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.

Annual Staff Dinner

Our annual staff dinner took place at Vance and Michelle Muder's home on August 19. It was a time for all staff and their families to come together and get to know each other outside of the school. A delicious meal was prepared by Vance, Michelle, Debbie Muder, and Brecka Rogers. A great time was had by all. A huge thank you to Vance and Michelle Muder and Debbie Muder.

District Back-to-School Preparations
View more photos of the staff preparation meetings

The beginning of the year for Snowflake Unified School District takes a lot of work. Please enjoy these pictures of our meetings for teachers and staff. We have our teacher orientation, which includes a tour of the schools in our Lobo bus, and the traditional Trappers pie. Staff orientation, secretary meetings, food service meetings, CPR training, bus trainings, mentor meetings, and sub training are all a part of our back-to-school preparations. Every year we kick off with a huge pep assembly to create unity and Lobo spirit amongst the staff. Administration and board members get in on the fun, making sure that the staff knows hard work and fun go hand in hand. This district is a wonderful place to work!
