Good Morning OES Families,


This month is flying by!  I just wanted to remind you that our school spelling bee will be held this Friday, January 28, 2022 at 9:30am.  We will stream the spelling bee into classes so they can watch in their classroom.  Parents are invited to come to the gym.  Due to the increased number of COVID cases, we ask that only 2 people come from your family to watch your child participate.  This way we can safely spread out to avoid close contact.  


If you need another copy of the words, please see the attached link:

A few things to keep in mind, February 4, 2022 is a non-student school day.  


Parent Teacher Conferences will be held virtually, you will be receiving an email from your child’s teacher to sign up.  These conferences will be held February 2nd and 3rd, 2022 from 4:00pm – 7:30pm.


The following information is from Orem Rec:

This is a quiet week here at Orem as far as activities go.  However, our students are still working hard to earn their medals for our Math Olympiad.  Talk to your child’s teacher about how you can support your child to earn medals learning their math facts. 


I have included some information for our community.

Happy New Year OES Families,


Welcome back to school.  As we look forward to beginning school again, I would like to reassure you that we are still taking careful precautions with hand washing/sanitizing as well as our continued efforts to pay close attention to sanitize the school, paying special attention to touch point areas.


As of right now, masks are still optional.  I will let you know as soon as possible if there are any changes to the current COVID protocols that are already in place.  Please see the attached flyer concerning when to send or not send your child/children to school if they are exhibiting any signs of sickness.

The weather is really cold, and January is known as one of the coldest months in Utah.  Please make sure that your children dress warmly.  


Get Ready to help support our students learn their math facts with our school wide Orem Elementary Mathematic Olympics! 

Students can earn medals – Bronze, Silver or Gold by mastering math facts on their grade level.  Each grade will be a little different to differentiate the level of math facts required for that grade to master.  We will be rewarding classes each week based on the success of the class’ advancement of math fact knowledge.  All celebrations will be on Fridays.  


The following has some information concerning the happenings during this month:


January 10, 2022 – SCC Meeting in the Media Center @10:00am

January 17, 2022 – No School – Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 31, 2022 – PTA Meeting in the Media Center @10:00am

Have a great week!
