Uplift Utah Families (Free Tickets)

You are invited to the Uplift Utah Families parenting conference on May 4th and 5th.  The mission of Uplift is:

Our mission is to assist parents in gaining access to programs and information that will help them acquire the skills necessary to raise loving, responsible children. We believe that strong parent-child relationships are the key to providing children with the tools necessary to make safe and healthy choices in their lives, keeping them free of drugs, alcohol and exposure to pornography. Our program will include an original musical program, presented by elementary students to their parents, with future plans to have yearly conferences on the family and a website linking different programs and resources together throughout the state.

During the conference parents can attend workshops that will help them be better parents.

The first lady of Utah, Jeanette Herbert, would like to increase participation so she is making tickets available for free to our parents. You can find a link to the ticket here. Please feel free to print off as many as you need.

A packet has been created if you would like to print some of the information from the website and share it with others or if you prefer just a flyer you can get one here.

Yearbook Orders

The last day to order a yearbook is April 20th.  The cost is $20.00.  Checks should be made out to OHMS, not to the PTSA.

Yearbooks will be given to the 9th graders on May 30th at 1:30pm to the 7th and 8th graders on May 31st at 1:30pm.

Proposed 2012-2013 PTA Executive Board

Here is the proposed 2012-2013 PTA executive board for Oquirrh Hills Middle School. As you can see, we still need to fill two board positions: treasurer and president-elect. While these positions may sound overwhelming, they’re really not. There is plenty of training and assistance, and we would love to have someone help us out. If you would be willing to do either of these, please contact Kellene Adams at 801.455.8448 or Thanks!

Post edited to include Treasurer.
