SPARK CHANGE

So far, Park Hill Elementary has collected $986.10 for Spark Change!  Change will be collected in classroom boxes until November 30.  Student Leaders have set a goal of collecting $2,000.  If the school reaches that goal, Mr. Burdette will do something funny!  More importantly, with the change collected, non-profit organizations in Oceans and Natural Disasters will receive direct support from ALL change collected.  Over the holiday break, please encourage your friends, relatives, neighbors and coworkers to contribute their change to Spark Change!

CANNED FOOD COLLECTION

In our ongoing commitment to support the Greater Park Hill Foodbank, we will be collecting canned foods and dry goods in a round purple bin located in the cafeteria.

Crossing Guard Help

Thank you to all who have volunteered their time on school mornings and afternoons to man our crosswalks. We have a sign up ready for the month of December and would love to have you sign up.

Epic Parent’s Night Out

A huge thank you also to everyone who contributed to last week’s Parent’s Night Out.  Amy Hyde, Heath Weddle, and Amanda Griffin did an amazing job of planning and reformatting this event.  Many volunteers, including Beth & Matt Spohn, Natalie Love, McKenna Ogilvie’s Grandma, Tina Everett Volk, Shana Kirk, Karina Lara, and Rebecca White and her daughter, helped them in no small part.  Much appreciation also goes to Stephanie Magennis and her mother from Ceramics in the City for donating their time and art supplies.  All the efforts came together to create an evening of amazing fun for our kiddos and their parents!
