On Thursday, November 30th, Friday, December 1st and Saturday December 2nd the Orchard Park Middle School will be presenting "Elf Jr., The Musical". This is a lighthearted show (made popular by the Will Farrell movie) about Buddy the Elf. He is a human who grows up with Santa and his Elves in the North Pole. As an adult he finds out that he's not really an Elf and goes on a quest to New York City to find his father. Unfortunately, his father is not the perfect father he imagined. Over the course of the show, Buddy musters all his Christmas spirit to get his dad off the naughty list, save Christmas...and even, fall in love! Tickets are currently on sale via www.showtix4u.com.
Orchard Park Middle School students held a “Storm of Generosity” from September 25th – 29th to benefit schools effected by hurricanes; Harvey, Irma and Maria. Throughout the week homerooms competed to raise the most money to benefit schools effected by the hurricanes. Students rallied around this cause and raised $3,000 in just one week! Executive Council students; Nolan Watson, Mia Popp, Jeremiah Burnett, Bowen Slotman, Ava Wawrzyniec and Ryan Heraty originally came up with the idea to have a fundraiser to benefit schools impacted by hurricane Harvey at their retreat over the summer. From that point the idea evolved as Irma and Maria impacted Florida and Puerto Rico. The Executive Council students planned and coordinated this effort with the help of advisors; Mrs. Kate Cullen, Mrs. Wendy Daniszewski and Mr. Dan Miller. The students created and posted flyers throughout the building, passed out envelopes to each homeroom, collected the envelopes from the homerooms and counted the funds that were raised. The students stayed after school on multiple occasions to make this fundraiser possible. The students hope to make a positive impact on those who have been negatively affected by the hurricanes.
