  • ORCHARD PARK - Thursday March 22, 2018

    Today is World Water Day!! It is an international day to recognize the importance of water throughout our lives, and to gain a better understanding of how we can use and protect our most precious resource for all people. To celebrate and learn, we will be having assemblies today in the gym to learn more about just how lucky we are to live in Canada, and specifically in Burlington. Students from the eco club have been doing some learning about the importance of water and will be sharing their knowledge with the rest of you. They will also be coming around today to take pictures of the classes dressed in blue, drinking out of those reusable water bottles, and maybe even interview you about how important water! Classes will be called down at the start of periods 3 and 4.

    Read and relax will be at first break today for students in all grades, and senior read and relax will be cancelled this afternoon. Grade 6-8 students are welcome to come to  morning read and relax today.

    Senior Battle of the Books will meet in Mme Bourgeois’ room at second break today as the library is busy.

    Could any grade 6 students who still have their step challenge tracking forms please submit them to their teacher this morning. They will be collected at first break today.

    There will be a short athletic council meeting today at the second half of first break in the gym.

    Congratulations to the Senior Girls Basketball Team! The girls played an excellent game yesterday at Macmillan, it was a very close game and your OPP girls played some excellent defense to secure the win! Their next game is this Monday here at OPP against CH Norton. Come out and show your support for the last regular season game!

    There will no yoga today.

    Orchard Park remember to include others in your activities!


    Have a Thoughtful Thursday.

    Junior and senior battle of the books will meet together today at second break in the library. Senior battle will be cancelled tomorrow.


    Tomorrow is World Water Day - a day to honour our most precious resource! To celebrate we are encouraging everyone to wear blue and bring in their reusable water bottle. Orchard Park already does a tremendous job in using those water bottles, so we’d love to see every single student in the school wearing blue and drinking that wonderful life giving, thirst quenching water out of those reusable bottles tomorrow. Students from the eco club will be coming around to photograph all our water warriors.


    There will be a primary choir sign up and practice this morning in Mrs. Hayes' classroom first break today. Please wear your coat because you will go outside after.

    Orchard Park remember to fill buckets today!


    Have a Wonderful Wednesday.

    A HUGE THANK YOU to all students and teachers for supporting our goal of raising money towards the Heart and Stroke foundation in the Jump Rope for Heart event. As of this morning, we have raised $3,385.00! That is 67% towards our school goal and that doesn’t include any cash donations!! That is amazing!! Today we will celebrate all our hard work by jumping, skipping and having tons of fun together in the gym. Have a blast everyone! After March break we will let you know the final amount of money raised and students will be receiving their prizes. Stay tuned for those updates.

    A reminder to Wellness Ambassadors to come to the gym during second break and period 3 if you are are here.

    Great day on the slopes yesterday OPP!!! There were a few items left behind. If you lost a hat or gloves or a water bottle please come down to the office to claim them.

    Kayleigh Wong of 5/6 FI and Natalie Hall of 5-1 FI represented Orchard Park at the French Speaking Competition.  They competed against the top French students from schools from all across the board.  Kayleigh and Natalie kept their cool as they watched their competitors say their speeches and they both did an amazing speech in front of a jam-packed house of judges, parents, teachers and students.  Way to go Natalie and Kayleigh! You have made us very proud!
