I want to remind everyone that there is no school Wednesday, November 27th-Friday, November 29th for Thanksgiving break. 

Next Wednesday, December 4th is also SEP conferences for Taylor School.  Your student should have brought home a note reminding you of the time.  If you have any questions or need to reschedule, please contact the school or you child’s teacher.

Have a fun and safe break!!

Taylor Elementary School's students were recently delighted with a performance by Mt. Nebo Jr High's drama department.  Under the direction of Mr. Rock White, the drama classes presented an anti-bullying play for the students at Taylor Elementary.  Taylor Tigers know the importance of being a friend to all and to stand-up against bullying.  This was an exciting assembly because many former Taylor Tigers were part of the cast!  Thank you MNJHS for teaching and reminding our students how important it is to fight against bullying in our schools.

Taylor Elementary's first-grade classes recently reached a  milestone in their educational careers...the 50th day of school this year!   Students in Mrs. Fullmer, Mrs. Mayhew and Mrs. Oakeson's celebrated the day by doing a variety of learning activities. Students dressed in 50's attire, compared and contrasted the time period with modern day life, discovered different ways numbers can be built to get 50 and they ended the day with root beer floats! It was a great day for first-graders at Taylor Elementary!
