Mrs. Burningham Helps Taylor Students "Be Part of the Puzzle"

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Thu, 08/30/2012 - 12:08

Mrs. Burningham, Taylor's Elementary's amazing counselor, has been visiting each of the classes around the school.  Mrs. Burningham read the story, 'The Crayon Box Talked' by Shane DeRolf, to the students and discussed how each color in the crayon box is just as important as the others.   She encouraged students to involve one another in class, during lunch and on the playground as often as they can to make each Taylor Tiger "Be Part of the Puzzle".   Students were able to draw on a puzzle piece showing their interests and talents for Mrs. Burningham to hang up for the school to see.   Thank you Mrs. Burningham for setting a good example for Taylor Tigers so early in the year!

Taylor Elementary students have been doing a lot of reading each night.  With all the reading done for Ken Garff Road to Success program, student’s names were placed in a drawing during a school wide assembly.  If their name was drawn out, they had a chance to pick a prize or take the challenge of “Shooting for Bucks”. If a basket was made, Mr. Adams, Taylor’s favorite school counselor, handed over cash! Several students had read so much, their names were pulled multiple times and they ended up with a lot of money and prizes!   This is a favorite assembly for students and it always encourages students to exceed their reading goals each month! Two lucky Taylor tigers even won a Kindle and a bike….just for reading!  Congratulations to Cedar Wilde and Sadie Gentry and remember…it STILL pays to read!!

The fifth grade students in Mrs. Harward, Mrs. Provstgaard and Mr. Richin's classes recently had a chance to showcase their talents during the annual Fifth Grade Talent Show.  This was an exciting morning for students because they were able to share with each other and parents some of the talents and hobbies that aren't seen every day in class.  Some of the talents shared were personal collections, dancing, piano, singing, guitar,  and even a pie eating contest!   Taylor School has such a talented bunch of fifth grade students this year!  Way to go students!

Taylor's fifth-graders in Ms. Harward, Mrs. Provstgaard and Mr. Richin's classes have been working hard this year studying different states in our country.  As part of this, the students chose a famous person that is tied to their assigned state and portrayed that person in a "Wax Museum".  This time of year is a favorite for the school because the fifth gradeers put so much time and effort researching and making their costumes a perfect representation of the person.  Some of the famous "wax" characters seen were The Statue of Liberty, Harriet Tubman, Annie Oakley and Benjamin Franklin.  Parents and Taylor students were invited to attend the "Wax Museum" and see all of the great indviduals that are part of our country. Nice job fifth-grade students!

It gets them really excited for sixth-grade" . Congratulations to this year's graduates of NOVA at Taylor Elementary!
