratulations to Mrs. Cheryl Brown on her retirement from Nebo School District!.

Fourth Grade Visits Camp Floyd

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Fri, 05/16/2014 - 11:09

Taylor fourth grade students in Mrs. Corbin, Mrs. Grill and Ms. Orme's classes recently visited historic Camp Floyd.  Students took a step back in time and were able to experience life in the famous Utah military camp.  Students spent the day making adobe bricks, dipping candles, attending pioneer school, riding in the pony express as well as going through artillery training.  This is a fun way for students to see a piece of Utah history come alive!  Everyone on site was dressed in character and students learned a lot from the stories told by them about the history of the military camp.  Fourth-grade student, Jesse Daley, said, "My favorite part was making candles because it was cool to make them from hot wax. It took a long time to get them to be big."   Many thanks go to the many parent volunteers that make this field trip possible for the fourth-grade classes!
