Fall Dance Festival


Orchard Hills held their annual Fall Dance Festival!  It was so much fun!  The Cougar Choir started the festival by singing the national anthem.  Thank you to those that came to watch and support us!  The students worked hard to prepare and it was awesome! 

Nursery Rhymes


The kindergarten classes have been learning Nursery Rhymes in class the last couple of weeks.  They did some fun activities with some Nursery Rhymes in class.  This week the students were able to share a favorite with their class.  Some favorites were:  Humpty Dumpty, Hickory Dickory Dock, 5 Little Pumpkins, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, 5 Little Monkeys, Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, and I'm a Little Teapot.  It was fun to see them share with their classes.  

Cougar Pride Winners

Students can receive Cougar Paws from their teachers for various reasons (being kind, helping, positive behavior, being a good friend, and many other ways).  When a child gets a Cougar Paw they take it to the office and their name is added to the Cougar Pride Board.  25 names were drawn out and those 25 had root beer floats!  Yay!  Lets fill that board again! 


For the last few weeks the second grade classes and the students in the library have learned about and watched the Life Cycle of a Monarch Butterflies.  The students would get so excited to watch the cycle and some were lucky enough to see as the butterflies came out of the chrysalis.
