Good Morning OES Cubs!

Can you believe that we only have about 6 weeks of school left? I know you are all working so hard and we want these last few weeks to be as fun and filled with learning as possible. We have decided to have a theme for each week, and you can look on our Facebook page and see different teachers reading a story or doing some kind of activity. These will be posted or streamed live at 1:30pm each school day.

In addition to a story or activity, each Tuesday, we will post a riddle or brain teaser on our Facebook and Instagram pages. If you would like to participate, you can look for the “Tricky Tuesday Task”. Message or email me your answers. The first correct answer will receive a prize via email, snail mail or a social distancing drop off.

This week’s theme is “Reading is Everywhere!” This week we would like to hear what your favorite books are, what you are reading now and what is on your list to read in the future. We are looking for inspirational book reviews. Please post on our social media sights so we can share some of the great books that have been and are being read during this time.

We are also beginning the process of collecting library books and home reading books. If you have a library book at home, you can drop it off at the school. This Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the book deposit box will be out by where you pick up breakfast and lunch from 9:30am -11:00am. Beginning Thursday, the book deposit box will be in the front of the school. You will be able to drop off your books from 8:00am – 4:00pm this Thursday and Friday.

Let’s see how many library and home reading books we can gather during our “Reading is Everywhere” week.

Also, this week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) breakfast and lunches will be served from 9:30am – 11:am.

Beginning Thursday, April 23, 2020:

Grab & Go Days: Mondays & Thursdays

Mondays: You will receive the following meals: Monday lunch; Tuesday breakfast & lunch; Wednesday breakfast & lunch; and breakfast for Thursday.

Thursday: You will receive the following meals: Thursday lunch; Friday breakfast & lunch; and breakfast for Monday.

*Please only pick up meals for your student at one site.

Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

I will keep you updated with any information that comes up. If you have any questions, please let me know. Keep up the great work and have a wonderful week!

I suppose most of you have heard that our Governor has extended our soft school closure and we will be finishing off the school year as we have been doing. I’m sure more information will be coming out later this week, and I will keep you informed as the information comes through.

I know that many of our teachers, students and other staff members are feeling sad at not having the opportunity to have an official closure of our school year. I will be working with our staff so we can have a plan for a different closure for our school year. I know it won’t be the same, however, it will be memorable because it will be so different.

We have created a survey, and would like your input on how you feel this online schoolwork is working. Please click on the link below, and let us know your feedback. We are all trying our best to make sure our students are still receiving the best education.

I know that this online learning format can be overwhelming for families and students, and I want you to know that we are here for you and your children. I look forward to hearing your input.

Stay safe and healthy.

Best Regards,

Andrea Park

Happy April Fool’s Day!!!

Thanks to everyone who has liked our social media pages. It has been fun and a little scary reading books live on Facebook, but WOW it is so nice to be able to connect with some of you.

Tomorrow I will be posting a video of a science project and also adding to my happiness jar. I hope all of our students are thinking of things that make them happy. Like I said, it’s the people I do my activities that make me happy the most. We are fortunate to be able to spend time with our families and connect with so many others electronically during this social distancing time. I know it’s not the same, believe me when I say everyone at Orem Elementary is missing our students and families far beyond what words can say.

Today we had some teachers come and wrap yellow ribbons around our school yard. We stayed our 6ft apart, but oh, how we enjoyed talking to each other in person and seeing a few students walk by as they picked up their lunch.

This Friday, we will be doing a car parade around our school boundaries. Please see the link below for the route that we will take. I hope it’s nice weather, and I know that our teachers and I are looking forward to seeing as many of our students as we can.


Please check your mail – like the post office mail, each family was mailed a little something for our Lemon Drop Week. We mailed a lot of items all at once, but be on the watch for a little something.

Next week is Spring Break. Originally, April 6th was supposed to be a Snow Make Up day, but as of now, it is not. Spring Break will be from April 6th – 10th – no school work will be assigned for April 6th.

If your family still needs a Chromebook, please email our Computer Specialist: [email protected]. This Friday will be the last day that Chromebooks will be available to check out.

A reminder that our office hours are from 8:00am – 12:00pm. The school will be locked, but if you have any questions, you can call the school. If we are busy on another call, leave a message and we will get back to you.

Breakfast and lunch pick up is from 9:30am – 11:00am.

Have a great day!!!
