The Park Hill School District assigns students to their next year class through collaborative efforts of the current classroom teacher, counselor, assistant principal and principal. When applicable, special education teachers and/or intervention specialists also provide input.
Many factors are considered in the process of creating balanced classroom groups, including learning styles, gender balance, academic achievement level, behavior, study work habits, and peer relations.
Parent requests for specific classroom teachers are not part of our process. However, some parents like to offer input as to their children’s learning needs. If you would like, print this form, complete it, and return it to your child’s current classroom teacher.
Union Chapel partners with Fellowship of Kansas City Church!
Union Chapel is excited and grateful for the generosity of Fellowship KC Church. The members of this congregation have offered to provide items to Union Chapel’s Backsnack Program to supplement our Harvesters Back Snack Program. We appreciate Fellowship of KC’s compassion and interest in learning about the needs of our students and their families. We look forward to our partnership growing as it nourishes our school community by meeting the needs of our students so they can be successful learners.
In order to provide a safe, respectful, welcoming and caring environment, a team of UC staff collaborated to define and distinguish between conflict and bully behavior. Counselor class instruction has been dedicated to the introduction and explanation of new vocabulary: teasing, conflict, mean moments, and bullying. Currently, students are being made aware of the variety of processes for reporting incidents of conflict and/or bullying. As stated last month, the ‘investigation’ process will be defined as well. As our team finalizes reporting documents, it is important to note that sharing of information between student to teacher or home to school is paramount in the resolution of conflicts and the targeted intervention for bullying behaviors. Click here to check out a short article about reasons why children are hesitant to report mistreatment and bully behavior. Look for more information and updates coming your way in the next Gator Gab!
