Principal’s Message – April 9th

By Principal's Message

Good Afternoon OES Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break.  This month is pretty quiet. Our Celebration of Arts Assembly will be Monday, April 15, 2019. We will have performances from our school choir, orchestra and our ballroom team. We will also have a display of artwork from the students in our school.

Thanks to Mrs. Hancock, Mr. Winters and Mrs. Heaton, we are able to have a great representation of the arts in our after school programs.  If your child will be in 4th – 6th grade next year and is interested in ballroom, please see the following attachment.

Also, if your child is interested in any of these programs for next year and money is a concern, please let me know.  Our goal is to give students as many opportunities as possible.

I would also like to give a big thanks to Stephanie Scott and Sean Seastrand for organizing and getting our art program up and running.  Also, thank you to all of the parent volunteers who serve as art docents and help make this program a success.

We will celebrate our teachers during “Teacher Appreciation Week” the week of April 22nd – April 26th.

Please check the lost and found for anything your family may be missing.  We have a ton of jackets and this week is supposed to get cold.

Registration for 5th grade students for Clear Creek for this summer begins tomorrow.  If you are interested, please see the following attachment.

Thank you for all you do for your children.  Have a fabulous week!

Principal’s Message – February 25th

By Principal's Message

Good Afternoon OES Families

February is about over, and spring is on the way.

We have had some great things to celebrate this month.

  1. Congratulations on both level 1 and level 2 teams taking gold ribbons on Saturday and qualifying to go to BYU!

  2. Our Storytelling festival was very successful.  We would like to congratulate our winners: Eleanor Taggart and Addilyn Whimpy.  They will advance to the district Storytelling Festival in March.

Don’t forget, tonight is our Family Skate Night at Classic Skating from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.

Other than that, this is a quiet week.

Please check the lost and found for any lost jackets, coats, mittens or other items that may be missing.  Also, please remember that anything your child brings to school could get lost. This last month we have had cell phones lost/stolen.  If your child needs to bing a cell phone, the phone should be turned off while at school. Students are welcome to ask the office or their teacher to hold the phone during the day to make sure they are safe and then pick them up after school.

Students should not be using phones during school hours, if they need to make a call, they are welcome to use a school phone.  Cell phones are prohibited on the playground and cannot be used to take pictures or record anyone at school. If a student is found using their school phone in any of these ways, it will be taken away and a parent or guardian will need to come to the office to pick it up.  If a cell phone is used in this way at school, it infringes on the rights of other students. If you have any questions on this policy, please let me know and I can explain further.
