PTA Updates – November 3, 2020

By PTA Updates No Comments

Dear OES Families,

The following message is from our PTA:

Orem Elementary Parents,

Greetings from the PTA! Just a quick email to keep you informed of some of our needs and plans.

First, we are in need of a few Executive Board members for next year. The wonderful Tamara Bahr has been Treasurer for the last 2 years and cannot fill a 3rd term. We need someone to take up this important position. We also need a President-Elect for next year, who would then be the President the following year. If you or anyone you know might be interested in one of these 2 positions, or in helping out in any way with PTA, please contact one of our Nominating Committee: Paige Gibson – [email protected], Delaina Whimpey – [email protected], or Adria Howse – [email protected].

Second, the PTA is excited to announce a fun new program run through the state – The Walk N Roll Challenge! This is an enjoyable way for the kids to get exercise and win cool prizes. Go to https://saferoutes.utah.gov/walk-n-roll/ to find out more.

Third, don’t forget to download the BoxTops App to help raise money for our school. The money raised goes straight to the teachers! It’s quick and easy, just scan your receipt every time you go to the store.

Don’t forget to go to https://oremelememtary.new.memberhub.store/store to buy OES merchandise and support the PTA.

Last but not least, since we can’t do the Grandparents and/or Special Friends lunch this year, on November 16 or 17 the kids will bring home postcards to send to their grandparent/special friend of choice. Some may be done in class, or partly done in class, but they will need to be finished and sent from home.

Thanks for all you do to help us help your amazing kids!

Brittany Przybyla, PTA Secretary

Good Afternoon OES Families,

This is a pretty quiet week, except for Friday when we have Halloween. Students can dress up if they would like. Please remember that no toy weapons are allowed. Teachers will be doing activities in their classrooms. We will have a virtual parade that we will send out in a link later that day. If your child would like to participate, please make sure your Skyward account is updated.

In order to update your Skyward account, please log into your Skyward account, then select:

Student Information Update

Select student

On the right hand side you will find student personal information release. There are 2 spots that need to be filled. The two spots that need to be checked are:

Directory Information Release

School and District Web/Social Media Release

This release will allow your student to participate in our Virtual Halloween Parade, as well as be in the yearbook.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

We have several students who bring their own phones to school. Many students choose to check their phones into the office, where we can make sure they are safe and not stolen. If your child decides to keep their phone with them, please remind them that the phones should be turned off. There are so many capabilities with smartphones, we need to ensure that no photos or videos are being taken on the playground for everyone’s privacy.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!

Good Morning OES Families,

This is a reminder from our PTA:

Today is our Spirit Night at Panda Express on Center in Orem. Eat there today, 10am-11pm and they will donate 20% to our Orem Elementary PTA. Be sure to show them the attached flyer or use the code for online ordering. Happy Eating!

Please see the attached flyer. You will need to show the paper version or a digital version if you go into the store. If you order online, you will need to mention the code that is on the flyer.

https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://community.pandaexpress.com/fundraiser/events/promotions/5c0daa4d-b795-e33c-5bdb-8a9169d36a94/en/landing__;!!P-Vt7t5jJSrPd9zQ!8UKVsBLkcaQ9ONxfJ05WrW5MpBfz0K3_zyIBRljIqO958-fEO4R4M9zbfhcQx927uSc$

We are not having our traditional Halloween parade like we usually do. However, we will have a virtual parade that will be sent out to parents through a link.

If you would like your child/children to participate, as well as be in the yearbook, you will have to update your Skyward account for your child/children. If you do not want your child to participate in the virtual parade, please let their teacher know.

In order to update your Skyward account, please log into your Skyward account, then select:

Student Information Update

Select student

On the right hand side you will find student personal information release.  There are 2 spots that need to be filled.  The two spots that need to be checked are:

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

One last reminder, please remind your child/children to bring their mask to school.  We have disposable masks at school in case of emergency, however, we have a very limited supply. A great idea is to have them keep an extra mask in their backpack, so in case they forget they always have a backup. 

Have a great weekend.
