But as more of my children started attending OES, I became more involved and realized the PTA's contributions to the school really were making a difference and I wanted to be part of it.

Orem Elementary has an awesome PTA. We help make OES the BEST!!! Some of the many programs we sponsor are yearbook, newsletter, after school programs, vision screening, ribbon week, family month, and story telling, just to name a few

Helping moms and dads are always needed to get these wonderful programs off the ground. If you want to help a little or a lot, we welcome you! Listed below are some positions we are trying to fill so we can keep our many wonderful programs going. If you see something you would like to help with, please call me (801-802-9492) or email me at

May PTA President's Message


Dear Parents and Friends of OES,

I can't believe that this is the final newsletter of the school year. How time has flown this year. We have had a great year and as I reflect on the school year I can't help but feel gratitude for all the people that help our children have a great experience here at Orem Elementary. First of all we have Principal Bolingbroke and the teachers and staff here at OES that really care about our kids and are working hard every day to make sure they have a good safe learning environment and a quality education. We are very lucky to have the great teachers that we have.

I also reflect on all of the many hours that you parents put in volunteering in the classroom and for the other PTA activities. We have had a lot of really fun activities this year that would not be possible without the help of volunteers. So thank you so much for all that you have done to help in any way this school year. Many hands make light work and there are truly many, many hands that help here at OES.

May will be a busy month with teacher appreciation, field day, beautification day, and 6th grade graduation. For Teacher appreciation we will be treating our teachers to lunch, breakfast and many other activities. We have a tradition of showering them with flowers on Wednesday that week. We will have flowers for sale before school and the teachers all have a vase in their classrooms. Feel free to bring a flower from home or buy one for $1 to give to your child’s teacher. This is a fun way to show them how much we love and appreciate them. I also suggest you have your child sit down some time that week a write a letter or draw a picture for their teacher. A heartfelt letter or picture is a treasure for a teacher. Watch for notes coming home for the other end of year activities.

Once again if anyone is looking to become more involved with the PTA Cathy Ambrose will be the president next year and would love some help. You can contact her at or call her at 801-802-9492. If you have any feedback for the PTA we will be sending out our annual assessment in May. Your feedback helps us improve and make things better in the future so please return them.

Once again thank you for your support this year and for all you have done to make OES a great place for our kids.

-Toni Carlson, PTA President

Hello Parents and Friends,

Happy April and Spring! It is hard to believe that we are almost done with another school year. We had a fun filled March. We had our storytelling assembly where the finalists told their stories for the whole school. We had our Moms & Muffins and our Classic Skate Night which were both huge successes. It is great to see families having fun together. We also finished up with the second session of our after school programs. Our chorus kids sang at a Utah Flash game and did a great job! We had our after school programs assembly and parent showcase and the kids showed off all of their talents.

April brings spring break and after that the school year seems to fly by. Hopefully we will get some nice weather and it will feel like spring!

We have quite a few big things to end the school year with that we will need help on. We have Beautification day coming up May 15th. This is a Saturday where we ask for families to come work on the outside of OES cleaning and planting flowers. Many hands make light work so mark your calendars and come join us in making OES more beautiful. Teacher appreciation is the week of May 10-14th. We will be sending home notes with the activities for the week. We will sell flowers and have many other fun things for the teachers. Then we will have 6th grade graduation and field day which we will need a lot of volunteers to help us on. So please watch for notes coming home and come get involved.

Our PTA meeting this month isn't until April 13th because of Spring Break so come join us if you can 9:30 room 206. Thank you for all of your support this year. Please e-mail me with any questions you may have

Toni Carlson
PTA President

Hello Parents and Friends,

It's hard to believe that it is already March and we only have a few more months of school left. February has come and gone and we had some fun events take place. We had our Dads and Donuts on the 18th and had record attendance. We ordered 49 dozen donuts and served them in the morning and at night. We ran out right at the end and had a few disappointed families. If you did not get a donut please e-mail me at and I will make sure you get some coupons for some donuts. It was great to see all of the Dads reading and enjoying the time with their children. I had one Dad come up to me and say that Dads and Donuts is their family’s favorite PTA activity of the whole year. Thanks for coming and a special thanks to Amy Chariton who planned and organized it.

We had a special Story Telling Assembly and the kids worked hard to get their stories ready. Kylie S. and Macy M. have been chosen to represent our school in the Timpanogos Story Telling Festival. Thank You Carolyn Blosil for setting all of this up for us. Good luck to all who participate.

Mark your Calendars... March will have some fun activities as well. Moms and Muffins will be held March 11th at 7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Please come and bring some books to read and enjoy a muffin with your child. You can read to your child or have them read to you. We also have another family skate night at Classic Skate in Orem from 5:30 until 8:30. Admission is free and open for the whole family.

I just had to turn in a report to the state PTA of all the volunteer hours at our school. I am amazed at all the parents and volunteers that spend their time at our school helping in so many ways. We have a lot of people that work behind the scenes volunteering their time with little or no recognition. I want to thank everyone that has helped in any way make our school better. Our teachers do such a fabulous job with the time and resources that they have. I just wanted to thank those that
help behind the scenes as well. A good example is the home reading program. We have many people that make that program work who come in and switch out books every day. We have a great community of parents and friends of OES. Everyone working together helps make our school great. So thank you again for all you do.

We are still looking for people that would like to help in the PTA next year. Please contact me if you are interested. We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 9:30 in room 206. Come join us if you are interested. We will be starting the plans for the end of the school year, things like field day and 6th grade graduation and would love more helpers. Have a great March.

-Toni Carlson. PTA President
