Park Hill T-Shirts

Park Hill T-shirts will be available before and after school on Thursday, December 2nd outside the cafeteria from approximately 8:05-8:35 am and 3:15-3:45 pm.  There are a limited number of t-shirts available. Most are in youth sizes, but there are a few adult t-shirts as well.  T-shirts will be $15, and proceeds will benefit the PTSA.  Cash, checks (made out to Park Hill PTSA), or Paypal will be accepted.  Cash and check, if possible, are preferred to reduce fees.  If there are additional shirts available after the sale, we will include those sizes in a future Panther Pages.
Thanks for your support!

PHE Families:

On behalf of Park Hill Elementary, I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. We will return back to school on Monday, November 29th.

Thank you for the canned and boxed food donations.  We took 3 truckloads full of food over to the Park Hill Food Bank this morning and will be put to use immediately.

Finally, your student may mention that there was a filming crew here today. We are producing a short informational video to put on our website for prospective/incoming parents. The company doing the work is one of our Park Hill parents, and we will not use any child’s face without a media release.

Have a great break!

Ken Burdette – Principal

Park Hill Parents:

Happy Friday!  Hope this message finds you well.  This week, I wanted to share some articles regarding the overall well-being of students across the nation.  While we are confident at PHE that our students will be able to overcome any learning loss related to the pandemic, we are noticing that socially and emotionally some of our students are having a hard time. This is normal and to be expected. Nonetheless, we thought it would be beneficial to share these articles and perspectives with parents. They are short reads, intended for those few free minutes we find in an average day.   Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday Park Hill Families:

I hope this message finds you in good health and doing well overall.  I am happy to report that our Covid numbers are way down in the school.  While we have a small handful of students on quarantine, these are believed to be due to positive exposures in their personal lives and not positive cases within our building. I strongly believe our protocols are working, and we are very fortunate to have had such good weather where we can continue eating our meals outside. I continue to ask all of us to be safe and cautious in our daily lives in an effort to keep our school healthy and open.

In addition, I also want to remind everyone that this weekend is Daylight Savings Time. We push our clocks back one hour.  Please be mindful of this come Monday morning.

Have a great weekend!

Ken Burdette – Principal

Greetings Park Hill Families:

I hope this message finds you all doing well. Just wanted to provide a few brief updates as you head into your weekend.

– A sincere thank you to our entire Park Hill school community for your generous support during our Direct Giving campaign. We were able to raise over $30,000 to directly support your child’s education this school year. In particular, our kindergarten classes alone brought in $9000. This is simply amazing and we thank you for your generosity and support.

– In other news, we have two positive cases of Covid currently recorded at our school. Both individuals are in fourth grade, and the families have been communicated with. This is a significant improvement from where we were just a few short weeks ago.

– We are looking for a para professional to support our primary grades. This position can be part time or full time. Please email if you are interested.

– Specifically for 4th grade, we are eliminating the game of football from our recess and break times. Our students are continuing to work on sportsmanship and we need a little more time with that before we can bring football back into the equation.
