These students were chosen by their teachers because they make great efforts in academics and behavior choices each day in their classrooms. These students have set a high standard for the rest of the school to follow! Way to go Taylor Tigers!

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 02/11/2015 - 10:14

Each year, students in Mrs. Provstgaard's class read Newberry Award winner,  "Miracles on Maple Hill" by Virginia Sorensen.  As part of this students celebrate the book by making it come alive. A few of the activities the third graders did were creating dioramas to show how they visualized Maple Hill to look in their mind. Students also  wrote an opinion essay about whether they would like to live on Maple Hill or their own home.

Magician Teaches Students at Taylor About Anti-Bullying

Students at Taylor Elementary were recently delighted by the magical skills of magician Lance Nielson!  Lance not only taught the students about magic, he showed the students that bullying is wrong.  Lance turned to magic as a youth to distract others from the things that made him different.   He encouraged students to look at each other as friends and find the good in one another.  He even revealed a secret or two about his magic tricks!   Thank you to Taylor's PTA for inviting the students to be a part of such a great assembly!

The Living Planet Aquarium came to visit fourth-grade students teache them about Wetlands of Utah.  Fourth-graders learned about how wetlands can provide a habitat, clean water and slow floods in the state of Utah.  Students were even able to see live animals from Utah's wetlands such as salamandars, toads, and snakes.  Fourth grade student, Jack Hardy, said, "My favorite part was looking at the salamander because it was spotted and had mucus on it."  This is always a treat when the aquarium comes to visit the school because they make science in Utah come alive for students.
