Safety Town

On September 12, Navajo County Public Health Services District partnered with Timber Mesa Fire, Banner Health, schools, Nexus Drug Coalition Program, and White Mountain Fire and Life Safety to bring Banner’s Safety Town to Navajo County residents. The presentation was in our gym from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m. This is the third year to bring this event to our community. The group discussed the importance of seat belts, taught about fire safety and having an evacuation plan, discussed stranger danger, and more. To learn more, or see pictures, please view our Safety Town flyer.

New Sign

Check out the new sign that we recently installed at Taylor Intermediate School! It is on the south wall above the gym doors. The sign is electronic, so school announcements are visible at night!

Student Council Fundraising

Taylor Intermediate Student Council does small fundraisers throughout the year to earn money for the end of the year celebration and the prizes that go along with that. SchoolMall is a no-cost-to-parents fundraiser. We had three students win prizes from the company for turning in their fill-out booklets. Ashlyn Brinkerhoff won for the inflatable chair, Lyla Craner and ALlison Yarn won the drawing for the glow-in-the-dark SpongeBob shirts.

Hello Week

Taylor Intermediate hosted a Hello Week to unite the student body. Their focus was Be Friendly, Be Kind, Remember, Save a Skyler. The students came up with dress up days with Tuesday as Western Day, Wednesday as Crazy Hair Day, Thursday as Black Out Bullying, and Friday as Crazy Hat and Blue and White Day. We chose to do our annual TI in the field on Thursday to emphasize Black out Bullying.

Reading Challenge

Taylor Intermediate School Principal Debbie Muder has put out a challenge to our students. If they can read 180,000,000 words she will color her hair pink and wear a pink tutu to school. To keep track of the word count progress we will have a thermometer in the gym with this picture at the top. We will send pictures as the progress continues throughout the year.
