Welcome to Taylor PTA
Taylor Middle School PTA in Millbrae, CA helps fund the Homework Center, field trip buses, supplies, staff appreciation events, grade-specific enrichment events, parent information gatherings, safety supplies, and more! Please join our PTA and make your annual contribution today. Your participation and support makes a big difference to the success of our school!
One specific goal we have this year is to raise funds to help replace many outdated televisions and projectors in about 20 classrooms at Taylor. New curriculum such as Amplify and Illustrative Mathematics include a vast array of online resources, and it would help our teachers to have easy to use modern televisions in the classrooms. Please help us meet this goal by donating towards this cause today!

Dear Taylor families,
We hope you enjoyed the holiday season!
We wanted to start by thanking you for dropping off your cookies/desserts for our teachers and staff just before break -- they felt your appreciation!
We also want to thank the families who purchased Dave & Busters game cards. We were able to raise almost $4,000 through your support!
We are excited that a few of the classrooms will be getting new televisions soon to replace outdated projectors or old televisions. The teachers will be able to more effectively incorporate online teaching resources as a result! This wouldn't be possible without the generous support of Taylor families who have made donations to the PTA -- thank you!
Please save the date for our next PTA Association Meeting on Monday, February 4 at 7 pm at Taylor Library. We will have a special speaker presenting an important topic that today's teen and tween parents must be aware of. Stay tuned for the official announcement soon.
Also, please save the date for Taylor PTA's biggest fundraiser of the year -- Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, February 9 from 9 am to noon at the Shea Center! There will be delicious pancakes and sausage, and raffles for special gift baskets (including 8th grade promotion VIP seats). Order forms will be sent home soon - must purchase in advance by January 28. We ask for every Taylor family's support of this important fundraiser! (And a special thank you to the Millbrae Lions for their generous support of our Pancake Breakfast!)
Thank you for caring about our students, our teachers, and our school, and we are looking forward to a bright 2019 together!
Thank you for your support!
Dear Taylor families,
We want to thank the families who collected and submitted BoxTops -- our school has earned $197! A big thank you to Mrs. Hurley and parent Susan Wu for being our school's Box Tops Coordinators, and to parents Cathy Song and Keisa Betts for their help counting the BoxTops! Please keep collecting BoxTops and submit them in batches to Mrs. Hurley. The next submission will be at the end of February. (Collection sheets can be downloaded at www.boxtops4education.com.)
Also a big thank you to the families who participated in the Good Eggs Fundraiser! We had 26 families join as new customers, our school earned $733 total, and our teachers were able to enjoy a free brunch and some pies from Good Eggs. We appreciate parent Karen Chin for bringing this fundraiser to our school!
The PTA will be selling Dave & Buster's game cards starting this week -- perfect as stocking stuffers for our middle school students! The PTA gets to keep 50% of the sales, so it's a great way to support our school. The order forms will be sent home via students later this week. The deadline for placing orders is Friday, December 14. The game cards will be delivered to students the last week of school. More details coming soon!
As you do your online holiday shopping, if you're ordering on Amazon, please remember to do so from smile.amazon.com (designate Taylor Middle PTA as your non profit of choice).

Please show your appreciation by participating in our Holiday Cookie Bonanza that day by dropping off desserts at the front office. More details and reminders to come closer to the date.
