Girls on the Run

Dear Park Hill parents,

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 12thIf you are interested in this opportunity to empower young girls or have questions please email me, site coordinator, Kitty Horeis at kitty_horeis@dpsk12.orgor visit www.girlsontherunrockies.org or www.girlsontherun.org for more information.  Registration is early this year. It starts August 13th at 9 am.  Girls on the Run will be on Monday and Wednesday from 2:45 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. 

Thank you,

Mrs. Horeis

Active Summer

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?!
