December 19 2019 – School Christmas Sing – This is a school assembly for the students.

December 20, 2019 – Minimal Day

Early Birds:  8:00am – 11:30am

Later Gators: 9:15am – 12:45pm

Our lunch schedule will change to accommodate the schedule, but lunch and breakfast will be served on these days.

Orem Elementary is a caring community.  The last couple of years, teachers and staff have donated money and have been able to help families with Christmas.  Last year, between donations from our faculty and staff as well as donations from KSL’s quarters for Christmas, we were able to assist over 30 individual children from our school.  We will continue this tradition this year. If you would like to donate to help families in our school please contact the office.  

Have a great start of December!

Principal Message – November 14, 2019

Dear Parents,

We are hopeful that your student’s second-quarter/trimester has gotten off to a good start and will bring continued growth and progress in reaching their goals. The Alpine School District Community believes that a love for learning, a safe environment, connections to their teachers and peers along with parental involvement, are fundamental to building confidence and an overall state of well-being for students.

This time of year can be exciting and fun, but can sometimes bring about additional stress for students. This can be social/emotional stress, academic stress, or just the fact that it is a time of year when students are hit by illness and general exhaustion. All of these can impact a student’s health and well-being. Here are a few articles/resources that may be helpful as you have conversations with your students:

We are pleased to inform you that, through the support of the AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education) Grant, we are offering mental health screening nights for all students grades 3-12. Our next scheduled screener night will be held on November 20, 2019, at Deerfield Elementary (4353 W. Harvey Blvd. Cedar Hills). Here is additional information about the Screener Night.   

We also want you to be aware of an opportunity for your high school student(s) to see the play Every Brilliant Thing. Participating high schools will be sending home information pertaining to the play that is being performed during the months of January and February. There will be a public viewing of this play on January 9, 2020, at 7:00 PM at Orem High School. All parents are invited to attend and are welcome to bring students ages 14 and up (if the student will not be attending a performance at their school). The following link provides some additional information about the content and purpose of  Every Brilliant Thing. Please contact Rebecca Andreasen at [email protected] to secure your tickets. 

In honor of Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month, the One Voice Children’s Choir released  “One More Light”  The hope is that “awareness” will translate into a deeper sense of care for the people in our lives. Please enjoy and share this beautiful song.
