Whether it's through band, orchestra, choir, drama or visual arts, our students are given choices when it comes to creative expression.
Starting in our early childhood classes, students are given an opportunity to speak in front of their peers. As our students get older, their audience grows! From the Kindergarten plays to our fourth grade productions to the seventh grade musicals, Orchard students become increasingly confident in expressing their thoughts in front of an audience.
At graduation, each eighth grade student gives a speech in front of the audience. It is always gratifying to see what confident, articulate students are students have become. Area high school principals routinely comment about the impressive public speaking abilities of Orchard graduates.
