Our school brought in an amazing $1500 during our ‘Penny Wars’ contest this year. This money will go directly to help our Taylor families in need.  We are so grateful and very blessed by the donations that have come to our school recently and are humbled by the endless support given to our school!  We can’t do this without you!  And grade level did “win” the war.  THIRD GRADE....get ready for your pizza party in January! #beenheresince1866 #manytigersoneroar #taylortraditions #pennywars #taylormeansfamily
