Girls On The Run

We are so excited to start another season of Girls on the Run, but to make it happen, our team is in need of volunteer coaches.  As a coach, you will inspire girls to have a lifetime of self-respect and a healthy lifestyle through an innovative program that combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk race with a fun, health education lesson plan.  You must be available once a week from September 10th through November 12th.  If you are interested in this opportunity to empower young girls or have questions, please email me, site coordinator, Kitty Horeis at kitty_horeis@dpsk12.org or visit www.girlsontherunrockies.org or www.girlsontherun.org for more information.  Registration is early this year and starts August 13th at 9 am.  There is currently no registration online, so it is okay if you do not find it on the website now.  It will happen closer to August 13th.  Girls on the Run will be on Monday and Wednesday from 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm from September 10th to November 12th.  This program is separate from Park Hill’s regular enrichment programs and will begin before the enrichment handouts are emailed out.  Please do not let the cost prevent your girl from participating.  We can easily provide you with a scholarship.

Active Summer – From our PE teacher, Kitty Cupp Horeis

We know your kids were active this summer!  We want to honor your kids being physically active and taking care of their health!  The first bulletin board in the gym this year will be pictures of your child doing something active this summer; going on a hike, riding a bike, swimming, etc.  Please send a picture of your kid, no bigger than a 4″ by 6″ or it can even be printed on paper from a printer.  They can just bring their picture the first or 2nd day of their PE class.  Since we will have 710 students this year at Park Hill, there is no guarantee that you will get the picture returned to you, so make it something you can part with.  Also, this is a totally optional activity.  Kids love to see pictures of themselves so why not make it something that promotes being active?!

Student Activity Fees

This year the student activity fee for each student, ECE through 5th grade, is only $40 per student.  You may pay this fee with cash or check in the school office or with a credit or debit card in the PTSA school store at IHeartParkHill.com.  This fee pays for the cost of field trips which includes the cost of entrance fees, the yellow school bus, or the trip on RTD.

Park Hill School Family Handbook – 2018 – 2019

Please take time to read through the Park Hill School Family Handbook for the 2018-2019 School Year.  It contains a wealth of information about school hours, dress code, school lunches, attendance and absenteeism, our CSC, school conduct, enrichment, homework, field trips and excursions, PTSA, and information about our school nurse and medication at school.
