A Message from Our Principal

Debbie Mudder

Dear Taylor Intermediate Family,

Wow! What an ending to the 2019–2020 school year. Who would have ever thought something like this would happen. I pray that you are all well and enjoying family time together. As I walk the hallways of the school, I miss the children and their laughter, the conversations between students and teacher, the sound of little feet running down the hall when they think no one is watching, the sound of the rooster crowing each morning, and trumpet calling the students back to class after recess. I miss our students and teachers! This is definitely not how I planned to end the school year.

Amidst all the uncertainty and confusion of COVID-19, I hope our students are continuing to learn and grow. Please continue reading and taking AR tests. The teachers are spending lots of time putting together lessons and activities for their students. Packets will continue to be available at the school from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily. Grab and go breakfast and lunches are available Monday through Friday at Taylor Elementary from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.

We have changed the AR school goal for me to color my hair pink from 180 million words to 140 million words. If the students reach this goal by May 22, I will dye my hair pink and wear my pink tutu during the first week of the new school year. The word count at end of March is 115,666,758.

I cannot say enough good about all the students, the teachers, and staff, as well as all you parents. I appreciate so much the support you have given to your students and my staff. We couldn't fully accomplish what we need to with your children without your support at school and especially at home. We have an incredible community that values education and recognizes the importance of supporting their students as they are building their educational foundation. 

As always, this past year was a very special year with many positive memories that will last a lifetime. 

Parents, please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your job easier. If you have any comments or concerns about your child or their assignments, please contact me at (928) 457-6320.

Please stay safe. I miss and love each one of you. I am looking forward to returning to school soon.
