The Orchard Hill POWWER group is an important vehicle through which parents can be involved in school in meaningful ways. Being a member of POWWER allows parents to be involved in an organization that has a significant impact at Orchard Hill Elementary School.

POWWER raises funds to advance programs and facilities at the school. Our big annual fundraiser is the Fun Fair that is held in the spring. This year's date is to be announced.

Regular meetings are the third Tuesday of each month (check the school calendar for confirmation) at 7PM in the Library. All parents are invited and encouraged to attend meetings. Membership is $5 per family. For more information about Orchard Hill POWWER, please visit the pages linked to this site.

Fun Fair

Our Spring Fun Fair is the annual fundraiser for Orchard Hill Elementary School. It is held in the spring on a Friday evening, at the school site. Our school is converted into game booths for the night. Bring an appetite, because we have supper items for sale as well. The silent auction is also part of the evening. We raise over $10,000 annually to fund projects at our school. Some past uses of our funds have been: new playground equipment, new basketball backboards, gym makeover, climbing wall, video presentation systems in classrooms, new bike racks, teacher supplies, guided reading books to support curriculum, field trips, puppets and puppet stage, library book purchases, and support of Iowa Children's Choice books.

How can you help?

Every year each grade is responsible for something on the evening of the Fun Fair. A grade might sell Fun Fair game tickets or be in charge of the silent auction. Contact your room parent to volunteer to help out. We need family help to make it a successful night. Even bringing junk food for the junk food walk is help!
