Thank you for a great start to the school year!
Tonight, Friday, September 17th, the PTA will be sponsoring a Family Carnival and Movie Night on our back field! Tickets for carnival games and concessions will be $1 each. Games and concessions will begin at 6:00 and end at dusk. The movie, Boss Baby: Family Business, will be free for everyone and will start at dusk. You’re welcome to bring chairs and blankets to save your movie seat as we join together for a fun community event that will help keep our PTA activities and events going this school year. See more information on an updated flyer HERE. Pre-order carnival tickets HERE.
ANNUAL SKYWARD RE-REGISTRATION
If your student is not new to Oquirrh this year, please take time to check your students' information on Skyward and get them re-registered for this school year. Please log into Skyward Family Access to get this important task done. If you need computer access or assistance using Skyward Family Access, please visit our front office. We have a computer set up just for this purpose. Our secretaries can also send you an account reset link if you’ve forgotten your username and password. Just give us a call at 801-565-7474, and we’ll be happy to help.
As communicated in the Jordan District’s Skylert message, face masks are not required in Jordan School District schools or offices. Individual choices regarding masks should be respected. Teachers will be creating a culture in their classroom where either choice is acceptable. State and County Health Department recommendations regarding masks can be found HERE. We encourage families to study the recommendations and choose what they believe is best.

WELLNESS CENTER and MOVE THIS WORLD
Oquirrh opened a fully-staffed Wellness Center in August 2019! Watch a short introduction video HERE to see more about how it works. A 10-minute visit to the Wellness Center gives all students an opportunity to regroup, recharge, and proactively manage their emotions in healthy ways. We understand that learning can be hard work and sometimes the social-emotional part of a child's day can be especially challenging. A trip to the Wellness Center can provide needed support and a safe place for students to prepare to get back to work in their job as students and friends in our school community. Check out THIS WEBSITE to see more information about Move this World, a program we use to help our students learn how to develop emotional intelligence for long-term wellbeing.
TITLE I INFORMATION
It’s time to send out our annual information about our school’s Title I plan and what the extra funding means at our school. Please see more information HERE.
2021-22 PTA Memberships are available for $5 in the school office or by electronic membership payments. This is a great way to help support our school to help fund field trips and extra curricular activities for our students.
Thank you for your continued support. Please let us know what questions you may have by calling our office at 801-565-7474 from 8:00-3:00, Monday-Friday.
