Dear Taylor Eagles,

Thank you for making our teachers feel appreciated during Teacher Appreciation Week. I saw students bring in cards, flowers, sweet treats, and gift bags filled with surprises. Our teachers have been true heroes this year and we are so grateful to have the support of our parents and students.

We will continue GMAS testing next week. Grades 3-5 will take their math GMAS. Please help us by making sure your child is at school on time every day.

School Nurse Appreciation Day is, Wednesday, May 12th. Please show Nurse Molly some love!

As the school year ends, all books are due back to the media center on May 13th. You will also get more information about the process to return your GCPS issued laptop.

“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me. “Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers)

Have a Wonderful Weekend!
