CAREER CENTER students travel to Southland, Cinemark

On February 3 the Career Center’s Business, Administration and Management students took a field trip to Cinemark Southland Center and XD and Southland mall.

At the movie theater, students were introduced to the manager and given a first-hand experience on how to manage a movie theater. They were then invited to watch the movie “Hidden Figures,” which features women in STEM careers. 

After the movie theater portion of our field trip the students were taken to Southland where they conducted a Business and Marketing scavenger hunt.

The scavenger hunt required students to find real-life examples of the business and marketing concepts that they are learning about in class. A special thank you goes to all of the businesses that made this field trip possible.

KINYON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 100 days means a collection

It's the 100th day of school at Kinyon Elementary School and the kindergarteners have brought in their 100 collections!


Taylor Parks Elementary School pupils received a “Helping Hand” so that they could visit the Hands On Museum in Ann Arbor. With a grant from Delta Dental, students from the classroom of Mrs. Abramas, Mrs. Young and Mrs. Sloan enjoyed exhibits such as H2Oh! and Tornados. They even explored an ambulance.

KINYON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL children learn about their planet

Kinyon Elementary School kindergarteners have been learning about the Earth and are having a blast making their own homes for pet rocks!

DADDY-DAUGHTER DANCES a big attraction

The City of Taylor's 2017 Daddy-Daughter Dances were held recently at the Lakes of Taylor Banquet facilities. Both dances were a sellout and were heavily attended by Taylor students and parents.

Highlights of the event included photos of each of the couples, which were taken at the first-floor entrance to the clubhouse. In the lobby upstairs, each young lady was able to build her own teddy bear, a new feature of the event.

The girls picked out their bear, help stuff it with the aid of air-powered machines full of feathers, added its own "heart" and T-Shirts and even received an official "birth certificate."

Inside the banquet room, there was food, refreshments and plenty of candy, cookies and cakes.

The girls, in the 12-and-under range, looked great in their colorful formal dresses, shoes and makeup.

Oh, and the dad's didn't do a bad just, either.
