Our school programs are part of our strong foundation at Taylor Elementary. We suggest reading through our list of school programs to see if any will benefit your child.
All of the classrooms at Taylor Elementary have student computers, usually one computer for every two students. These are used to introduce computer literacy as well as to incorporate computer-assisted instruction. All of the classrooms have access to the Internet, which is a valuable learning resource for students and teachers alike. The students will have the opportunity to access the Internet under the direction and close supervision of the teacher; however, prior to the students being able to access the Internet, parents/guardians must sign a parent permission form. Parents will receive the form at the beginning of the school year.
We know the Internet can be a scary place, but it also is a great resource for learning. Check out some credible, safe, and educational websites we’ve found for our student’s to use at home.
Designed for students who come from non-English-speaking families, our English as a Second Language (ESL) program provides the support, encouragement, and learning materials necessary for these students to thrive in an English-speaking environment.
The Media Center’s goal at Taylor Elementary is to help the children enjoy literature and begin to develop the skills they will need to become life-long learners. The Media Center serves as a resource to faculty and provides enrichment for classroom curriculum. We will expose children to different types of media. They will also participate in research activities and interact with many types of stories.
All children will visit the Media Center at regularly scheduled times. We allow kindergarten children to check out one book per week (with a signed parent permission slip). We allow children in grades 1 through 3 to check out one book at a time, and they may trade books as often during the week as they like.
We offer special education services for students who qualify in the following categories: learning disabled, emotionally handicapped, hearing impaired, speech disorders, physically handicapped, gifted, visually handicapped, and trainable mentally handicapped.
If you believe your son/daughter is eligible for our special education services, please contact our district office for more information.
Title I Reading & Math is a remedial program we provide for students who need additional assistance in these academic areas.
