Notes from the Coyote Den

Welcome to Orchard Park School, home of the Coyotes! 

It is with great pleasure and honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Orchard Park School. I have been a vice principal in the Antioch Unified School District since 2019, and the vice principal at Orchard Park for the last 3 years. Prior to that, I was a teacher for 21 years in the Oakley Union Elementary School District where I taught at both the elementary and middle school levels.

We have such amazing students, staff, and families at Orchard Park.  I believe that the cooperation between home and school builds trust and self-esteem in students. I will continue to strive to build positive relationships within our community because I know the power that those relationships have on our students’ successes both emotionally and academically. It is my passion to support students’ social emotional health, inspire them to become lifelong learners, and ensure that they will have the skills and content they need to be civically engaged 21st century citizens.

I look forward to working together to continue to build that bridge of a home/school connection and to keep our students’ future achievements and academic growth the main focus.

Let's make this year our best by following our Coyote Code of being safe, respectful, and responsible.

Mrs. Gaudy
