College Month at Taylor is always a favorite time of year! Students to spend the month learning about all of the opportunities for education after high school. A few highlights from the month include: listening to a different university “fight song” each day, decorating classroom doors, dressing up as future careers, watching the 6th graders try to open locks in the obstacle course, and decorating jerseys to hang in the hallway! We can’t wait to see what paths in life all of our Taylor tigers choose!
Teacher appreciation week was amazing as usual! Teachers were spoiled with snack, lunches, massages, extra time for lunch, gift certificates, plants, balloons, sweet notes, and much more! We are so grateful for the support our PTA gives to our school! Thank you to the PTA presidency as well as those who helped make this week so enjoyable!
“I felt so spoiled this week between treats, massages, and and extra long lunch! Thank you for making me feel so special!”
“We have “hands down” the best parents and PTA around. We have been spoiled beyond measure this week. As we walk around the school there are cute uplifting posters, more treats than a bakery and the best lunches ever! Thank you so much for your efforts and kindness. This has been a great week and we are lucky to have such awesome people in our corner.”
“I have loved the luncheons and dessert bar. It's so nice not to have to pack a lunch to school! I also love the flowers and Girl Scout cookies one of my students gave me!”
”Best week of the year! We love our parents and students the support they give to us! We’re all in this together and we’re so grateful we have your support!”
“The posters in the hallway were so cute! The treats in the faculty room sure hit the spot each day! Lunch from Mrs. Robbins one day, and the PTA another?!?! Talk about spoiled! The massages were pretty fantastic as well. We especially loved the extra half an hour during our lunch break! I had a chance to just sit hang out with teachers from other grade levels! Thank you!!!!”

Mr. Jason 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!
Taylor Elementary's fourth-grade classes were recently visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition. Students were educated by Ms. Jenny Devlin on the importance of stormwater and how not to pollute it. Students were also taught the steps of the water cycle and how it impacts each other's daily lives. Fourth-grade student, Thatcher Sumens, says, "It is important not to litter or put paint and garbage in the gutters because we need to use the water that goes in there." This is always a great time of year for students to be visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition!
