Hello Taylor families,

A million thank  yous to our PTA for spoiling us this week.  We greatly appreciate all the yummy food and VIP treatment!  We have the best PTA around!!!

Kindergarten PRE-Registration:  If you were not able to make it to our Pre-Registration, please come and get pre-registered for Kindergarten.   This will help us know our numbers for next year.  Please help spread the word if you know of families with a child coming to Kindergarten next year!   

End of Year Assessment:  A reminder that we have begun end of year assessments.. Teachers will be testing over the course of several weeks.  Your child will not be testing every day, however, it is imperative that he/she is at school, reviewing and/or testing.  If your child is going to be absent during this testing period, please notify your child’s teacher so he/she can make arrangements for alternate days of testing.  First and Second grades will be testing through May 11th, and the Kindergarten Assessment will be May 21-25.  

Busy time of year:  Be sure to check your teachers emails as well as the school website for information concerning grade level events in April & May. It is a busy time of year and we will do our best to communicate information out to you effectively.

Read with your Heroes Night!:  We have a VERY Fun event coming up really soon.  On May 7th, we are going to have our final Read with the Hero.  However this one will be quite a bit different from the others we have had this year.  We will be having it AT NIGHT.    Please see flyer attached.  Hard copy will be coming home soon!
