Good Morning Taylor Tigers!

* 7th Grade Registration is happening today! Our 6th graders will be leaving shortly after 9:00am to the Junior High for an orientation and registration. Please take time tonight and tomorrow to go over the registration packet with your students and return them to the 6th grade teachers by the end of the week.

*Check out our Flier that is attached! Our Family Literacy Night is this THURSDAY AT 6:00. We will have dinner, activities, every kid will get a book and the GREEN MAN BAND come to entertain us. If you have never seen the Green Man Band, you are in for a treat. Check out their commercial: Don't forget to wear your favorite college attire!

*Kindergarten Enrollment will be March 14th from 8:00am-4:00pm at Taylor Elementary. In order to enroll your student we will need a copy of birth certificate, immunizations and 2 proofs of current residency within school boundaries.
Please pass this information on to your neighbors and friends in our boundaries that may not otherwise get the information. This enrollment date is critical in helping determine how many classes of students we have next year as well as the busing situation.

*Don't forget to continue to collect your Boxtops and send them in anytime. Thank you PTA for all your support!

*If you are missing coats & hats you may be able to find them in our school lost and found. It is getting quite full and we invite you to come rummage through it to find what may be yours.

* Please note that next Monday, March 6th will be an early dismissal from school. All students will be excused at 12:00pm so staff members can participate in training.

* The Elementary State Chess Championship will be held at BYU this year. On Mar 18, young chess players from all over the state of Utah will join together to challenge each other. Several hundred players are expected, from nearly one hundred schools. Dozens will bring home trophies, after playing six games with others in their own grade. Registration is open to all K-6 students--no qualifying meet is required. To register, go to and click on Tournaments.

*MNJH is offering a FREE preschool for 2 days, March 8th and 10th 2:00-2:45. Please see flier for more information. Hey a trip to Walmart with no little ones:)

Steve James Delights Taylor School!

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 02/13/2017 - 12:24

Taylor Elementary's halls were recently filled with music coming form the entertaining Steve James' musical perfomance. Steve James is a singer/songwriter who wrote music specifically for the "Prevention Dimension" program wich teaches students to be drug and alcohol free by finding other alternaitves to enjoy. He is always a delight for Taylor school and the students love to sing along with songs they're familiar with while watching his amazing fun-filled performance.

Fifth grade teacher, Lyndsey Whicker says, "Prevention Dimension is a great program for our schools in Utah because it reinforces the importance of being healthy, staying drug free and making good choices every day at school and in the community. Taylor students are always looking for ways to make positive goals in their lives and this program helps them achieve this."

Thank you Steve James for taking the time to come to our school and reminding us how important it is to set goals to stay drug-free and remain healthy!
