Social Worker News

I want to encourage parents to reach out for any assistance you or your student might need during the school year.

Below you will find the link for the Confidential Resource Checklist. It has both a variety of resources I can help with and a place for feedback about emotional support your student might need. I have also included my contact information so please feel free to contact me any time during the year.

Do You Speak A Different Language?

We partner with Argo Telephonic Translation Services to help us better communicate with families that speak a language other than English. We can set up an interpreter during parent conferences in addition to using a translator during phone calls. If you, or someone you know would benefit from this service, please let your child's teacher know, or contact Mrs. Renton.

Nominate a Staff Member for the Park Hill STAR Award

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.
