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. This will give you an opportunity to meet with the teachers to see what activities they would like for you to help with this school year. If you have not had the opportunity to sign up to help PTA. You are welcome to do so.  SAVE THE DATE: Night of Champions, Sept. 17th 5:30 to 8:30: WE ARE SO EXCITED about our Night of Champions this year. It will be very similar to last year's Night of Heroes with great food trucks, many Champions, Taylor Shirt sales, Title One Booth, Auction, Helicopter landing and taking off and some Knights in Shining Armor!! We look forward to a great night. We will be doing a Pre-Sale of tickets on Sept 11th - 13th; 3:15 to 4:15 right in front of the school. Get your tickets early for a better price! Teachers should be sending out a reminder of the Theme for your Grade Level Basket for the Auction.

5th Grade Patriotic Program

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Tue, 05/22/2018 - 16:32

Students in fifth grade shared their end-of-year program for parents and the school. The program focused on the History of America, the 50 states, as well as a tribute to the armed forces! This is always a fun program for students to share because it gives a small taste of some of the things they have been learning about in class this year.
