The Summer Meal Program refers to the free meal program offered during summer months that provides nutritious meals to all children at no charge, regardless of income, race or religion.  Go to http://foodservices.dpsk12.org/summer-meal.php for a list of schools providing breakfast / lunch this summer.


We have many missing library books. Please help your child find their missing books and return them to our school library ASAP!  Thank you for your continued support!

Are you interested in coaching Girls on the Run?  We need coaches for the next fall in order to make this program work.  It is a great program for girls and very popular at Park Hill. If you want to find out more information about what is involved with coaching, contact Mrs. Horeis at kitty_horeis@dpsk12.org. It is only by volunteers that we are able to host this program at Park Hill.  If you do not know what Girls on the Run is, please take a moment to learn more about Our Program.

Program participants learn to:

  • Develop and improve competence
  • Feel confident in who they are
  • Develop strength of character
  • Respond to others and oneself with care and compassion
  • Create positive connections with peers and adults
  • Make meaningful contributions to community and society


It is time to start preparing for the 2018-2019 school year!  After careful consideration, we have decided to change our approach to ordering the Student School Supplies. Our Leadership team has worked to implement a very specific plan with our academic scheduling and organization, and the school supplies that students use play an important part in this.  For example, we intentionally use only red folders for reading and blue folders for math. This is part of our school-wide AVID plan.

So what does this mean for you as parents? We are still offering you the opportunity to buy your school supplies through the school and the PTSA, and strongly encourage you to do this.  It is my hope that all parents take advantage of this opportunity.  The cost for your student’s supplies will be $40.  This is significantly cheaper than doing your own shopping in August, and it saves you valuable time.  It will also ensure that students have the correct supplies (colored folders, expo markers, etc.) that each student will need in 2018-2019.  We will order bulk supplies this May from our suppliers, which is why the cost is much better than individual shopping.

We are asking that parents pay the $40 cost by May 31 (last day of school). The cost will increase to $45 after the May 31 deadline. You can purchase all your students’ supplies online using a credit card or electronic check at iheartparkhill.com. You can also pay by cash or check by returning the attached order form with your payment to the black PTSA mailbox in the front office by Ms. Ann.

·         Help ensure all children in Colorado have access to summer meals
One in six children in Colorado don’t have access to foods needed to thrive. Kids that miss out on proper nutrition during the summer are more likely to experience learning loss and develop long-term health consequences. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is about serving kids across the community free breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper all summer long when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. The SFSP provides free, nutritious meals to children 18 years of age and under at approved sites in areas with high concentrations of low-income children.

To find summer meal sites, visit kidsfoodfinder.org or text ‘Food’ or ‘Comida’ to 877-877.
