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
competition held at the end
 of March will compete
against student entries state wide. 
Congratulations to:
Satah Tu - 5th Grade
AnaMarie Schroeder - 3rd 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
Good luck Tigers!

Going beyond traditional practices
to inspire today's students
and empower tomorrow's leaders.
