Principal's Message

Picture of Principal

Welcome to the Taylor Elementary School website! I'm glad you’re here.

Taylor School is a very special, wonderful place, where teachers and staff are dedicated to providing our students with the finest education possible in a warm, nurturing, engaging environment.  We have an extremely supportive PTA and other wonderful parents who work closely with us to provide valuable experiences for all students.  I am honored to be a part of such an amazing  community.

At Taylor School, we believe that the school experience is about much more than academics. While we provide rigorous, challenging learning experiences, we are concerned with students' social and emotional development as well.  We value family input and involvement.  Our ongoing message to students is: Be safe, be kind, and do your personal best!  We promote a growth mindset where everyone is seen as an individual with unique needs, and we support each child to do his or her personal best!

We are proud to offer Welcome Wednesdays, where, approximately once per month, you are invited to join me for coffee and a time to talk, followed by a tour of some classrooms, as we highlight our signature practices.  You will see students engaged in authentic and meaningful learning experiences. You will see students demonstrating academic skills as well as 21st century learning skills such as creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking.  You will see personal relationships between staff, students and parents.  You will also see community and family volunteers supporting the teaching and learning at Taylor in a variety of ways that enrich all that we do. You will feel passion, energy and commitment from everyone!  See our google calendar for dates.

We invite you to learn more about Taylor by viewing these pages, visiting our PTA website, and liking us on Facebook .

Go Tigers!
