Friday Folder Bulletin, August 24, 2018


If your child is late, it is required that parents/guardians come into the office with your child to sign them in for the day.

Please call the main school phone number, 720-424-4910, to report an absence for the day letting us know your child’s name, classroom teacher, and reason for absence.  Also, call the school office if you are going to be more than 15 minutes late at the beginning of the school day. If your child is going to be away from school for more than a day, we need that information in writing turned into the office before you leave.


It is time to pay your students’ activity fee. This fee covers field trip transportation, entrance fees, speaker presentations at school, etc. The fee is $40 per student. You can pay with a credit or debit card in School Store.


For a limited time only, you can buy Park Hill School t-shirts ONLINE.  Orders will be delivered to school in September. Hurry! Do not miss your chance to show your Park Hill pride!

Trattoria Stella
Please join us for Restaurant Night Out at Trattoria Stella on Colfax (corner of Colfax and St. Paul) on Sunday, August 26 from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  Restaurant Night Out is an opportunity for Park Hill families to gather for good food while raising money for our school.

From 5 p.m. to close on August 26, Stella’s will donate 10% of all sales to Park Hill Elementary.  Funding from events like this helps us support our students in a number of different ways such as providing more support staff to decreasing the teacher / student ratio, learning tools and supplies, etc.  You are welcome to make a reservation (303.320.8635) ahead of time, or just walk in for family dinner night at Stella’s.

Nugg’s Ice Cream

Join us Wednesday, August 29 at Nugg’s Ice Cream from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  We all know it is still hot in August, and what better way to celebrate it being Wednesday than with delicious ice cream from Nugg’s? 15% of sales between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. will be donated back to Park Hill School.


Join us Friday, September 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the school for our annual Direct Giving Party.  This is your opportunity to donate money towards specific teacher’s wish list items for the 2018-19 school year. We also will be hosting our annual Park Hill Elementary Outdoor Movie Night, featuring more food trucks, bounce houses, music and a movie under the stars!


Denver Public Schools is proud to bring Destination Imagination to our school!  Destination Imagination is preparing Colorado’s kids to be the innovators of the future by combining the arts, sciences, and technology with creativity, teamwork, and problem solving.

In order to be successful and offer this opportunity to our students, we require 1-2 adult volunteers to manage a team. On-site and online training is available at all times!
