from Principal Gilbert
The End of the Year is Near! Happy May!
I want to thank our Taylor Community for supporting us with our Arts Pathway application. Unfortunately, we were not chosen as the district pathway. We are very disappointed but please know that nothing we are currently doing will change with regards to our Arts Integrated instruction and pasion for this philosophy of teaching and learning! We wil continue to provide creative opportunities for your child as he/she learns curriculum standards. We strongly believe in this work and with community support, we will do what's best for students and grow young artists. dancers, creators, musicians, sports starts and everything else in between!
Thank you again for your support of our staff and students! We love our Taylor community!!!

About Our School
We dare to empower the whole student to
profoundly impact our world.
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.
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.
