Monday Memo

March 19-23

Hello Parents,

We had such a great Leadership Day this past Tuesday!  Thank you to all of you who attended!  Our students were so excited to show off their leadership skills as well as participate in lessons and activities that teach about leadership.  We are continuing to learn about Synergy this month and the skill of valuing other people’s strengths and working together with a team to find solutions to problems.   Don’t forget to encourage your student to earn their Habit buttons!

We also had an awesome assembly to celebrate our students’ success with their read-a-thon!  Our students read over 1,000,000 minutes!  As a reward, Mrs. Gatenby and I were “egged” during our celebration assembly!  We are so proud of our students and their accomplishment!

School Safety:  We just want parents to be aware that Orem City Police Department has assigned an officer to every elementary school in Orem City!  So, if you see a patrol car outside of our school from time to time, don’t be alarmed as the officer is just walking around the school and stopping in to talk to some of the students (or to play the occasional game of basketball!).

Skyward Tutorial:  We have added a Skyward Tutorial to our website to help you navigate Skyward!  This is very helpful as you can check on your students’ progress and grades, as well as any end of year testing results, such as SAGE, will be available to parents through Skyward!  Feel free to contact the front office if you have any questions.


At Cherry Hill Elementary we DREAM BIG, and find success in each one of us, some way, every day.
