A day of unity

The annual Moreland Hills Elementary School Unity Day was held on June 5 inside the school. Kindergarten through fifth-grade students enjoyed inflatables, a “Blown Away by Pride Powers” beach ball game, popsicles provided by the Orange PTA and a unifying concert by reggae singer Carlos Jones and the Plus Band. This end-of-the-year event emphasizes the importance of teamwork, good sportsmanship and modeling the MHS Pride Powers of safety, respect, responsibility and engagement.

Donations to Red Cross Blood Drive

Orange High School collected 33 units of blood from 38 donors at its Red Cross Blood Drive on June 6. This included eight first time donors. According to the Red Cross, these 33 units will be used to help save up to 99 lives in the immediate future and will help them to prepare for a summer deficit.
