Roadrunner Update

April 2022

A note from our Principal, Dr. Ayala

Hello Staff, Students, and Parents!

We spend a lot of time here at Mt. Taylor. How do we create a positive environment for everyone to learn, work and live?

Please watch this short video on school climate for some ideas on making a difference in other people's lives.

Sometimes all it takes is to say good morning and smile.

Have a great day!

Looking back on March...

1st Grade

The First Grade Easter Egg Hunt will be on April 14th! We would appreciate a donation of 2 dozen plastic eggs and 1 bag of wrapped candy per first grade student. Please send these donations to your child's teacher before 4/14. We will be filling the eggs in class so please do not send them prefilled.

This month we will also be studying the Life Cycle of a Chicken and hatching eggs in an incubator in each classroom. We are so excited for this program!

If you need any other information, please let us know!

2nd Grade

Hello families,

On Thursday, April 14th we will be participating in Easter themed activities in our classrooms. We are asking parents to donate 12 plastic filled eggs. Each egg should be filled with a peanut-free, prepackaged treat or prize. Please fill the eggs before sending them to school.

Once again, our students have been working hard to gain fluency in their reading. Remember, you can help them by spending 15-20 minutes a night reading their library books. Our goal last month was to increase the amount of books read in each classroom by 20 books. Here’s how we did; Munson’s class read 150 books in February and 245 in March; Sanders’ class read 137 books in February and 149 in March; Tafoya’s class read 95 books in February and 129 in March. Great job second grade!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Mrs. Munson, Mrs. Sanders, & Mrs. Tafoya
