Principal's Message


I am so excited to begin another wonderful year with my Wildcats!  Orchard Dale is a fantastic community of students, parents, and staff committed to education through collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. Orchard Dale is a place where students develop strong academic skills and become responsible, caring citizens ready to take on the world. We have high expectations of all of our students to be and do their best everyday. Our Wildcats are always ready to ROAR!

Orchard Dale is ready for another year devoted to learning and building confident students.  Together  with Orchard Dale’s amazing staff, I will work hard to continue the tradition of success established at Orchard Dale by focusing on character education, 21st Century Skills, using data to inform instruction, fostering a safe environment for children and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.  I encourage you to build a strong positive relationship with your child’s teacher, as they are your best resource.  I look forward to working with you as partners in your child’s education.
