  • I apologize for the mulitple ratings.

    To whom it may concern:

    I attended this school 1st thru 3rd, came back 5th grade and graduated class of 1999. It was the year the school painted a new wildcat mural on the side building. I cherish this school and the staff. I thank you for providing such inspirational teachers. Mr. Smith with his cowboy hat, teaching us the "Square Dance." Ms. Tagawa I believe, she was a beautiful teacher. To all the teachers I had, and each class mate you where awesome! Forever Wildcat Pride- Madison Ornelas(Alcalde)

  • Dear Orchard Dale Elementary School: I was coming into town today and heard on the radio that you made office of the day. Glad to hear your still alive and well. I graduated from Orchard Dale I think in 1954. Then off to Hillvew and Cal Hi. It took me six years to finally graduate from LA State. Congratulations on making the Office of the day. Keep up the good work, Jerry Collins
