Good Morning Orem Elementary Families, 

We successfully completed our first week of school.  We are looking forward to seeing our Kindergarten students at Kindergarten Back to School night from 3:00pm – 5:00pm and then for their first day of school, tomorrow, August 24, 2021.

Please remember that the school doors open for breakfast at 8:45am.  We do not have supervision available for students before breakfast.  Please don’t send your student to school before the 8:45am time unless they are participating in ballroom dancing.

For those of you new to the district and/or school, and for those who would like some clarification about how to use Clever and other common apps at home that we use here at Orem.  Please see the following link:guardian tech tips site 

Here is some information regarding Ballroom from our ballroom teachers:

3rd-4th grade dancers,

We’ve only had six kids sign up so far this year for the introduction to ballroom class and we need at least fourteen kids for the class to carry.  We  plan on holding class this Wednesday and next Wednesday free for any 3rd or 4th graders who would like to try it.  Please enter through the northeast gym doors.

I will let you know after two weeks if we were able to get enough kids for the class to carry.  Please invite any friends, especially boys, who might be interested in trying it out.  If anyone is interested in being an in class parent helper please let me know.  We love parent help!  I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!

5th-6th grade dancers,

Ballroom begins tomorrow, Tuesday August 24th, at 8am.  Please enter through the North East gym doors.  The first two weeks are free to all so please invite friends!  We still need at least three more boys for the class to officially carry so please think of any boys you could invite.  If you are interested in coming to class as a parent helper please let me know.  We love parent help!

I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and dancing together.This is a reminder that if your child has been tested for COVID, please keep them at home until you get the results back. We want to keep everyone as healthy and safe as we can.

Thank you for your support you give to our teachers and your children.

Have a great week!
