PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Orchard Elementary School

Home of the Owls.

Dear Orchard Family,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 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! 

This year we will begin our journey as an AVID school.  AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.  It is a program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college/career. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills.

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

Sincerely,

Anne Silva

Principal
