Taylor students have been lucky this week because our amazing literacy specialist, Mrs. Wride, has been visiting each classroom sharing one of her favorite biographies!  Mrs. Wride encouraged students to look at the theme of the story as well as to expand their genre interests!  We’re lucky to have Mrs. Wride at Taylor full time, sharing her love of reading and writing!  She truly is one of our Taylor champions! #manytigersoneroar #beenheresince1866 #taylorchampion

Taylor Families, We have had a wonderful start to this school year. Thank you so much for following the safety rules we have discussed in previous emails. The flow of the traffic has been so much better this year. With the start of Kindergarten on Tuesday, I am sure things will pick up. However PLEASE remember to not park in the drop off area or behind parked cars. Also PLEASE remember to pull completely through the drop off area leaving LITTLE space between you and the car a head of you. I know everyone wants to drop off right at the door but this is impossible.  

Kindergarten Open House will be Monday, August 27, 2018 1:30 to 2:30. You will have the opportunity to meet the teacher , see the classrooms, as well as receive important information.

 
Kindergarten BOO HOO Brunch will be on Tuesday, August 28th. After you drop your kindergartner off at his or her door, you are welcome to come in the hallway right by the kindergarten classrooms and the gym for a treat and to purchase Taylor shirts. Room Parent Ice Cream Social will be Sept. 4th at 3:30 in Library for all room parents that have signed up and teachers.

You are welcome to do so. www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E094FA5A62CA6F49-sepdinners  SAVE THE DATE: Night of Champions, Sept. 17th 5:30 to 8:30: WE ARE SO EXCITED about our Night of Champions this year.
