Oakridge School Honors School Nurse

We love our school nurse Cindy Gerow

May 7 was National School Nurses Day. Our school nurse Cindy Gerow was honored with a gift basket by the staff and cards with well wishes and a poster from the students. It is a bittersweet week, as Cindy will be retiring at the end of the school year. She has been an integral part of Oakridge since the doors opened in 2005. She not only cares for the students at Oakridge but is also responisble for their care plans as well as those of other special Ed students in the district. We wil miss Cindy and wish her well in her retirement.

National School Nurse Day Background: Since 1972, National School Nurse Day has been set aside to recognize school nurses.

Purpose: National School Nurse Day was established to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting.

Date: National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week and National Nurse Week is always May 6th through May 12th. (NSNA ,


Oakridge Students Prepare for Spanish Fork Stock Show

For the past few months four Oakridge students from Tasha Lewis' class have been working everyday with their pigs to prepare for the Spanish Fork Stock show. The students have mentors from Springville High School FFA who help them with their pigs.

 These four students will be showing their pigs on Wed and Thurs, April 30 and May 1  from 5-10 PM. The sale will be on Saturday, May 3rd at 10AM. 

They have learned how to walk, feed and handle their pigs. Not only have they learned how to handle the pigs, they have learned about patience and caring for the animals. Oakridge School is very proud of  Wesley Brailsford, Bailey Wall, Faith Sackett and Chase Sundet.

The evening began with customers previewing the items for auction. The pulled pork dinner donated my Smith's Grocery store in Payson, fed close to 100 people.  As auctioneer Ty Tingey began the bid-calling, the bidders began their quest for their favorite items. The evening culminated with almost every item sold and many happy bidders.
