Clark Planetarium Brings Science to Life at Taylor

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Tue, 11/24/2015 - 09:56

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 variety of things they learned! . A favorite was being able to hold an actual meteorite! Thank you Clark Planetarium for brining your science world to Taylor!

2nd Grade Stone Soup

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 11/23/2015 - 14:42

Second-graders at Taylor Elementary in Ms. Leavitt, Mrs. Fullmer, and Mrs. Groneman's classes enjoyed an authentic Thanksgiving feast in their classroom. The second grade teachers read the book, 'Stone Soup', to their classes and then delighted them by actually cooking a pot of stone soup. Students each brought in ingredients to contribute to the soup and then dressed in Pilgrim and Indian costumes to create the 'First Thanksgiving' and shared a meal together. This event is certainly something that students remember throughout their time at Taylor. Thank you second-grade teachers and parent helpers for creating a memorable experience for our school!

Taylor Students are Internet Smart

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 11/23/2015 - 14:36

Taylor students learn about and use computers on a daily basis to better their education. Now students are even smarter with computers because they know how to stay safe on the internet. A "Net Smart" assembly was held to teach the classes the best ways to stay safe when "surfing the net". Remembering how to keep personal information private, knowing which sites are safe, and letting parents know what is being viewed are all ways Taylor tigers choose to stay away from internet predators.

Fifth grade teacher, Mr. Rory Hansen, says, "The internet is something the world depends on every day and kids are using computers at younger ages. It is essential to keep them aware of the dangers and focus on the advantages that can come from using the internet properly".
