WELCOME TO PARK HILL ELEMENTARY
At Park Hill we are a community of learners.
- We listen carefully to what people say and are kind to each other.
- We stand up and take charge of our learning behavior.
- We honor our diversity by learning from each other.
We are the future and we like what we see!
School Performance Framework
Over the holiday break, you should have received a mailing from Denver Public Schools (DPS) regarding our school’s new School Performance Framework (SPF). As you will see in that mailing, as well as on the DPS website, Park Hill Elementary scored an overall rating of “Green – Meets Expectations.” The school was “Green” in all three primary categories – Academic Growth, Academic Status, and Parent & Student Satisfaction. According to PARCC and the Median Growth Percentile scores, our students are growing academically at a rate that puts us in the top 10% of all Denver elementary schools. We are exceptionally proud of the work that our students, staff, and the community continue to put in to make Park Hill such a great school and to prioritize the importance of ALL students excelling and learning.

Fit For Life
One of the main goals of Physical Education is to encourage kids to be Fit for Life! Children need 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day to be healthy. Unfortunately, students do not get that opportunity at school every day, so they need to be active outside of school. Also, children are developing habits now that can last a lifetime.
Each month, your child (1st to 5th grade) can bring home a Fit for Life calendar from PE. On the calendar, your child can keep a record of physical activities outside of school. They are able to fill in each day’s box with an activity. There are outdoor and indoor physical activity ideas listed on the calendar, but any moderate to vigorous physical activity is great!
The children are to return the calendar at the end of the month with their name, their room number, and your signature. Students who bring the calendar back completed with at least four activities each week will be members of the Fit for Life Club and get a small prize.
Thank you for helping your children at Park Hill become FIT for Life!!!
Tours run every Wednesday thereafter. Please call the main office at (720) 424-4910 to set up your appointment.
Meet your volunteer tour guide in the Main Office by 9:15 am. You will have the opportunity to see the school and get the inside scoop from a parent’s perspective.
