Welcome Back!

Dear Oquirrh Hills Middle School Families,

Welcome back to school! The summer flew by!

Just a quick reminder about Back-to-School Night tonight; please join us 5 p.m. at the school.

Also, as always, we are eagerly looking for volunteers! If you would like to get involved in your student’s education, the PTSA is a great way to do it. We have several activities planned throughout the year, and we couldn’t do any of them without out amazing volunteers. You don’t have to spend a lot of time; some activities only take an hour or two. Please consider sharing your time and talents with us. If you’d like to volunteer, you can call or e-mail our PTSA president, Kellene Ricks Adams at or 801-833-1521.

Also, please take a minute to vote on our PTSA budget. We are moving to online communication as much as possible, and our bylaws state that we must post the budget and allow parents to vote on it. You can view and vote on the budget in the post coming next.

We’d love to have you attend our meetings, where we discuss all the fun activities that we have planned, as well as the great things that are happening at OHMS. The meetings are as follows:

  • September 6, noon, OHMS conference room
  • October 4, noon, OHMS conference room
  • November 1, noon, OHMS conference room
  • December 6 noon, OHMS conference room
  • January 3, noon, OHMS conference room
  • February 7, noon, OHMS conference room
  • March 7, noon, OHMS conference room
  • April 4, noon, OHMS conference room
  • May meeting: TBD

 Finally, this blog is a great place to get important information, not just about PTSA, but about the activities your student is involved in and how you can be involved as well. Become a follower of the blog, and you’ll automatically be notified whenever new information is posted.

We look forward to seeing you tonight.
