Good Afternoon OES Families,
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. December is usually a busy month, however this December will be pretty low key.
In lieu of our annual in person Christmas Sing, we will have a virtual performance from each grade level. I will send this out via email on December 18th. As with the Halloween virtual parade, if you would like your child to be included in the virtual performances, please make sure Skyward is up to date.
In order to update your Skyward account, please log into your Skyward account, then select:
Student Information Update
On the right hand side you will find student personal information release. There are 2 spots that need to be filled. The two spots that need to be checked are:

This release will allow your student to participate in our Virtual Christmas Sing, as well as be in the yearbook.
The main dates to be aware of are:
December 18, 2020 – Minimal Day

United Way has a program to help with Christmas. Please see the attached flyer.
In years past, Orem Elementary teachers have donated money for some of our families to help with Christmas. We are doing that again this year, just on a much smaller scale. Sometimes, families in our school have asked about donations. If you would like to make a donation to help some children in our school with Christmas, you can donate money to the Alpine Foundation, Orem Elementary Christmas Fund.
Have a great week!
