Can we just talk about how great our Reteach Technicians are?!

These ladies are so helpful to our students and teachers. They have been given many responsibilities this year so they stay super busy. They are really the backbone here. They keep things running smoothly for everyone and always with a cheerful attitude. We appreciate all of them! - Even the one in the middle awaiting a "real" pumpkin soon!

Our Students Honor Fallen Soldiers

Submitted by leann.wood on Fri, 09/24/2021 - 12:00

Orchard Hills’ art teacher, Jamie Watkin, and her fifth-grade students want to honor the thirteen fallen soldiers who were killed last month in Afghanistan. They spent two weeks making meaningful posters to show their respect for the service men and women in hopes that their art work will be seen by their family members left behind. Some of the students focused on Staff Sgt. Darin Taylor Hoover, the fallen Marine from Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Staff Sgt. Darin Taylor Hoover will be laid to rest today, Friday, September 24, 2021 in Arlington National Cemetery.
