Second grade students are finding it is easy to bring a little bit of gardening indoors! These students planted bean seeds to grow in mini window greenhouses as well as seeds in soil cups. These scientist will then be observing and charting their growth and then disecting the seeds as they sprout! This is a great way to study the parts of a seed, use graphing skills and use the scientific method as they watch their classroom greenhouse come alive!
Our sixth grade students are spending their final weeks in the halls of Taylor School. They working very hard to prepare for the rigor of Jr. High school. One of the ways is by perfecting their argumentative essay writing skills. Students in Mrs. Lewis' class are busily 'defending their claims', 'making counter arguments' and adding in a lot of their own style into their writing! We're so impressed with all that these 6th grade students are capable of and we're excited to see what they still have in store for us for the remainder of their time at Taylor!
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Sumen's classes have been enjoying a lot of donations thanks to the website Donors Choose. Their latest classroom addition is a set of new tablets for students to use in their classroom! These tablets have durable cases on them perfect for little hands and will offer these tiny learners a variety of opportunities for learning! Taylor school is very thankful for the generous donations that are made to classrooms, like Mrs. Sumens, each and every day! We're excited to see what these kids can do!!! We love Donors Choose!
One of the goals for many Taylor students is to have nice handwriting. These third grade students look forward to school because they finally get to learn cursive! It is so fun to see how their handwriting evolves from simple print to a beautiful cursive script in just a short amount of time! Plus....their little fingers get a little stronger in the process! Nice job third graders for perfecting your handwriting!
Your student may come home from school saying their class had a substitute that day. Can you believe it is because Taylor's teachers are already planning for next year!! Mrs. Robbins knows how important it is for teachers to collaborate, prepare and align lessons with Utah's core standards. She has given the opportunity for all teachers at Taylor to spend an extended amount of time to do just that! First grade teachers, Mrs. Oakeson, Mrs. Mayhew and Ms. Clove spent the day tweaking, adding, changing, bettering and solidifying their lesson plans to deepen understanding for students and give them the best instruction possible! All grade levels will have the opportunity to do this with their curriculum to give your students the best educational experience at Taylor!
Come walk the halls of Taylor and see all the pennant flags with each student's picture and graduating class year posted outside their classrooms! Our 6th graders are the future class of 2022 all the way down our kindergarten class of 2028!

College colors day was a success!!!! Even though there were a few rivalries represented, it was safe to say that there are a lot of our students who already know which school they're heading for in the future!

Taylor's pirates of the month, crews of the month and captains of the month were announced today!
Mrs. Oakeson, Ms. Whicker and Mrs. Grills class each earned crew of the month for accomplishing their class goals! Ms. Clove and Mrs. Lewis' classes won for the fewest tickets, Mrs. Muhlestein and Mrs. Sumens am classes won for the quietest in the halls. Next month our school will be working on the fewest tardies, school-wide clean-up and memorizing what ROAR stands for!
Congratulations to these students and classes for all of their hard work!
Please make sure to register your kindergarten student for the 2016-17 school year! Even if you don't have all the paperwork required, you can still come to the school and get them signed up! This is very helpful for our office staff to predict the amount of students that will be attending kindergarten in the fall. Stop by the office any time and we would love to get you started! We look forward to seeing you!
