Hello Parents,

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our 1st Term Parent Teacher Conferences.  We look forward to having everyone come out and meet with teachers.  If you have forgotten your time you are welcome to go back into Sign Up Genius and see your time or call the office and we can give you your time.  The teachers will be on a very tight schedule.  Please respect that time.  If you need to visit longer with the teacher than the allotted time, please schedule another time that you and the teacher can meet to have a deeper conversation.  

The Book Fair will be going on during Conferences in the gym until 9:00.  Please go visit the Fair and see all the great books available at a good price.  Also you can send a pencil gram to your student which is a pencil with a note attached for just $1.00.  

Halloween is just around the corner.  We will be having our annual Halloween parade on Tuesday, October 31st at 1:15 pm.  We will be marching around the outside perimeter of the school as we have done in the years past.  Students are invited to wear their costume to school or put them on during lunch.  Please be aware this is a regular school day so costumes that are particularly bulky or fragile should not be sent to school.  We ask that students refrain from wearing mask, gory costumes/makeup, or bring weapons-even pretend ones!  Students may wear hair color and light face paint to school but should NOT bring these items with them!  Please remember that even during these activities, students need to follow our school dress guidelines!

Thank you so much for your support!

Mrs. Robbins

Taylor's fourth grade classes have been learning about Native American tribes in Utah.  These student recently had the opportunity to have a special visitor at their school, Eileen Quintana of Title VII Indian Education for Nebo School District.  Eileen brought with her many items that are unique to the Navajo culture. Students were able to see infant cradle boards, jingle dresses, blankets, a bow, dolls, dresses, teepee models , head dresses, articles of clothing and dream catcher baskets. Eileen also brought pictures of hogans and sheep farms from the Navajo resevations. Thank you Eileen for giving our students the chance to learn about the Navajo culture here in Utah.

Students would bring their tray back up to the lunch ladies to redeem their price. The district donated a grand prize which was a bike. Today all students’ names were placed in a bucket for a drawing and Hunter Ramirez, in Ms. Leavitt’s 2nd grade class, was our lucky winner!

Superintendent Nielsen Visits Taylor!

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 10/04/2017 - 17:41

Students at Taylor were delighted to have Superintendent Rick Nielsen visit the school! Mr. Nielsen visted each of the classrooms in the building and spent time talking to students and teachers about their day!  Students were able to share with Mr. Nielsen what books they were reading, what stories they were typing and what their teacher was teaching in class.  This is always a neat time for Taylor Tigers to know that they are important and cared about, by everyone in Nebo School District.  

Thank you for spending your day as part of our Taylor family!
