Taylor Elementary's students in Mrs. Beck, Mrs. Grill and Mrs. Muhelstein's fourth-grade classes were recently visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition. Students were educated by Ms. Jenny Devlin on the importance of stormwater and how not to pollute it. Students were also taught the steps of the water cycle and how it impacts each other's daily lives. Fourth-grade student, Addison Corbin, says, "It is important not to litter or put paint and garbage in the gutters because we need to use the water that goes in there." This is always a great time of year for students to be visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition!
Look at the fantastic work the art students at Tayor have been creating! If you walk down the hallway near Mrs. Patten's art room, you'll feel as though you've stepped into a true pirate's treasure trove! There is a pirate ship, pirate's chests, seashells, seaweed and more! Watch out for the pirate skeleton's watching as you make your way in.....
Taylor's "Pirate Pride" assembly was a huge success! Mrs. Robbins presented the "Crew of the Month", the
"Captains of the Month" and the "Pirates of the Month"! These individuals always go the extra mile, work hard, step up when needed and have a great attitude! Congratulations to these winners!

Mrs. Oakeson's class created a class constitution to celebrate Constitution Day at Taylor! Students all wrote down ideas that they felt were important to include for their class rules. When this was completed, first-graders wrote it out and recited it together to remind them of the great things they've put into place! Nice job first-grade students for remembering what's important!
Taylor Elementary had a great Constitution Day! The morning began with the sixth-grade student council reading facts about the constitution over the announcements. Right after, Mrs. Robbins played a song for the school that explained what the constitution was about. In classrooms, students celebrated by wearing red, white and blue, singing patriotic songs and reading about the history of this day.
Mrs. Oakeson's class was especially excited because their class had 100% of their students who wore red, white and blue! To celebrate their patriotism, Mrs. Robbins read picture books about the pledge and the settling of America, all while enjoying freshly popped popcorn!
Thank you Taylor students for showing your love for America!
This Thursday is the 228th anniversary of the signing of the constitution. As a school, we will be honoring one of the country's most important documents. Please help Taylor Elementary celebrate by wearing our nation's colors... red, white and blue!!
Classes that have the highest percentage of red, white and blue colors will be invited to listen to patriotic stories read by Mrs. Robbins while eating popcorn!
Let's help show our American pride at Taylor!!!!
