Dear OES Families,

It is with heartfelt gratitude that I write this email.  For the last seven years, Orem Elementary is where I have called home.  I have learned so much and enjoyed every minute of working with our teachers, students and families.  You have all been so supportive, patient and above all, kind.

Together we have weathered (and are still weathering) through a pandemic.  Although there has been a lot of uncertainty, our community has rallied around each other to offer support.

Yesterday I found out that I have a new work assignment where I will be the new principal for Meadow Elementary in Lehi for the 2022-2023 school year.  Dr. Ryan Rocque will take my place as principal of Orem Elementary.

Until that time, I will continue to work diligently to ensure that our students and teachers have everything they need to finish a successful school year.

As I reflect on my time here at Orem, I do so with humble thanks to our community.  Thank you to everyone who provided guidance, support, encouragement and of course laughter.  I truly love and care for each and every one in our community, especially our students.  I will really miss this school and the relationships that we have grown.  I hope we will be able to keep in touch.

Thank you again, and many good wishes for everyone.

Best Regards,

Andrea Park

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:
