Solving Mysteries in Library!

These students used inference, observation, communication, and critical thinking skills to problem solve! They found clues around the library, considered the prime suspect profiles, and with their supporting evidence, determined who they thought was guilty and what the motive was. The prime suspects were Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstsalk), and the Frog Prince. Thanks for the fun activity, Mrs. Alexander! Ask your 3-6th grader who their investigative team thought was guilty!

Orchard Hills Students Learn About Village Drills

Last week, Orchard Hills students had the opportunity to learn about the Village Drill Project. The VIllage Drill is an organization based out of Utah, that builds drill wells in remote villages in Africa, South America, and Asia. It was so interesting to learn about people who don't have access to fresh, running water, and what others are doing to help. We learned about how lucky we are, and that we can give up little things to help others! If you are interested in learning more, visit https://villagedrill.com/ .

January Athlete of the Month - Caleb Ewell

Caleb is the Athlete of the Month because of his endurance while playing any game. Even when he is hurt, he will keep playing! Mrs. Darger has to pull Caleb away from games to sit down when he needs a break, other wise he would just play and play! He is such a good example because he is nice to everyone, and is a good helper with anything in gym. Everyone that knows Caleb likes him - he is a likable guy! Congratulations, Caleb! Way to ROCK it!

Cougar Pride Winners 12/17/2019

We had a room full of Cougar Pride winners at December's cookies and chocolate milk party! 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!
