Orchard Hills Orchestra Performs


The Orchard Hills Orchestra has been working so hard.  They performed for the school today and they did such a good job!  They told us a little bit about what they have learned and played some songs for us.  They even taught some of their friends how to hold a bow.  Mrs. Drager is the orchestra teacher and she does a fabulous job.  Thank you Mrs. Drager!
