The 7-8 Class takes their inaugural trip to Troy Public Library!  

PreK students have the opportunity to touch and observe our live monarch caterpillars-providing them with hands-on experience as they learn about the life cycle of butterflies.
Through journaling, reflection, and discussion, the 7th and 8th grade students formed their own "class contract" outlining the values they believed would create a space that keeps school meaningful for all. 
> "our space is a place where we can all feel important, empowered, and seen" 
>> "keep school meaningful by being kind to others, amd make sure to respect them and their boundaries" 
>>>"keep school meaningful by enjoying the day"

The 5-6 students are involved in a year-long "Mapping the World" study. The students have been working as cartographers as they create a physical relief globe. They used the latitude and longitude lines to accurately place continents, islands, mountain ranges, major rivers, seas, and oceans on their maps. They will use color in the next few weeks to show elevation changes.

In kindergarten, play and learning is one and the same. Children learn through interactions with peers, through manipulation of materials and through exploration indoors and out. And, of course, lots of fun!

It's so good to be back at school! The Taylor School started the school year with smiles, exploration and the arts! 

In culmination of an amazing year, the 3-4 students were presented with two Think Tank challenges to choose from. Under certain constraints, students were asked to use the engineering-design process to make Catapult Launchers and/or Marble Mazes. Through trial and error, and redesigning with growth mindset, each student constructed their own devices and contraptions.

Thank you to Coach Haggerty for Field Day 2022! The students enjoyed kickball, a water balloon toss, mummy relay, bike obstacle course, water sponge relay, popsicles, signing yearbooks and lots of fun!!
