Principal's Message


Welcome to Orchard Elementary School

Home of the Owls.

Dear Orchard Family,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!   The Orchard staff and I are very excited to start the new school year.

Orchard Elementary School is a caring learning community, with excellent teachers who will offer a rigorous curriculum, engaged parental support, all the while challenging all of our students with high expectations for academic and social excellence.

Orchard Elementary is a STEAM school.  STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.  The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.  These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century! 

Thank you for your on-going support; please join our Parent Teacher Club and participate in many of our school events; activities; and fundraisers too!
