Parent Math Night with Greg Tang!

Have you ever wanted to learn more about how your child explores math and numbers in school? Have you ever wondered, why do they teach math differently than when I was in school?


This is an amazing opportunity for parents to learn from one of the same individuals who has provided professional development to our teachers and district leadership. He also provided a training session to parents last year. Please take an hour of your time to learn from Greg Tang. You'll learn about how we teach math at school AND how you can support your students at home.

The PTA is excited to kick off the second semester by organizing the Teacher Wish Tree! Teachers have put together the ultimate wish list of what they need over the next few months in their classrooms. The SignUp Genius will provide you not only your child's grade teachers but also Specials and Support teachers; we've even included a shopping link to make it extra easy. We ask that all items are brought to school by Friday, February 5th. Thank you!

Thank you,

Melyssa Blanchett

Nominate a Park Hill Star

Our employees are the reason we are so successful here in the Park Hill School District, and we would like to recognize them for all they do for our students.

That is why we present the Park Hill Star award once a month to a Pre-K or elementary teacher, a secondary teacher and a support employee. Anyone can nominate an employee for this award by using the form below. It asks you to share how your nominee demonstrates our district values of continuous improvement, high expectations, integrity, visionary leadership and student focus. You can also share how your nominee supports the goals in our district’s strategic plan.
