The 2nd grade celebrated Stuffed Animal Day by dressing in pajamas and bringing their favorite stuffed animal to school. We graphed gummy bears and made rolls that looked like our stuffed animal. It was a super fun day!
The 5th graders at Orchard Hills participated in a simulation of the Underground Railroad in May. Conductors took the students from station to station until they reach safety in Canada. The students snuck quietly through the halls of the school trying not to get caught and sent back. At each safe house there were station masters who taught the students more about the Underground Railroad and did an activity with the students. It was a fun and educational activity that hopefully helped students learn and understand more about our country's history.

Sharilee McMullin exemplifies what a great teacher is all about. She has high expectations of herself and from the students in class. They know she expects them to do their best; and, consequently, they perform to the level of expectation. She knows that not all students are at the same level. She goes to great lengths to assess and determine the level of each student and helps assure student progress from their individual level of ability. She is exceptionally kind and considerate of students, parents, and staff.
