The group won 18 medals Saturday and have members who wrote papers that will also qualify. The head of the program, Carly Barnard Lundgren, posted that she was “super proud” of her DECA crew, which faced “extremely tough competition” in the district.

All of our students scored well. The blog will have more on this in future posts.

TAYLOR SCHOOL DISTRICT seeks input from residents

Dear Taylor School District students, parents, and community members:

On behalf of the Board of Education, we would like to ask for your help in sharing your perspective on several topics critical to the development of the district’s next strategic plan.

To help the Board of Education with its strategic planning process, the district has attached a link to a survey on the district website. The data gathering survey is being administered by the MASB Leadership Development team on behalf of the school district and takes about 10 minutes to complete.

RANDALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL prepared well for the holidays

Before the holiday break Randall Elementary School students searched for the Grinch throughout the school. They wanted to make sure he wouldn't steal their holiday spirit. 

Student Council organized “Ho Ho Holiday” with candy grams for sale, Mustang Book Corral, school store, and holiday themed spirit week. Monday - Crazy Holiday Hair day; Tuesday - Favorite Holiday Character; Wednesday - Pajama day; Thursday - Snow Day; Friday - Red, White and Green Day.

Randall's Junior BETA Club sponsored "Jingle All the Way" and collected coins December 11-20. The money collected went to our Taylor Animal Shelter. We also collected new hats, scarves, mittens and gloves which were donated to people in our community who were in need.

Thank you to everyone who donated or participated in the activities!

Randall was busy in the weeks prior to break with a lot of Christmas spirit.
