Gobble Off 2018!

Kathy Losee

We had our annual Orchard Hills Gobble Off today! It is such a fun tradition, and is always very entertaining. :) One participant from every class was picked to gobble in the Gobble Off. They competed with their grade level, and the winner of that round went on to the K-2nd grade and 3rd-6th grade competitions. Each class winner won a toy turkey, grade level winners received a trophy, and the 2 overall winners won a gift card for a turkey! Good job to all who participated! We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

2nd Grade Community Field Trip

Kathy Kelley, Shar McMullin

On Thursday, Nov. 15th, our 2nd grade classes visited the Santaquin Police Station, Fire Station, Library, America First Credit Union, and the Santaquin Chieftain Museum to learn about our community.  We ended our field trip by performing our Thanksgiving program for the Santaquin Senior Citizens luncheon.  We are glad to be a part of our community and it was fun to learn so many great things about the people here.  Thanks to all who helped!

2nd Grade Thanksgiving Program


The second grade classes did a Thanksgiving Program for the school and for their parents today! They sang songs about turkeys, being thankful, and getting together with family and friends. Each class also recited a poem. Great job, second graders!

6th Grade Wax Museum

Jamie Call, Stephanie Wood

Last week, our 6th graders presented their very own wax museum for the school and parents!  Each student researched someone famous in history that had a positive influence on the world, and wrote bio-riddles and created presentation boards. On Thursday, they dressed up as the person they researched and presented everything they learned for the school and parents. Six students had the opportunity to share their bio-riddle with the parents: Mackenzie Christensen, Kaleb DeGraffenried, Averie Roundy, Waylon Francom, Miles Broadbent, and Gracie Allen.
