Friday Folder Bulletin, January 11, 2019


If you have a student that will be new to DPS next school year, in order to participate in Denver Public Schools online open enrollment, families may pre-enroll their student now!  After you complete the pre-enrollment process we will send you a student ID number so that you can then create a Parent Portal account.  Using Parent Portal is the best way to complete the Choice Process starting January 15, 2019.

Go HERE to complete your Pre-Enrollment Paperwork.  You will need to fill out the paperwork and return it to the school office with proof of birth and proof of address, such as a lease or a utility bill.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

One of the main goals of Physical Education is to encourage kids to be Fit for Life! Children need 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day to be healthy. Unfortunately, students do not get that opportunity at school every day, so they need to be active outside of school.  Also, children are developing habits now that can last a lifetime.

Each month (January to March), your child (1st to 5th grade) can bring home a Fit for Life calendar from PE. On the calendar, your child can keep a record of physical activities outside of school. They are able to fill in each day’s box with an activity.  There are outdoor and indoor physical activity ideas listed on the calendar, but any moderate to vigorous physical activity is great! 

The children are to return the calendar at the end of the month with their name, their teacher, and your signature.  Students who bring the calendar back completed with at least four activities each week will be members of the Fit for Life Club and get a small prize.

Thank you for helping your children at Park Hill become FIT for Life!

                                                                              Mrs. Horeis, Physical Education

Estimados padres y tutores legales:

Uno de los principales objetivos de la educación física es animar a los niños para que estén en forma para toda vida. Los niños necesitan 60 minutos diarios de actividad física de moderada a vigorosa para ser saludables. Desafortunadamente, los estudiantes no tienen esta oportunidad en la escuela todos los días, así que necesitan estar activos fuera de la escuela.  Además, desarrollan hábitos que perduran en el tiempo. 

Cada mes, su hijo llevará a casa un calendario sobre “En forma para toda la vida” de educación física. En el calendario, su hijo puede llevar un registro de las actividades físicas/deportivas que practica fuera de la escuela. Su hijo puede llenar una casilla del calendario a diario con una actividad.  En el calendario se indican actividades físicas en espacios interiores y exteriores, pero ¡realizar cualquier actividad física moderada o vigorosa es fabuloso!  

Los niños deben entregar el calendario al final del mes con su nombre, número de salón de clase y la firma del padre.  Los niños que traigan el calendario completo con al menos cuatro actividades cada semana pasarán a ser miembros del club “En forma para toda la vida” y ganarán un pequeño premio.

Gracias por apoyar a sus hijos en Park Hill para que estén en forma para toda la vida.

Sra. Horeis                                                                                           EducaciónFísica
