Ms. Roberts was recently recognized as a Nebo Hero by the Nebo School District.  This is Ms. Roberts first year teaching at Orchard Hills as a 3rd Grade teacher and the students love her.  Parent Shelby Barlow said  “She has had great communication regarding my student. By acting so quickly, she helped improve my student's experience and resolved an issue.”  Keep being the fantastic, hard working teacher that you are, Ms. Roberts.  We appreciate all you do to help our students grow!

One of our amazing EEC Paraeducators, Billie Shaw, was recently recognized as one of Nebo School District's Nebo Heroes.  EEC Teacher Nikki Metzger said the following:

“Billie shows kindness to all she interacts with. She always has a smile on her face. Her focus each minute is on what is best for students. Billie understands that each student is different and helps them feel valued.” 

Thank you Ms. Shaw for your dedication to the students at Orchard Hills.  We are lucky you have you!

We were lucky and had the Foothill Cloggers preform for our students again this year.  We love having these talented dancers visit Orchard Hills and we appreciate all of the hard work that goes into each performance.  Thank you Foothill Cloggers for a fantastic show!

Students are Safe

All students and faculty at Spanish Fork High are safe.  This was a false report of an active shooter at Spanish Fork High.  Police responded quickly and lock down protocol was immediately put into place.  Police swept the building and have deemed it safe.   
As a result your school was either on lockdown or lockout for a short period of time.

We appreciate the quick reaction of our local law enforcement and administration.

We love to celebrate hard work and effort at Orchard Hills.  These students passed off their Phonemic Awareness unit and are definitely on the "Road to Success".  Hard work and dedication pays off and we are proud of the work our students put in each and every day!

We had the opportunity to "Rock Our Socks" on March 21st in support of World Down Syndrome day.  Mrs. Craig, one of our amazing EEC teachers, said it perfectly:

"THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the support this day for World Down syndrome day!!! Having days to celebrate all of our amazing students is incredible! Being able to celebrate everyone’s unique difference is truly AMAZING!! Just because some looks different, talks different, walks different, ect. does not mean that you cannot be their friend or play with them!!

Professional Development Day - No School Wednesday, March 22, 2023!

You may ask, “What do the teachers do on a Teacher Professional Development Day when all the students have it off?” Well, Nebo teachers participate in training and collaboration to strive to do what is best for Nebo students.
