Happy April Fool’s Day!!!

Thanks to everyone who has liked our social media pages. It has been fun and a little scary reading books live on Facebook, but WOW it is so nice to be able to connect with some of you.

Tomorrow I will be posting a video of a science project and also adding to my happiness jar. I hope all of our students are thinking of things that make them happy. Like I said, it’s the people I do my activities that make me happy the most. We are fortunate to be able to spend time with our families and connect with so many others electronically during this social distancing time. I know it’s not the same, believe me when I say everyone at Orem Elementary is missing our students and families far beyond what words can say.

Today we had some teachers come and wrap yellow ribbons around our school yard. We stayed our 6ft apart, but oh, how we enjoyed talking to each other in person and seeing a few students walk by as they picked up their lunch.

This Friday, we will be doing a car parade around our school boundaries. Please see the link below for the route that we will take. I hope it’s nice weather, and I know that our teachers and I are looking forward to seeing as many of our students as we can.


Please check your mail – like the post office mail, each family was mailed a little something for our Lemon Drop Week. We mailed a lot of items all at once, but be on the watch for a little something.

Next week is Spring Break. Originally, April 6th was supposed to be a Snow Make Up day, but as of now, it is not. Spring Break will be from April 6th – 10th – no school work will be assigned for April 6th.

If your family still needs a Chromebook, please email our Computer Specialist: [email protected]. This Friday will be the last day that Chromebooks will be available to check out.

A reminder that our office hours are from 8:00am – 12:00pm. The school will be locked, but if you have any questions, you can call the school. If we are busy on another call, leave a message and we will get back to you.

Breakfast and lunch pick up is from 9:30am – 11:00am.

Have a great day!!!
