There are so many people to thank for a very successful Winter Pageant this morning! Tracey Gallion’s work with our second graders to create the illustrations for Winter Dance created a truly meaningful experience for both students and our audience. Students learned their musical performances under the expert guidance of Darren Laura, Dustin Klein, Sally McSpadden, and Suellen Sharp–and we owe an extra special thank you to Suellen for leading the charge with her exceptional planning for the pageant performance!
We are incredibly grateful for the creative and tireless teachers, staff, and administrators whose work made it possible for us to stage Winter Pageant a day early and beat the winter storm: the show did indeed go on, and beautifully.
Thank you to our friends and families for your flexibility and support as we made the necessary changes to our schedule to ensure the safety of our community members with inclement weather on the way.
But most of all, thank you to our students, our Orchard Owls, who not only staged our first full winter pageant in three years but also the first winter pageant of Orchard’s second century! You bring joy and love to our hearts, today and every day.
All of us at Orchard wish you the very happiest of holidays and a happy and healthy new year.
