Family Literacy Night

To kick off our Dr. Seuss Week Orchard Hills had their 2016 Family Literacy Night!  There were lots of break-out sessions, treats, and drawings for prizes.  The break-out sessions were:  Dr. Seuss Bingo, Book Walk, Make & Takes, Family Photo Booth, Dr. Seuss Carnival Games, and Read-a-Louds.  It was a lot of fun!  Thank you for those that came!  To get ready for Dr. Seuss Week each class is displaying something in the hall about a book by Dr. Seus.  Come take a walk around to see what everyone has done!

Kindergarten Science Projects

The kindergartners at Orchard Hills recently studied a unit about Science.  They learned that science is so many things.  Some of the students had the opportunity to do a science project and present to their class.  Some of the students did experiments and others learned about a specific thing in science to teach their class about.  We love science!

The sixth grade Service Committee designed and created a math game for
first graders. Afterwards the whole sixth grade played the game with
the first graders in order to practice place value skills.
