The Taylor Parks Elementary School Student Council has been selling candy filled plastic Easter eggs to raise money for "Fun Day."
Members has been working long and hard to fill hundreds of eggs to sell before school and also during Parent/Teacher conferences.
All proceeds will go toward the end of the school year celebration, known as Taylor Parks Fun Day. This year Fun Day will be held on Friday, June 6. Students will play carnival games, jump in inflatable bouncers, and take part in water games, while enjoying the very popular treats of sno-cones and cotton candy.
How many did you say ... that's right, 598 books read!
That's correct, 598 books were read by Taylor Parks Elementary School students in Mrs. Young's first-grade class.
To celebrate "March is Reading Month," the students took on the challenge to discover how many books they could actually read. The class keep a day by day tally posted on their classroom door and the more the total grew, the more the students wanted to read.
To cap off the amazing success, a pizza party was in order. Mrs. Young is proud of her students.
