THANKSGIVING LUNCH WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!
Thank you to the volunteers who donated their time to help out in the Panther Café during the Park Hill Thanksgiving Lunch.  We served 843 turkey dinners which included 500+ PH students, 300+ adults and 20 non-students meals.  If we also consider those children and adults that brought in and ate their own lunch from home, over 1000 meals were eaten in our lunchroom in one day!  WOW!!

SCHOOLCHOICE – Pre-Enrollment
If you have a student that will be new to DPS next school year, in order to participate in Denver Public Schools Choice process, 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.

*Current Students DO NOT need to do this.

SHUTTERFLY STOREFRONT PROGRAM
Support Park Hill when you shop at Shutterfly!  Shutterfly Storefront is a fundraising program that Park Hill is able to take part in because of our partnership with Lifetouch.

With their help, we’ve created a custom online storefront where you can shop the extensive Shutterfly collection of photo books, gifts, premium stationery, keepsakes, home décor and so much more—and for every purchase made, Shutterfly will donate 8% to our organization.

It’s easy to support us:

  1. Visit our Shutterfly Storefront at: http://parkhillschool.shutterflystorefront.com/
  2. Click through to start shopping!
  3. Purchase thoughtful gifts and keepsakes for friends, family and especially yourself.
  4. That’s it! For every purchase made, 8% of the proceeds will go toward helping our organization.

It’s that easy. Plus, you can even use applicable Shutterfly discount codes to save on your entire order.

Please feel free to share this email with your friends, family and co-workers—the more orders we receive through our Storefront, the more our organization earns!
