GREATER PARK HILL FOOD BANK
This holiday season the Greater Park Hill Food Bank will be providing Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of families, including many from our own school community.

In our ongoing commitment to support the Greater Park Hill Foodbank, and to help them prepare for Thanksgiving, our plan is to host a food drive next week from November 12 – November 15. We will be asking each grade level to bring specific items to their classrooms (see flyer below for details).

Thank you in advance for your donations! 

A TURKEY AND GROCERIES FOR THANKSGIVING
If your family is in need of a turkey and some groceries for Thanksgiving this year, please fill out the form at the end of this bulletin.

PARK HILL NEIGHBORS FOR EQUITY IN EDUCATION
Park Hill Neighbors for Equity in Education is working on creating a “How to choose a school in Park Hill” page for our website.  One of the things we hope to share with perspective parents is what parents at each school love about their school.  Please take 30 seconds to tell us why you chose Park Hill Elementary, and what you love about it.

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.
