The Orchard School has only been back in session for a week and our middle school students are already busy serving various communities around the city.
Middle School Coordinator of Student Life & Leadership, Angie Brothers, is very proud of our courageous, compassionate citizens here at Orchard. “Last week was most definitely an example of our students’ willingness to serve others,” Angie said. “They worked hard, represented our community well, and made us proud.”

A note from Angie Brothers | Middle School Coordinator of Student Life & Leadership:
Middle school culminated its first week back to school with a Middle School Service Day. These days provide our students with the opportunity to get involved with and learn about various places within and outside of our community.
Upon graduating from Orchard, students earn a diploma that reads: “In recognition of academic success, demonstration of ethical character, and evidence of a willingness to serve others.”
Last week was most definitely an example of our students’ willingness to serve others. They worked hard, represented our community well, and made us proud!
Thank you to the 16 organizations that partnered with us to give our students this opportunity: Saint Vincent de Paul food pantry, John Boner Community Center, Spring Mill Meadows, Marquette Manor, Fay Biccard Glick Community Center food pantry, Down Syndrome Indiana, Meals on Wheels, Wheeler Mission Warehouse, Hooverwood, Holliday Park, Crooked Creek food pantry, Fletcher Place Community Center, Second Presbyterian food pantry, Hoosier Village, Project Linus and Orchard!
