Mr. Adams, the school counselor, has been visiting classrooms at Taylor School teaching and practicing different skills.  One of the things Mr. Adams has taught is how to fill each other's buckets. Mr. Adams read the story, "Have you Filled a Bucket Today" by Carol McCloud to students.  This book shows the benefits of kindness through the metaphor of a bucket.  Being kind to one another "fills" our buckets. Students have been challenged to write bucket filling notes to one another telling each other sincere things.

Taylor Tigers were delighted with a great back-to-school present from Costco....a brand new backpack! The backpacks were loaded with folders, rulers, scissors and a pencil pouch to help students get started with school.  When the students recieved their new backpack, they were excited to show them off for one another and put their new school supplies to use.  Many thanks go to Costco for donating a backpack for every student ensuring a great start at Taylor Elementary.  Way to go Costco!

Taylor Elementary School's amazing art teacher, Mrs. Patten, is always coming up with exciting and enjoyable art activites for each of the different grades to do.  One week, the 6th grade classes were able to make "Splatter Art" using colorful paint, large syringes and a lot of protective plastic!

Large poster paper was laid on the ground and students would squirt the different paint colors from the syringes onto the paper making scattered, colorful streaks.  The end result was a colorful display of artistic creativity! Nice job 6th grade!
