PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE, NOVEMBER 30
Thank you for a great start to the 2022-2023 school year--we continue to work hard, be kind, and keep getting better! 

COMMUNITY TITLE I INFORMATION
Have you ever wondered what benefits our school receives from being designated as a Title I school? If so, please contact our principal, Ms. Worthington, to learn more. You can see an updated executive summary of our Title I plan HERE, an updated parent compact HERE, and an updated parent and family engagement policy HERE.

MORNING DROP OFF TIMES
We’ve noticed quite a few students coming to school really early in the mornings. Please remember that our school doesn’t provide student supervision until breakfast begins at 8:10 each morning. Teachers will begin outside supervision duties at 8:20 each morning, and students will lineup for class when the music starts playing at 8:37.

SCHOOL BREAKFAST TIMES
On September 26th, our cafeteria began serving breakfast from 8:10-8:30 Monday-Friday. We changed the time to better match our West Jordan City crossing guard times, which means better safety measures for our students. Students will continue entering through the south doors between the gym and cafeteria.

OQUIRRH PRESCHOOL
We’re excited to re-open our Family Learning Center preschool! Children who have turned 4 as of September 1, 2022 are welcome to join. Classes will be offered for free two days a week from 8:40-11:00. Each child must have an adult with them for each session in order to attend classes. Please see more information on THIS FLYER and call our office at 801-565-7474 to register.

JOB OPENINGS AT OQUIRRH
We are currently looking for several part-time hourly employees to work with our students. Please consider applying or sharing the information on THIS FLYER with people you know so we can work toward being fully staffed. Apply for positions at THIS LINK.

BULLYING PREVENTION SEMINAR RECORDING
Jordan School District recently sponsored a one hour bullying prevention seminar through the Cook Center. Several of our school staff members watched it and found it very useful. The seminar was focused on helping families understand bullying and how to support their children. A recording of the seminar is available for free at THIS LINK.

WELLNESS CENTER and MOVE THIS WORLD
You may have heard your student talk about Move This World. It’s a set of lessons and videos each of our classrooms use every morning and afternoon to help teach social emotional learning skills. The company has recently released a family version of the materials so you can have access to the ideas and videos at home too. See more information in the letter HERE.

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.

PTA
2022-23 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 call us with your questions at 801-565-7474 from 8:00-3:00, Monday through Friday.

-Shauna Worthington, Principal
