Summer School

Time is running out to sign up for Park Hill Summer School! The deadline to enroll is next Wednesday, May 6. When you sign up by the deadline, you’ll have access to transportation, just like during the school year.

Park Hill Summer School is a free, fun, caring place for your child to learn from June1 to July 2.

Students who will enter kindergarten through eighth grade in the fall will focus on academics in the morning and fun explorations in the afternoon.

In response to parent feedback, Park Hill Summer School will once again go for a full day and include transportation. You can also purchase meals for your child during summer school, just as you can during the school year.

Students who will enter kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall will enjoy summer school at one of the elementary schools. Elementary summer school times are 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday for all schools except Graden and Prairie Point, which are 8:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.

Students who will enter sixth grade in the fall will get an opportunity to experience middle school during summer school at Plaza. Students from throughout the district who will enter seventh and eighth grade in the fall will attend summer school at Lakeview. Middle school summer school times are 8:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Check out the Summer School page on the district website, under “Teaching and Learning,” for more information and to download another enrollment form.

Leader in Me

We would like your feedback about Leader in Me. Please complete the parent survey below by May 22nd.

Items Needed

We will soon be beginning our science unit on sound. While learning about sound, we would enjoy making homemade instruments. If you have any supplies that you think would be helpful in making an instrument that you would be willing to donate, we would really appreciate it! Examples are: tissue boxes, pop bottles, cans, paper towel or toilet paper rolls, etc. Please send any items to school with your child next week.
