This week, many classes from Orchard Hills participated in writing letters and drawing pictures for our brave firefighters who work so hard to keep our community safe. We are so grateful for them!
Reflections is an awesome program our school takes part in every year, where students can submit original works of art based on a certain theme. This year's Reflections theme is "Heroes Around Me." Students may create an original work of art from six categories: visual arts, photography, literature, music composition, dance choreography, and film production. Entries should be turned in to the office by October 17th. See the video link below, the attached flyer, or the information pages in the office for more details. We can't wait to see your entries!
Today, fifth graders learned about and reflected on the events that occured on September 11th and the days that followed. They participated in class discussions, wrote letters to local police and firefighters, and made flag pins to help them remember the things they will learn about in American history this year, and to appreciate those who sacrificed on this day 17 years ago.
