Taylor's 5th grade program

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Tue, 05/19/2015 - 16:41
Students in fifth grade shared their end-of-year program for parents and the fourth-grade. 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.

Parents! Taylor School's 3rd-6th grades will be swimming at Payson Pool on Thursday May 28th from 1-3 p.m. Payson city has asked that we bring 1 parent per 5 kids attending. That means......we need a lot of parent help! If you are able to attend, this would make it SO much easier to keep kids supervised!

If you can help, please contact your student's teacher!

* Yes, there will still be lifeguards

*Yes, you'll need to be in the water, walking around the edges, and reminding kids to follow all rules.

Students in the kindergarten classes visited the lavender farm in Mona!  Students were able to ride on a horse drawn wagon, plant lavender seeds, see buffalo, camels, cows, horses and even old fashioned carriages and coaches!  When asked, kindergarten students said their favorite part was "riding the bus, seeing the big equipment and even seeing "sharks" in the pond!"    We sure love our kindergarten students!!

Taylor's Kindergarten classes have been watching the lifecycles of butterflies for the past few weeks.  They've watched catepillars transform into beautiful butterflies and today was the day to finally let them go!   Many of the butterflies stayed on students hands, arms and even heads!!!  This was a great science study for students at Taylor to be involved in!
