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.
Tell us what you think! Community input is an important part of quality education for all VUSD students. Your feedback through a brief parent survey is greatly appreciated.

This one hour PARENTS ONLY education session (sorry, day-care is not available) will provide you with tried and true suggestions for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade. Also, further suggestions for relaying math concepts to your student, on-line resources, and hands-on activities meant to be done at home.
The focus of the meeting is not what is presented in class room (you all have a very good idea of that), but will focus on what you as a parent can use to help clarify the math concepts already learned/taught in the classroom for your student when they get stuck on certain math concepts.
We hope that you can attend the parent education Math session Wednesday, February 1st from 6:30-7:30pm in the MP Room. This parent education session will be presented by VUSD math consultant Pam Hutchinson who is affiliated UCD.
