Happy New Year!

from Principal Gilbert

Welcome to the New Year!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Staff and I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family. Teachers are already back working. They will have report cards for you to view online by Friday. Students start school via Remote Learning on Wednesday, Jan. 6th. The same schedule should be followed as prior to Winter Break.

As of today, students will return to IN-person learning on Tuesday, Jan. 19th.

Teachers and staff are excited to see all of our students! We have missed everyone so much!!!

About Our School

Our Mission

We dare to empower the whole student to

profoundly impact our world.



Our Vision

To be a school where we build positive relationships and empower students to be innovative thinkers and problem solvers who take ownership of their education through a growth mindset.


Taylor is a school committed to excellence and putting kids first. Academic achievement, commitment to safety, and a sense of belonging and community are high priorities. We have a dedicated PTA who highly support staff and students! Taylor is an Arts Integrated school providing students opportunities to learn through interdisciplinary content and demonstrate their learning through project-based activities. Our teachers utilize problem-based learning approaches, and rigorous college and career readiness standards. Our students demonstrate a high depth of knowledge, practice social and relational skills, and develop strong personal values. Students are provided opportunities to solve problems through the application of creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills. Taylor is committed to preparing students to become productive 21st century citizens through quality instruction and high expectations for student ownership of learning. This year, we have started our journey as a Capturing Kids’ Hearts school.

Questions and Comments

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on how we can improve what we do. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Gilbert at any time. You can also join us at our PTA meetings each 2nd Tuesday of the month at 5:30p.m. in our library. We'd love to see you!

What is SAC?

SAC stands for School Accountability Committee. SAC represents the school communities’ points of view and makes recommendations to the building principal for school improvement. With input from school principals, teachers, and SAC members, information is compiled which can be used to develop the School Improvement Plan.

GOALS of SAC:

· Facilitate communication between the school and the community.

· Discuss issues of Curriculum, Budget, Growth, Safety, Wellness, and Communication.

· Discuss all major school issues.

· Report to the DAC and the Board of Education.

Our SAC is combined with PTA meetings. Please join us if you'd like to be involved.
