River Cats rev up Taylor School

River Cats rev up Taylor School

“I Can! I Will! Succeed!” That was the message that students at Taylor Street Elementary School heard from Tony Asaro, Community Relations Spokesperson for the Sacramento Rivercats on Tuesday morning.

Tuesday’s event celebrated the kick-off of state testing of 2nd-6th grade students at Taylor Street Elementary. The Sacramento Rivercats sponsor school programs centered on the AAA theme of “Attitude, Attendance and Academics” and that theme was emphasized to students as they were encouraged to believe in themselves and do their best not only on the test but in all aspects of their lives.

Over the next two weeks students will be testing in English-Language Arts, Math and Science.

Go Taylor Bears!

Taylor Street School playwright produced by B Street Company

Taylor Street School playwright produced by B Street Company

The B Street Theatre School Tour production of Fantasy Festival XXVI hits the road this spring.  This is the 26th year that elementary and middle schools students throughout northern California have submitted original plays to B Street’s annual playwriting contest for young people.  Mutts in a Rutt by Kimberly Bean of Taylor Street Elementary School is one of only 5 plays selected from over 150 entries to be acted out by the professional actors of B Street Theatre. 

Kimberly Bean is a 6th grade student enrolled in the Gifted and Talented Program at Taylor Street Elementary School and wrote the play as part of a class project.  Her inspiration for the play was inspired by a pet poodle named “Mimi” who is a rescue pet.

Mutts in a Rutt will be performed in over 108 schools in northern California beginning on March 19 and culminating on June 8, 2012 with a performance at Taylor Street Elementary School.

Every 15 Minutes program makes am impact

The powerful "Every 15 Minutes" program is a striking visual for high school students of what happens after a DUI accident. Real emergency crews respond and actual students portray the victims, often to the surprise of students watching. April marks distracted driving awareness month and "Every 15 Minutes" sponsors like CHP and State Farm and MADD hope it will make a life and death difference when making decisions behind the wheel.
