Our Mission

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.



Flyers from nonprofit groups that provide services, programs, and activities which benefit VUSD students and parents are posted on the Community Bulletin Board.  You can view a list of posted flyers by clicking the Bulletin Board List attachment below.  You can also view each individual flyer in the Index of Community Bulletin Board Items box below under Elementary Events, Secondary Events, and Parent/Community Resources.
