Veterans Day Program

On Friday, November 8, we held our Veterans day program at 9:00 a.m. Sam Grimes, a veteran who served in the army from 1967 through 1969, came and spoke to us. Mr. Grimes served one tour of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter crew chief. He has 34 years working in law enforcement and is now the constable of the Snowflake Precinct. He is also a member of the American Legion Post in Snowflake.

Raylee Hancock, student body president, started off the program with the pledge. Ms. Muder said a few words about how important the Veterans are and how we need to remember and thank each one them. The fifth and sixth grade choir sang a song. Mr. Grimes spoke and shared a video of his helicopter that is now in a museum in Arkansas. He talked to the students about the flag and what it represents. He did a demo on flags and what the American Legion does to retire a flag. The program concluded with Maeser Flake playing TAPS.

    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.
