2018-2019 Board Members

Our Alyce Taylor PTO is a non profit, parent teacher organization, who's main purpose and mission is supporting the education of our kids here at Taylor Elementary. We do this by instituting, and sustaining communication and relationships among the parents, school, and staff. The support of this is fulfilled by the planning, organizing, and executing, the many fun events we hold here throughout the year. We organize these events to supplement the districts budget for our school to help enrich our childrens education. We couldn’t do any of this without all of the support from the staff, families, and Reno/Sparks community. Thank you all!

President : Rachel Verhoef

My name is Rachel VerHoef and I am beyond excited to be the new 2018/2019 PTO president! This is my 3rd year on the PTO board and it has become a true passoin!!  I have 2 children that attend Alyce Taylor Elementary. Tanner (9) going into 4th grade, and Charlee (6) going into 1st grade! Up until recently I have been a stay at home mom and have enjoyed spending my days at the school helping out. Over the past few years it has become a true passion helping our school and getting to know you and your children. Some things that you might not know about me.... I love coffee, I am a sucker for quotes and I am a bit of an introvert. Being part of the PTO has helped push me out of my shell, but I am always working on a better me. If you see me on the playground or in the halls I hope you will say hi and even try to make a meeting or two this year!!

We live on a ranch about 40 miles away and absolutely love it. A little about me.... I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, camping, hunting, music, reality tv shows, riding horses, working cows, shopping, game nights, baseball, movies based on a true story, Christmas, coffee, and champagne. Last year was our first year at Alyce Taylor and as a member of the pto and I am now excited to serve as a board member.  I look forward to bringing in new fun and creative ideas to communicate and unite us throughout the next school year. We have a wonderful school with dedicated teachers, staff, and volunteers and I am happy to be apart of that.
