Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
It’s Oquirrh Fest once again! OHMS is pleased to announce that our charity this year is the Nixon Strong Foundation. You can find out more at http://https://nixonstrongfoundation.org/ This is an organization dedicated to helping children with cancer and their families. While they can help with fun things like making memories for these children, they also help with expenses from medical bills and funerals. Our students are excited to help.
Thank you so much for your support yesterday at our first “restaurant night”. The Swig store on 114th was very busy since Oquirrh Fest supporters responded to the call. Thank you! Our next confirmed restaurant night is at Zupa’s in Mountain View Village on December 19 from 5-9. More information to come!
Our musical theater class is presenting Elf – the Musical on Thursday, November 30 at 7:00 p.m. Our students will be selling concessions to raise funds to help us meet our goal of $20,000. Throughout this season, we will have concerts, an art show, and other celebrations of our students’ accomplishments. We hope that you will attend and support your performing arts students, and perhaps purchase a cookie or two as well.
For the next three weekends, our students will be caroling at Peterson’s Supermarket. Friday, December 1 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. and again on Saturday morning from 10:00-12:00 noon, students will be caroling for cash. Please stop by and support young people who are learning that they have the power to make a difference to someone who truly needs them.
Family Fun Night is from 6-8 on December 5. Admission is $20 per family or $7 per person. Kids 3 and under get in free. All activities are free. Our very dedicated Leadership TA students will be selling concessions and there will be a silent auction as well. This family event is always a lot of fun for everyone involved. We would love to see you and your family here that evening.
Midterms are on Friday, December 1. With all the interruptions of holidays, vacations and even illnesses, the second quarter can be difficult for many students. Please keep an eye on your student’s grades on Skyward and be sure to reach out to teachers if you have concerns or questions. We want to partner with you to help your child learn and prepare for success in life.
Thank you for monitoring your child’s social media accounts, cell phone apps and pictures. Although cell phones will always cause drama, your support has made our job of protecting instructional time from distractions so much more doable. Our sincere appreciation.
Just a reminder that the bus lane is used by buses throughout the day. Please Park in the parking lot when you visit our school.
This has been an exciting week as we have started our fund-raising efforts for the Nixon Strong foundation. Oquirrh Fest tends to bring out the best in our students; they are enthusiastic and generous, but they also grow to be more united as a student body. It helps reinforce my belief that we have some of the most outstanding students in the district. I am very pleased with how well they are turning out.
