Principal's April Newsletter

Hello Taylor Tigers,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break!  I hope it was one filled with lots of fun memories with your family and friends.  I enjoyed a couple of days watching some baseball and a little R&R.  Now that we are back in the swing of things and we are on the homestretch, I wanted to send out a few reminders.

~DRESS CODE:  Don't forget the dress code when buying summer attire.  Remember that the shoulder must be COMPLETELY covered.  We also need shirts to cover the back and midriff. 

~Flip Flops:  I LOVE to wear flip flops.  However, flip flops are not always kid friendly on the playground.  It is very frustrating to our students when their flip flops break as they are out running and playing.  This could actually case a kid to get hurt.  If your child wears flip flops to school, would you please send another pair of shoes with them in case this happens.  We have become pretty good shoe repairmen but with flip flop repairs don't last long!

~LOST AND FOUND:  We have so many items in lost and found and we keep adding to them daily.  PLEASE come by and check out the tables by the lunchroom to see if your child's coats are there.  There are some really nice things in lost and found and I really want them to find their right owner!  Also if you child wears a jacket to school, make sure they bring it home each day.  The weather is really crazy right now and kids are wearing the jackets to school and getting hot during recess and leaving them outside. 

~Assessment:  End of year assessment is upon us.  Please check with individual teachers to see what days they will be giving their assessments to ensure your student is present on those days.  It is also been proven that if a child has a good nights rest the night before as well as a good breakfast, they are able to focus better on the assessments. Thank you for your support!

~There are MANY important activities that are coming up.  I hope you are following us on Facebook and Instagram so you can see all the fun photos that will be posted.  Please continue to look at our school calendar on our website for updates as well as Teacher Newsletters.   Please feel free to call the school if you have any questions.Thanks,

Mrs. Robbins

Parents of Mrs. Beck's Class,  I just want to "Thank You" for sharing your kiddos with me the past couple of months. I appreciate all the sweet gestures that have been shared with me.

I am so impressed with the parent support  at Taylor Elementary.  We have enjoyed such delightful lunches that have been provided for us.  I personally have been given sweet gifts from Hi-chews, (my favorite candy) to many liters of Dt.

Gene Research Scientist, Mr. Bryan, Visits 5th Graders

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Tue, 03/28/2017 - 11:28

Mr. Bryan, from Sorenson Genomics, visited Taylor's 5th grade classes as they study heredity and genetics.  Mr. Bryan, who also has a 5th grader at Taylor,  works specifically with human DNA inherited from parents.  He explained to the classes his educational pathway in his science career which started right in an elementary classroom.  He graduated from UVU and is now a research scientist.

In the biotechnology field, students can earn a college degree, use problem solving skills, math, computers, and a lot of curiosity. Many scientists in his field use their gene knowledge in forensics, disease/disorder testing and family trees.    This was a very informative presentation to help introduce the posibilities in the field of genetics!

Hello Parents,

Can you believe Spring Break is just around the corner?  No school all next week.  Enjoy your time together as a family and hopefully you will see some sunshine.  

KINDERGARTEN PARENTS, Kindergarten field trip tomorrow to Thanksgiving Point Farm!  Notes came home today reminding you if your child is signed up for a home or school lunch.  ALL STUDENTS morning and afternoon need to arrive at 9:00 and will stay until the end of the day.  Please do not send backpacks!  Please dress you child for the weather it looks like it will be chilly and possibly windy or rainy.  We will be outside.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week!  I encourage your students to say a kind word or write a kind note to their teachers as a way to show their appreciation for all the work our teachers do. The PTO has some yummy lunches planned this week and we appreciate all the work that has been put into that!

End of year assessments are fast approaching and I encourage each of you to check with individual teachers on when those assessments will be given, so as to make sure your child is present on those dates. These assessments take a good amount of time each day, over a several day period. We encourage you to have your children here for their assessment dates so we do not have many make-up sessions to complete.

PTA Meeting will be here in our faculty room on April 11 at 1:00.  Everyone is invited to come!

Thank you so much for all your time and support you give to ensure the success of your students.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Robbins
