Read-A-Thon

To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday, Orchard Hills Elementary had a school wide read-a-thon.  So fun to have parents and members of the community to come in and read with the students at school!

Kindergarten Field Trip

On March 8th the Orchard Hills Kindergartners went on their first field trip.  What an exciting event.  For most of them the most exciting thing is to ride the bus for the first time.  They went to the Scera in Orem and saw the play Rapunzel.  Afterwards they went to the park to eat lunch and play on the playground.  What a fun day!!

Discovery Gateway

Discovery Gateway came to our school to teach our fifth graders more about matter.  Laura taught the students about physical and chemical changes through a variety of experiments.  Afterwards, the students got to experiment themselves with a few different substances.  The students had a blast and learned a lot!
