Donations Needed for STEAM Lab


*Science *Technology *Engineering  *Art  *Math

STEAM Class is a new related arts class that integrates art, collaborative learning, science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum to bring creative and engaging concepts to life with hands-on experiences.

STEAM education is important for many reasons:

*Helps kids ask questions  *Connects the dots   *Problem solve

*Think creatively  *Be innovative  *Work as a team

*Focuses on the process which helps drive innovation

*Teaches the power of observation, of people, and your surroundings

*Helps promote spatial awareness and mathematical concepts like geometry

We are collecting new and gently used items listed below help support hands-on learning in cooperative groups:

Legos     Lego plates    Floor Puzzles  Magna Tiles

K’Nex   Magz-Bricks Builders  Snap Circuits

Building Toys  Gears

Please contact Stacy Merritt if you have questions (355-7428 or smmerritt@greenville.k12.sc.us).  You can drop off the donated items in the front office.  

Always collecting- masking tape, aluminum foil, toothpicks, index cards, bowls, toilet paper or paper towel rolls, dry erase markers, rubber bands, piper cleaners, and string.


My Energy Kit Challenge

Hey parents! Don't forget to request your FREE energy efficiency kit, and help our school win cash rewards. Go to MyEnergyKit.org, request your free kit, and be sure to credit Taylors Elementary School with your sign-up. Together our school can save 20,000 kWh of energy and meet the #MyEnergyKitChallenge!  Remember that our school receives $250 for every 100 signups! (Even if you signed up last year, it will still counts towards our challenge when you sign up again.)

Lost and Found


Parents, we need your help.  Each week we have dozens of jackets and coats left at lost and found.  If they have a name  on the inside, we get the coat or jacket back to the right student.  However, most of the time the coats and jackets have no name.  Please help us by putting your child's name inside his or her coat.

Also, on the last Friday of each month, we will be donating unclaimed lost and found jackets, coats, hats, etc to a local charity.  

Thank you for your help.
