The 2016 Carnival at Taylor Mills was a blast! This was my 2nd year attending this fun event. It was on Thursday May 12, 2016, a beautiful night to have the carnival. The weather that day made it even more enjoyable. There was an ice truck and a cotton candy machine. Also, there was a huge blow up slide that you could race your friend down!
Inside the gym were all different games to play. If you won, you got prizes like little stuffed animals, tattoos, stickers, or even CANDY! Inside the cafeteria, gift baskets were being raffled off.
If you were hungry for some actual food, you could go to the stand and buy pizza, chips, or a drink. Many Taylor Mills families and staff members came to have some fun at the 2016 Taylor Mills Carnival. I can't wait until next year!
Fun & Field Day
By Mary Kovaleski
Fun and Field Day is a very exciting day for Taylor Mills. It is a day where there are blow up rides that all of the students at Taylor Mills can go on. There are also relay races. I remember one of them from last year. You had to run to a cone and back. Also, while you were running, you had to soak a sponge on your head.
That was my favorite relay race. Fun and Field Day was held on Thursday, May 26. Also, there was a dunk tank again like last year. You get 50 minutes for the relay races and 50 minutes for the rides. That is a lot of time. There is one more thing. This year for Fun and Field Day, the class that improved the most on the Link It test in each grade (2nd - 5th) got 50 extra minutes on the rides. Also, the top 2 classes that improved the most will get to play in a kick ball game on either Team Walsh or Team Marsala. I think this year's Fun and Field Day was even better than last year's day!
