School Colors:

Chess Club- Students in grades 3-5 may participate in Chess Club. This club meets once per week to practice. Chess teaches problem-solving skills, visualization skills and planning strategies.

Battle of the Books- Students read challenging books and then use their knowledge to compete in a contest of comprehension with other schools from the district.

Invention Convention- This January and February, we will have representatives from Olde Orchard preparing to compete in the district Invention Convention. Students will research a famous inventor, look for an everyday problem and work to solve the problem by planning a new invention.

Student Leadership Team- A select group of 5th graders have the opportunity to display their leadership skills in this community building club. They help organize and carry out many activities for students across every grade.
