Career Share for Guys and Gals Update and Program Change!

Our Eagle Events Team is finalizing the details of our Career Share focus for the 2017-2018 school year. Career Share classroom visits allow our eagles to learn more about the jobs that adults have in our English Landing community and introduces them to careers they might not even know exist.

This year we would like to have EVERY student have at least ONE parent or family member spend time in his/her classroom in a Career Share visit. We started the Guys and Gals approach years ago and feel that it isn't about the gender separation but instead about EVERY student having a parent or family member visit the classroom sometime during the school day.

At the end of the school year, we will host a DONUT celebration because we know for some eagles (young and old) the DONUT treat was a key component to our Career Share program as it gave us all a chance to spend some additional time together before the school day started. Instead of having this DONUT celebration in the gym, we will host this in every grade level hallway so ALL eagles will receive a morning treat. Family members will be encouraged to join us in this Career Share Celebration in May.

The Eagle Events Team will have additional communication regarding our Career Share sign up opportunities for classroom visits AND the Donut Celebration at the conclusion of the school year in the upcoming week.

Save the Date! Meeting in Riverside

Student Supervision at High School Athletic Events

Dear Park Hill School District Families,

In order to make sure our district athletic events are safe and enjoyable for everyone, we have a new requirement.

Any elementary or middle-school students who attend our high-school athletic events at Park Hill High School and Park Hill South High School must have an adult with them in order to enter our games. The adults must sit with the students and supervise them throughout the event.

Thank you for helping us make sure our games are safe, positive places for our students, staff and community members.
