Surprise Postcard from Taylor's Favorite Veteran

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Thu, 05/18/2017 - 10:56

For years, Taylor School has been spoiled by Viet Nam Veteran, Marshall Ludwig.  Mr. Ludwig has honored Taylor School by leading us in multiple patriotic events such as Veteran's Day flag raisings, September 11th memorials, and celebrations of Constitution Day.  He has proudly worn his military dress while attending multiple school functions including our school's 150th Birthday celebration this year.  

Mr. Ludwig recently moved to New Mexico and surprised our school by sending a heartfelt note sharing his affection for the students, staff and faculty of Taylor School.  He was especially impressed by Mr. Rich Lowe and the friendship they shared.   

Mr. Marshall Ludwig, we will miss you and we wish you the best in your new adventures in the "land of enchantment"!   


6th Grade Graduation "Adventure is Out There"

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Thu, 05/18/2017 - 09:39

Another year has come and gone for students at Taylor Elementary, but this year is a little different for one particular group.  Our sixth grade students have completed their final year at Taylor School and celebrated with a graduation ceremony entitled "Adventure is Out There".  

After receiving valuable advice from Principal Robbins about making the choice to work hard, and commit to excellence, students showcased their talents by singing two songs as well as having the 6th grade orchestra play.  Several students shared memories of their time at Taylor including, falling on a glue stick, getting fingers caught in a Chinese finger trap, being asked to marry a fellow kindergartener, and even not paying attention in 1st grade and getting called out on it.  DIplomas were presented by Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Bufton and Mrs. Charles. 

Congratulations to our sixth grade students for a job well done at Taylor!!!! Wherever you attend school in the future, always remember to SHOW YOUR ROAR!!!!

Principal's Newsletter

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 05/15/2017 - 14:04

Dear Parents,

As this year comes to a close, I want to thank you for your support and generosity.   I am so thankful for the many hours you spend volunteering in the classrooms and attending our school events.  It is clear you are invested in your child's education.
I know some of you are already thinking about next year and wondering what teacher your child will have.  I have already received a few requests for teachers so I wanted to explain where I stand with teacher assignments and requests. My official stance, as in years past, is that I do not take teacher requests. I hope this letter helps you understand why I choose this stance.  The goal of the school is to provide each child with the best educational experience possible. We recognize the importance of providing high quality instruction in a safe and nurturing environment.

The teachers have been working hard to create balanced classes with their current students for next year. They take into account such things as personalities, academics, behaviors, and special needs.  This is a very intensive process that pays dividends in the end. The teachers know your children so well in this environment and work hard to place them with a group of students that best fits their needs. Our experience is that balanced classes make for a better experience for the students and the teachers. I will take on the responsibility of assigning teachers to those classes and making any adjustments based on the needs of specific students.

I recognize there are a few students who have very specific needs that need to be addressed. If you feel your child is one of these, you will need to come in and meet with me to discuss these needs.  I will make sure your child’s future teacher is able to meet his or her needs and provide high quality instruction.  If this is the case, will you please call and make an appointment to meet with me in the next two weeks.

As a friendly reminder these last ten days of school, please help your students dress appropriately for the weather. Some mornings are chilly and require a jacket .   PLEASE make sure the jackets come home.   If you have questions about what is and is not appropriate for your students to wear to school, Nebo dress code standards can be found at the following website:  I know there is a SUPER CUTE new style of having a shirt with shoulders cut out.  Unfortunately shoulders need to be completely covered.  If your child wears this shirt, she will need to wear a tshirt underneath.


We have lots of fun events happening now until the end of the school year. Please keep checking the School Calendar and Teacher's Newsletters.   If you are willing to volunteer for the Olympic Day.  Please give me a call at the school.  I appreciate all you do for your children!

Thanks,Mrs. Robbins
