Principal's Message

Thursday, January 26, 2023

Good afternoon Taylor families!  Due to tomorrow’s half-day, I wanted to get this message out to you a day early. I thank you for reading!

One final reminder that tomorrow, Friday, January 27 is a half-day for all students UPK – 12. 

For students in grades K-5: While breakfast will remain available as normal, students will not be served lunch and they will not have specials on this day.  With respect to dismissal, those who are being picked up will be called down to the cafeteria beginning at 11:40 am, and those taking the bus will be dismissed shortly after with buses rolling away from the building and on their way home at 12:00 pm.  If you are planning on picking up your child on this half-day, please send in a note ahead of time so that we can prepare for the busiest dismissal of the year, and we will open our doors to have you sign your child out at 11:30 am.  As is our normal daily practice, no bus passes will be issued, so unless we have a pick up note, your child will take his/her normal bus home.  Thanks in advance for your support with this half-day schedule!

For our UPK students and families: Our pre-k students will alter our dismissal location to Door 1 (main entrance) where designated pick-up persons should arrive at 11:10 for dismissal.

Instructionally, our entire staff will be working together on the morning of the 27th to offer students a number of learning experiences aligned to our common district and building goal of Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Education (CRSE).  While each grade level will be using developmentally appropriate texts supported by engaging dialogue and activities, all students will be engaging in a common identity activity that will bring us back to our author visit from Susan Verde and her book: I am Me, and its theme of what makes us each special and unique!

Author Visit: We are excited to share that author Susan Verde will be visiting our school this afternoon! She will be sharing about her journey as an author, including her book, I Am Me: A Book of Authenticity. Her presentation will include positive affirmations, mindfulness, and yoga.  As we prepare for Susan Verde's visit, we will be reading several of her books and engaging in related activities to learn more about her and each other.  If you would like to order any of Susan Verde's books, you may use the link: https://www.bookhampton.com/author/susan-verde  All books will be shipped directly to you! There is an option to have the book signed and personalized if desired. We look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks! 

Valentine’s Day: While I hope this upcoming holiday provides our students with an experience to exchange cards and kindnesses, a naturally sweet holiday doesn’t need anything extra!  In all sincerity, I want to thank you in advance for remembering that in support of allergy awareness and wellness policy, Spencerport’s elementary schools utilize food-free celebrations.  Thank you for sharing in our commitment to keep all students safe and healthy by not including treats with your student's Valentines. Look for more details from your student's classroom teacher. 

Taylor Cares:

Special Olympics: Thank you to all who supported our coin drive to help us raise money for the Rochester Area Special Olympics.  I am almost certain that an onsite “Polar Plunge” is in my future.

PTO sneaker drive: We have a full box of donated sneakers to send away for recycling! Thanks to all who have cleared out closets to donate.

Diaper Drive: In the month of February, we will be collecting diapers for the Rochester Diaper Bank. If you would like to donate diapers of any size, please send them in prior to February recess.

Thank you for your continued partnership,

Telcie Pincelli
