Orchard Hill's fourth grade took a field trip to the Natural History Museum of Utah at the University of Utah in January. It was a field trip to remember as students learned about archeology, dinosaurs and excavation, paleontology, plate tectonics and earthquakes, Native Americans, Ancient civilizations, etc. The museum is put together like a Smithsonian and is one we will want to visit again and again. Once it was time to leave, teachers and chaperones even had a hard time getting students back onto the bus! So much fun!
Congratulations to Jenni Coon for recieving the Crystal Apple Award! It is so well-deserved!!
Jenni is an outstanding teacher and puts her whole heart into her work and students. She is here early every morning and works around the clock to make sure her students are getting the best possible education that she can give them. Jenni is always going above and beyond. She makes the curriculum enjoyable and her kids have something fun to look forward to each day.
We had a room full of Cougar Pride winners at the Rootbeer Float Party this week! 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!
Students at Orchard Hills enjoyed the Netsmart Assembly on Monday! The older and younger grades split up, and learned about how to be smart and safe online. They learned that the internet is a powerful tool that can be used for both good and bad, and that they have the power to make good choices while online. You might want to discuss with your child about the things they learned!
