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.
