Taylor Elementary was awarded $5,500 to support the Leader in Me Program. The award was made possible by a grant from the Pine Bluff Area Community Foundation, an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation.
Over 1000 food items were donated by students and their families the week of October 14th through the 18th to the White Hall Food Pantry. Mrs. Brandy Tomboli, Gandy Computer Lab Manager, is the regular sponsor for the annual food drive. Gandy students from Mrs. Queck’s 5th grade donated the most items and will be recognized as the winning class in the food drive competition.
Congratulations to Gandy's Teacher of the Quarter
