  • Reflections Winners
    O.C. Taylor PTA would like to congratulate the following Tigers for winning their division in the GCISD District Level Reflections Contest.
    The O.C. Taylor students advancing to the Texas PTA competition held at the end of March will compete against student entries state wide. 
    Satah Tu - 5th Grade
    AnaMarie Schroeder - 3rd Grade
    Peyton Tatum - 2nd Grade
    This is an exciting achievement, as nearly 60,000 students participate in the program annually, and less than 3% of those students advance to Texas PTA.
    Good luck Tigers!
