Truffles and Truffula Trees- February 24, 2021

By Principal's Message

February 24, 2021

Dear OES Families, 

We have some exciting news!  Today is Truffula Tree and Utah Truffles at our school. Each class has read enough minutes that each class has earned their Truffula Tree for reading. 

Also, even more exciting, The company who makes Utah Truffles has given us a generous donation.  

Mrs. Jensen’s 6th grade classes usually write to local businesses and ask them to send donations to their classroom to fill the vending machine they have in class.  This year is no exception, except the donation was so generous that we can share with our families.  

Please see the attached flyer for more information about the donation and our chivalry challenge.

We are hoping to flood our social media pages with stories, pictures and acts of kindness and hope with this challenge.  

We are excited to see all of the wonderful acts of kindness that we can bring to others outside our school.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Good Afternoon OES Families, 

This is a quiet week, but we have a few reminders for our community.

First of all, I want to make sure that our families know that there will be no school for students on March 5, 2021.  

In person registration for Kindergarten is March 30th and 31st, 2021.  If you choose to register online, you can start registering any time now.  

Tonight is our Family Skate Night at Classic Skating.  Please see the attached flyer for more information.


Also, we are still reading for our Read-A-Thon, results come out every Tuesday.  Encourage your family and friends to read, read, read!!!!  We have some avid readers out there.

Finally, we have a special announcement and item coming home on Wednesday.  I will send out an email Wednesday morning concerning this positive Orem Elementary community event.  We can’t wait to see the results.  

Have a wonderful week.

Good Afternoon OES Families, 

Tomorrow is the day to return your home reading books for a prize.  

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day this Friday.  Remember, that students are bringing their Valentines home in a bag provided by the school.

Our Box Tops Drive continues through the end of the week. 

This month is our Read-A-Thon.  Our goal as a school is to read 300,000 minutes.  We are off to a slow start, but I am confident that we will gain some ground.  This week the students are seeing if they can out-read Mrs. Park.  Those students who read more minutes than Mrs. Park will be put in a drawing for a fantastic prize next Tuesday.  

Please remember to read, read, and read some more.

Next Monday, Feb. 15, 2021 is Presidents Day and there is no school.  

February 22, 2021 is our Family Skate Night.  

If you have any questions, please let me know.  

Have a great rest of the week!

Happy Beginning of February OES Families, 

Tonight and tomorrow evening we are holding our Parent Teacher Conferences.  We really would like every parent and teacher to connect with one another.

Here is a list of our February events and activities:

Entire Month of February- READ-A-THON (please see attached flyer).


Feb. 3-4 – Parent Teacher Conferences 

Feb. 5 – Regular School Day

Feb. 11 – Return Home Reading Books for prize on the 12th

Feb. 8-12 Box Tops Drive

Feb. 8-9 Valentine Giveaways due to teachers, so they can be quarantined.  As a school this year, we are having students decorate sacks in their classrooms.  If they choose to bring Valentines, we are asking students to bring them on Feb. 8-9 so they can be quarantined in the classroom.  Students will pass out Valentines on Friday the 12th.  Teachers will staple the sack shut and parents will have the choice of when to open them.  (Just in case you would like to quarantine the Valentines at home). 

Feb. 15 – President’s Day – No School
