Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

I mentioned before that my emails would start to have a lot of information in them. This one is proof of that. Please note dates and events that will impact your family. It’s fun this time of year, but it is very busy.

Jordan School District Health and Wellness Department will be presenting summer “Surviving and Thriving Workshops”. There is no cost to participants. These workshops will focus on providing teens with coping skills and fun, positive interactions with peers. Please see the attached flyer for more information and a link for registration. 

If you haven’t taken a look lately, it’s a good idea to check out your students’ Skyward account for lunch balances, fees and fines. Please help us clear any of these that may be on your child’s account. All fees, fines and negative lunch balances follow students wherever they may attend in Jordan School District. Thank you for your help.

Tuesday, April 23, OHMS will be hosting the Unified Sports Bocce Ball tournament. This will impact traffic, parking and other activities throughout the day. We are so excited to invite Unified Sports teams from across the valley and their supporters to this amazing event. Please note that the bus lane will be full of buses and the only available parking will be in the North Parking lot unless you get here very early. We are expecting hundreds of guests. It will be epic.

Our canned food drive is ON! From now until April 25, our TA classes are collecting food for the Utah Food Bank. The competition is intense and we are hoping to collect a literal ton (or more!) of food. This is part of our celebration of SOAR week.

 Here are some of the activities that are planned:

Monday – Rivalry Day. It’s BYU vs Utah. Put your donations in the bin of the college you support. Winner announced at the end of the day.

Tuesday – Teacher-Student Swap Day. Students dress like teachers and teachers dress like students.

Wednesday – TA Wars. TA’s pick a theme and the TA with the most participation wins homework passes.

Thursday – Barbie and Ken Day. Bins will be labeled for each and the “doll” with the most donations will be announced at the end of the day.

Friday – Pajama day. Final counts will be announced as soon as possible because there are prizes and bragging rights at stake here.

It’s already time to start thinking about Midterm Grades. Midterms are April 26. Be sure to check your students’ grades often – they can change very quickly. If you have questions or concerns, it’s better to ask teachers sooner rather than later.

Hopefully, you have received the email from our School Community Council about end-of-year testing. Mark your calendars for May 2 and 3 if you have ninth graders. That’s the date of the Aspire Test. RISE testing is May 14, 15 and 16 for all 7th and 8th grade students. I’ll send the bell schedule and other information again in a couple weeks. In addition, all core subjects and many electives will be holding end-of-course tests the week of May 20-24. It’s so important for your student to be here.

If you really want to help your students do better in school and on tests, you may want to consider letting them walk to school if you live within walking distance. Exercise can boost brain function and improve concentration. Exercise, a balanced breakfast and good sleep hygiene can help any student do better in school and on end-of-year tests.

As I visit classrooms, I can’t help but get excited knowing that our students are very capable. As they take us up on the invitation to learn and prepare, I am certain that they can do well on their upcoming tests, and in life as well.

Kindest regards,

Donna C. Hunter, Principal
