Principal’s Message – May 4, 2020

May 4, 2020

Happy Star Wars Day OES Cubs!

This is a busy month here at Orem Elementary.  This week is Lemon Drop Week!  Each day at 1:30pm watch our Facebook page for some stories.  Watch your mail deliveries this week, you should be receiving a letter with a lemon surprise.  This Wednesday, we will be opening up the hot dog that we started to mummify last week. 

We are still collecting library and home reading books.  There is a bin located in front of the school.  The bin is accessible Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm.  We appreciate your help with collecting the books. 

This week your child’s teachers will be sending information about activities for field day.  On May 8th, we will be celebrating national field day.  Please see the attached information.

 We are working on an OES virtual talent show. Please keep all entries to 1 minute.  We anticipate many entries, so we have the right to shorten entries as needed.  Please ensure that any costumes are modest and music choices are appropriate.  We encourage you to continue social distancing during this time.  We will be accepting one submission per household, so please put your videos together if you have multiple talents. All entries are due Tuesday, May 12th.  Please upload them to the form below or send them to [email protected]

OES Talent Show

We are planning to post our talent show the week of May 18th.  

We are looking forward to the last two weeks of May.  More information will be coming about desk content/yearbook pick up, and other end of year celebrations.

Looking forward to summer, here is some information: 

Summer Bright Ideas: STEAM in a Sack

Bright Ideas is a program sponsored through Gifted Services for any interested and motivated elementary student. This summer, due to Covid-19, we are unable to hold our traditional two-week program. Instead, we are offering activity kits designed by our Bright Ideas teachers. Please see the attached flier for more information about the program and registration.
