The mission of Orchard Elementary School is to create a safe and supportive environment that emphasizes self-esteem and the mastery of academic and life skills to help students become life-long learners. Goals include cultivating each child’s intellectual capabilities, their awareness of moral, cultural and human values, as well as multicultural differences and being environmentally responsible. It is a strongly held belief by the Orchard School community that teaching and learning are the responsibilities of students, staff, and parents working collaboratively.

Social Media class for parents: Wednesday, June 1st, 6:30 PM at Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Rd. Vacaville in the Board room.
VUSD and the Vacaville Police Department are hosting a free class to help parents learn about current trends, aps, devices capabilities and dangers that face our kids.
RECENT NEWS: A New York state man was arrested by federal authorities following an investigation by Vacaville police that included a then 12-year-old victim in Vacaville. Homeland Security agents arrested Robert J. Garneau, 21, of Warwick, New York on charges of online child exploitation.
As social media trends change day to day and technology advancements do the same, keeping up with devices and social media can be challenging for parents. Even parents who are up on social media might be surprised about what aps are now available and what kids can be exposed to.
