GREAT NEWS! -  Taylor now participates in a federal program called CEP (Community Eligibility Provision).  This means every student in the Taylor School District will receive one free breakfast and one free lunch. Breakfast is served in Career Center North - the brick building next to the main building.

The Marketing and DECA students sure have been busy, keep up on their activities, here.  Did you ever wonder what DECA can do for you?  Check out this video to find out.
