Welcome to Taylor Street Elementary School, home of the Bears!
Taylor Street is a dynamic school which provides all of our students with a variety of opportunities ranging from our Gifted and Talented Program for students who perform at high levels in the classroom as well as on their annual state test, our English Language Development Program for students who are multi-lingual, and our Special Education classes addressing various student needs in class and in small groupings. In addition, our students participate in small group interventions throughout the year. We are committed to the educational achievement of all students and look to our parents to be active partners in the education of their children.
Along with academics, safety is a primary concern at Taylor Street School. Behaviors and interactions at Taylor Street revolve around three simple principles: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. Students are taught the expectations by their teachers at the beginning of the year and are reviewed periodically throughout the year.
We value our parents and community members and welcome them to be an important part of their child's education. Opportunities for parent involvement include helping teachers in the classroom, preparing materials for class projects, chaperoning events, and being an extra set of eyes on the playground. In addition, we have a Parent Teacher Club (PTC) that is doing great things and has already raised nearly $4000 in its first year of existence.
I am excited to be the principal of Taylor Street School, and look forward to working with the Taylor community and doing great thing!
