Cougar Pride Winners 4/10/2019

We had a room full of Cougar Pride winners at the Rootbeer Float Party today! Students can receive Cougar Paws from their teachers by being kind, helping, showing positive behavior, being a good friend, and through 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. These kids were chosen from the board to come to the party. We are so proud of our cougars and the PAWSitive choices they make! We can't wait for our next party!

For the month of March, Orchard Hills students participated in a reading contest, and one winner was picked from each class to participate in the Basketball Shoot Off for Reading!  Each winner shot baskets to win up to $7. They were also able to get a little help from the Payson High Basketball Team. Thanks so much for coming, guys! We had a great time cheering on our friends, and we sure have enjoyed our month of celebrating reading!

Dissecting Owl Pellets in Mrs. Kelley's Class

Mrs. Kelley's class has been learning about animal adaptations.  We talked about an owl's food chain and learned that all animals depend on plants.  We learned that owls have an organ called a gizzard where the hard parts of their food that they cannot digest  are stored, then regurgitated.  We dissected these "pellets" to discover the bones of animals that the owls had eaten.  It was so much fun!  We were able to match the bones we found with a diagram of a vole, which a big part of an owl's diet.
