We Are Stronger Together!

Hello Taylor Families!

I hope this message finds you well.  On behalf of the PTA Board, I wanted you to know that we have been thinking about all of you and praying that everyone stays healthy. We can do this! I know these are stressful times for everyone (administration, teachers, parents, and students) involved. We have the best and most supportive parents here at Taylor and we will get through these tough times and shine🌞

The Taylor PTA Board would like to welcome all of you to the 2020-2021 school year at Taylor Elementary.

I am so excited and honored to be your PTA President.  I am incredibly lucky because we have such a great group of men and women on our PTA Board.  With their love and support of our school, I know we are going to have a fantastic year!

Taylor PTA advocates for ALL children in our community.  We also provide programs on campus and virtually to enhance education, provide educational resources, and host events to promote family engagement.  We cannot do it, though, without your support 🙂

We are striving for 100% membership.  This is so important, not only for our school but also at the State level when it comes to fighting for better school funding.  With your contribution, your child’s voice is heard.  Texas PTA’s motto “Back the Future” is spot on with what we are trying to accomplish here at Taylor

Please note no matter if your child attends virtually or will attend face to face. Please consider joining your PTA here today to help make a positive impact on your child’s educational future!


Thank you for Backing the Future!
