Thank you to everyone who braved the heat and humidity to join us on the patio this morning! If you weren’t able to make it - don’t worry! There are still plenty of opportunities to get to know your PTA and how you can be involved. If you haven’t already done so you can sign up and volunteer through the form linked in the comments.


Happy First Day of School Owls! Thanks to all the parent volunteers, school board members, and NPS staff who helped out at drop off this morning to get all our owls through our new safety protocols and to their classrooms safely. Have a great first day of learning!


It was so great to see so many of our families at last nights meet and greet! We hope you’re as excited as we are for a fun filled and successful school year! If you couldn’t make it - don’t worry we’ll be around selling t-shirts and keychains at our other fall events. And don’t forget to sign up to be a member of the PTA using the link in the comments!


Hope all our Owls are having a great summer! I found the original lion sculpture here in Lucerne. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, next time you walk into the building take a look at the wall before turning the corner. Here it’s a memorial to the Swiss soldiers who died protecting the French king during the revolution. Not sure why it’s at Taylor…maybe someone wants to do a school history project?


The library has been transformed into a student art gallery up for this evening! One of a kind student art work will be available for purchase for $10 each. One night only 5-7!

With our families generous donations we were able to give our teachers and staff some love with a “Spatacular” week. We started with a parfait bar on Monday and followed up with tea and cakes, lunch, a chair massage, and a make your own plant bar. Thank you so much for your donations!


Teacher Appreciation week is next week! Click here to donate towards our week of giving back to the one that love and teach our kids. This has been a tough year to be an educator so let’s show them how much we love them. No amount is too big or too small. Thank you

We want to thank our Green Team leaders Mrs. Snow and Mrs. Foytik for organizing our Earth day Taylor clean up on Friday. We pulled a lot of weeds, cleaned up a lot of gumballs, painted benches in the outdoor classroom, and cleaned the herb gardens up. Be on the lookout for the green team sign up for the month or may coming soon.


Tomorrow is the Taylor lawn clean up. Bring your yard tools and come help out after school. The West Ghent Civic League and St. Andrews Church have helped us out already by tackling the thousands of “gumballs” in the front lawn but we still have a lot of work to do. We have slurpee coupons for all the kids helping out.
