Dear Oquirrh Hills Parents,
I can’t believe how fast the time is going this year; we’re already done with one quarter and a couple of weeks into a new one!
I wanted to give you a quick PTSA update—we’ve been involved in several things so far this year.
· We welcomed teachers back with a lunch, helped students feel welcome the first week of school, organized volunteers for several different activities, and provided dinner for teachers during Parent Teacher Conferences.
· The Book Fair was a great success as well—thanks to the many volunteers who helped us set up, run, and take down the fair. It’s great to see kids looking through books and sharing their love for reading.
· We just concluded our yearly Reflections—all projects were turned in the end of October. Reflections provides students with a unique opportunity to share their creative talents and skills, and we’re proud to be part of this inspiring PTA tradition.
· We’re celebrating our first Eagle of the Quarter winners—it’s a pleasure to work with OHMS students, and we’re looking forward to honoring this year’s first Eagles!
· We had some great support for Reality Town, a highlight for our 9th graders. This is the event that takes the most volunteers (approximately 50!), and we thank all of you wonderful parents who helped out!
· Thanks also to the many parents who volunteered to walk with students to Riverton High’s musical, “Hello, Dolly!” as well as those parents who are helping us with vision and hearing screening.
· Our first Bring Your Parent to School Day was on November 15—a great opportunity for you to come with your student to school and attend any or all classes. As always, parents seemed to enjoy the opportunity to see what their students do every day.
We also invite you to attend our monthly PTSA meeting—it’s held the first Thursday of every month at 11:30 in the board room at the school. Our December meeting will be on December 5.
Thank you all for your support, especially those of you who have joined PTSA (it’s not too late to join either!) and those who volunteer to help out in so many ways. We couldn’t do this without you!
OHMS PTSA President
