Monday Dress

We are seeing some great neon on Mondays! Let's just remember that Monday dress is an outfit of black/white combination (all black is okay, or all white) with neon accessories. Accessories can include jewelry, hair items, shoes, an undershirt popping out color, scarf, cardigan, basically anything accenting the outfit. Save your neon shirts/pants for another day of the week.

Taylor Celebrates...

State Accountability Distinction Report was released and we maintained a distinction in the area of student growth...3 years in a row!

Congrats to Heather for being elected to serve on our District Improvement Team! What a wonderful opportunity to have a Taylor voice contributing to the development of our District Action Plan and what great learning she will bring back to us in developing our Campus Action Plan.

Thank you Instructional Support Team for pulling together to provide coverage for Sue McAdams training this Thursday!

Congrats, Laura Wynia! Her son Tim just committed to play at the University of Oklahoma...he is only a sophomore in high school! Ask her all about it.

Join PTA!

Do you want to earn a “Golden Apple Award” from the Texas PTA? It would be great for Taylor to get that this year. Our PTA supports our campus goals so we need to support theirs. Besides, we know how much they do for us...Thursday folders, work room jobs, chaperone field trips, staff luncheons, etc...

Please go online and join on the Taylor PTA website (www.taylorelementarypta.org). Make sure you selecting Faculty as membership type so we can easily find you on the membership list.

Make sure to stay on track making those initial positive contacts to parents. Remember, it can be a phone call, a quick email, or a note in their binder...just something that shows the parents you are excited to have their child. The initial expectation was within first four weeks of school. Knowing how much time you've put into to meeting, especially teams with several new staff members, I want to extend time frame to September 23rd.

Please turn in Sunshine Dues to Jean. You can pay half this semester and half in January.

Join PTA who sponsors so much for us! www.taylorelementarypta.org

T-TESS Goal Setting & PD Plan is due September 23rd.
