Good Afternoon OES Families,

This week is our Parent Teacher conference week.  If you haven’t signed up for a conference time either in person or virtually, please contact your student’s teacher ASAP.

We have many items in our lost and found.  Please have your child check the tables out in front of the office to see if they have any items.  If you are attending Parent Teacher Conferences in person, please take a quick look to see if you can find any lost items.

Box Tops – If you have any physical Box Tops, please send them to school this week.  Right now there are a couple of ways to support our school by collecting Box Tops.


You can still clip them and send them to school.  Physical Box Top clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store.  Send your clipped Box Tops, along with any unexpired clips you may have at home, to Orem Elementary. 


No more clipping. Tap the scan button and snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase
