Alpine School District and Utah Parent Center Parent Night 

Thursday, October 22, 6:30-8:00

Impulse Control: What is it and How do we Get it? 

Presented by Karen Fairchild, LCSW

Some children struggle to slow down enough to think through an urge to do something. They feel an urge to act and before they, or anyone else knows it, they’ve acted out in spite of predictable negative consequences.

This Parent Night will focus on: 

  • Helping children recognize impulses

  • Developing plans for slowing down their reactions

  • Becoming motivated to practice skills.

Please register at https://bit.ly/2RR0av6 to participate virtually. 

Questions? Call Maria Wiscombe (Utah Parent Center Parent Consultant for Alpine School District) at 801-318-1959 or email at [email protected]

Good Afternoon OES Families,

We have only a few items of business today. First of all, thank you to all of our families that turned in your library and home reading books this summer. We are still missing around 100 of our home reading library books. We are just about to get our Home Reading program going, but we are missing so many books. Will you please look around your home to see if you have a home reading book that you could return to us? The cost to replace a home reading book is $10 per book.

If your child has a home reading book that was not returned, it will result in a delay of when they will be able to take home another book from our Library.

We appreciate all of your help.

Our PTA Reflections program is upon us. The deadline to submit your project is October 13th, 2020. Please see the attached flyers for more information.

The following message is from our wonderful PTA:

Please get online and order your masks and lanyards soon. They are being delivered this week so this is your last chance to pre-order them. We will be distributing them next week and if there are any left over we will sell those as well. More details on distribution will come early next week. If you come to our PTA meeting Monday, 10am in the gym you can pick up your pre-ordered masks and lanyards.
