Celebrating What's Right - The Orchard School

I've grown tired of hearing myself complain about things that bug me. It's about time I balance that and earn some karma points. I want to celebrate what's right with the world - at least my little corner of it.

Let me start with The Orchard School. I first "met" Orchard back in 2001. Curious what it was about, I made an appointment for a tour. My husband and I walked into a buzzing-with-joyful-life school. Each step we took with our tour guide was one more step toward a love affair that has lasted to this day. We saw smiling faces. We heard laughter. We sensed confidence. We saw remarkable writing and art hanging on the walls. We saw happy children passing playfully and peacefully in the halls. We felt a genuine joy and love for learning that made us both want to be kids again.

In my own words, Orchard is a progressive school dedicated to diversity (of learning styles, socioeconomically, etc), dignity, education of the whole child and creation of good citizens.

If you don't believe me, then go see for yourself. Orchard is holding an open house on October 19th from 1:00 to 3:00. Call them at 317.251.9253 for more information. Or get in touch with me. I'd love to talk more about The Orchard School.
