Message from the Principal

This time of year there seems to be holiday music everywhere. I always smile when I hear John Lennon’s “And So This Is Christmas”. It came out my Senior year in high school, not about sleigh bells and mistletoe but, rather, about peace and harmony among nations, groups, and individuals. Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished.

Nominations for the Northland Chamber of Commerce Excellence Awards

Please take a moment to nominate a staff member for the Excellence in Teaching and a staff member for the Excellence in Service to Education Awards. You can click the links below and there are descriptions below each for the criteria to nominate staff members. Please complete the nomination forms by Friday, January 13, 2023.

Excellence in Teaching Nomination form

Description: Please nominate a teacher, guidance counselor or librarian that you believe has gone above and beyond to help your student(s) be successful at PHHS.

Excellence in Service to Education Nomination form

Description: Please nominate an administrative assistant, food service staff member, custodian, teaching assistant, nurse, resource officer, or administrator that has provided exceptional service to parents, to students or on projects and has provided service beyond their regular duties.


PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. This is a framework that will be implemented in our building to teach students what the expected behaviors are in order to be successful at PHHS and beyond. Teachers have been attending training sessions to learn strategies to implement to help them work with students when students display an unexpected behavior as well as praise expected behaviors.

Our first step in this implementation was creating a matrix that has 3 expectations of students that we believe will help them be successful not only in PHHS but in society. Our 3 Expectations are for students to be responsible, respectful and resilient. Next semester, students will be taken through lessons during homeroom to teach each of the expected behaviors listed on the PHHS Matrix (see below). Teachers refer to this in order to reteach the expected behaviors when necessary.

Coffee with Dr. Kincheloe

TIME: 8:00 a.m.—9:00 a.m.

WHERE: PHHS Lobby Conference Room

Join Dr. Kincheloe in the lobby conference room for an informal discussion about Park Hill High School.

Drop by and share your thoughts and concerns. We’ll keep the coffee hot for you.
