Crazy Day

The Student Council at Orchard Hills decided to have a 'Crazy Day.'  Crazy anything.  Crazy hats, shoes, socks, hair, and clothes.  What a crazy day!!

Tales of Temples and Tombs

The sixth grade students presented "Tales of Temples and Tombs," Wednesday, January 23rd.  It was a bird's eye view of Ancient Egypt complete with mummies and pharaohs.  The students worked on the program for 2 months before it was performed.  Mr. Oyler made an appearance dressed as the famous King Tut.  Students made their own costumes.  It turned out to be a very fun, and successful performance.
