The classes had many fun activities planned while they were there.  They found leaves and did leaf rubbings, found rocks and wrote their names on them,  did water experiments and of course got to play on the playground.  Thank you Mrs. Eckhardt, Mrs. Murphy and and all the other helpers that made this day so fun!

Mrs. Kesler is the new Art teacher at Orchard Hills.  She has an outdoor theme in her room and decided to have all the students in the school help her decorate her classroom by having each child paint or color a flower.  The older grades made theirs with watercolor pencils and painted them.  The younger grades colored a Van Gough inspired flower.  Isn't this beautiful!
