Clarence Randall Elementary is named a Reward School by The State of Michigan in 2012!
Taylor schools are proud to announce that we have four schools designated as a Reward School! They are Kennedy High School, Randall Elementary, Kinyon Elementary and McDowell Elementary. Over 280 schools in Michigan have been designated as Reward Schools for either high student achievement or making tremendous progress in student achievement. Reward Schools are one of three new school designations that came as the result of Michigan receiving flexibility to the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act from the U.S. Department of Education.

2003 award was for Randall Players Performing Arts Drama Club
Randall Players is a Performing Arts Drama Club that was conceived in the fall of 1995 to meet the needs of the at-risk students at Randall Elementary School. Students learn and practice recall, vocal music, diction, focus and movement while researching historical characters and developing responsibility. Students ultimately discover and prove their personal and team strengths and take pride in the design and presentation of a musical production in a Dinner Theatre format. Taylor's Performing Arts Drama Club is unique. It provides an environment, within an elementary school setting, that encourages all students to learn and work as a team. Students broaden their circle of friends and learn to appreciate each other's strengths and talents. Students take pride in their work and exhibit their personal best. The demand for the program has risen each year despite a drop in overall school enrollment. At-risk and special education students also play a valuable role. That's one impressive curtain call!
