The construction is complete and fourth grade students will soon fill the four new classrooms and learning park at Willard Orchard Hills! We are excited to celebrate with the students, staff, and Orchard Hills community this awesome new learning space.
At Community Time on Monday, August 28th we will say "Thank You" to some of the people who made this addition possible as well as have the official "ribbon cutting" of the new space. Community members are welcome to join us from 8:40AM-9:00AM on the 28th to celebrate. If you have questions about this event, please contact Whitney at 742-2584.
The Willard Orchard Hills Elementary 4 classroom addition is coming to life! After months of construction, the finishing touchs are happening on the inside and outside of the addition. Today two of the four classroom teachers that will fill those rooms were beginning to move in bookshelves, tables, and chairs! The space is beginning to take shape into what students will experience in the fall. Fourth Grade teachers Lee Ann Peterson and Brittany Flowers wil be co-teaching in the flexible space. "We are so excited to utilize this space. It's incredible becuase everything in here provides flexibility," Lee Ann explains.
Stay tuned for information about a Grand Opening of the space soon!
Things are beginning to wind up at Willard Orchard Hills! We are currenlty running a few days ahead of schedule AND under budget. Over the next few weeks there will be paint on the walls and finishing touches throughout the new, flexible space. An open house will be held close to the beginning of the new school year, likely in August, to show the exciting new space and learning opportunities for Willard Orchard Hills kids. Photos of the almost completed space will be coming soon!
