From HSA President
tDear Orchard School Families,

On behalf of the Orchard School Home and School Association, I welcome you to the 2017-2018 School year at Orchard Elementary School-proud home of Omni the Osprey!!!

The purpose of the HSA is to support the staff, parents and most importantly our students! The new HSA executive board has been busy exploring programs, events and opportunities aimed at enhancing our students experiences. Our efforts are able to fund activities such as; Author visits, Field trips, Cultural Arts Assemblies, International Night, Field Day, T.I.C.T.O.C. Arts education(To Introduce Culture To Our Children), Orchards Got Talent and more! In order to be successful, Orchard needs the support and involvement of our families, staff and business community! Please show your support by becoming a member of the Orchard Home and School Association!

Attend our HSA meetings!!! Meeting are on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 9:30am, immediately following our Community Building Assembly (CBA). At each meeting, there will be a “Spotlight on a grade”, committee reports, the president’s report, Mrs LaBarr will give the teachers report and Mrs Ferreri will give us the Principal’s Report.

Your participation could be that of a committee member, volunteer or attending an event. HSA functions are opportunities to meet parents, teachers and discuss issues that are on your mind, share experiences, ideas and concerns. You become part of a solution, making positive changes! The most important reason to be involved, is the impact you will make in your child’s life and educational experience!!!!

I am excited to begin this new school year and your participation and enthusiasm will help guarantee success!!!
