Farm Field Days

The second-grade classes went on their final field trip of the year and it was a fabulous one! We started the day off by touring Olson's Greenhouse in Salem. The kids enjoyed learning how the flowers grew and seeing all of the colorful arrangements. We ate lunch in Spanish Fork at a park and from there headed to Harward Farms in Springville. The kids had a blast seeing the animals and going from station to station learning all about farm life. It was a super day and we are grateful for so many willing parents to be apart of this special experience!

On March 8th the Orchard Hills Kindergartners went on their first field trip.  What an exciting event.  For most of them the most exciting thing is to ride the bus for the first time.  They went to the Scera in Orem and saw the play Rapunzel.  Afterwards they went to the park to eat lunch and play on the playground.  What a fun day!!
