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.
