Reading Buddies at Taylor, a Longtime Tradition!

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Sun, 09/13/2015 - 12:19

Fourth and fifth graders at Taylor Elementary have been working hard on remembering what their E.A.R.S. are for...reading out loud! Reading with Expression, Accuracy, Rate and Smoothness are things that a good reader does when they're reading aloud. Each Friday, Mrs. Corbin, Ms. Whicker, Mrs. Beck and Mrs. Muhelstein's classes have the chance to show off their skills by reading to the four first grade classes. This is a fun opportunity for both grades to look forward to because it gives them a chance to practice reading, make new friends, and learn from each other. This is a long time tradition that has been happening at Taylor for more than 10 years! Upper grade students always remember when they were in first grade and the "big kids" read to them. What a great way to continue the community at Taylor Elementary! Many ROAR!

Taylor School Remembers September 11, 2001

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Fri, 09/11/2015 - 09:45

Taylor School had the privilege of participating in a patriotic flag ceremony this morning. In honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, the flag at Taylor School was lowered halfway by Army veteran, Marshall Ludwig, who served honorably in the Viet Nam War. This was an emotional experience for many who were there.
As Taylor tigers, we Reach our potential, Own up, Accept everyone and Remember who we represent. Today was a great day to be a tiger, and remember all those who have bravely sacrificed their lives for our freedoms!
