Park Hill PTSA News:
Announcing the Snow Crew!
How would you like to help clear the snow and ice on the sidewalks around the school if we ever have winter weather again? We have a snow blower and a plow just waiting for volunteers (and some snow). The great thing about snow is that it usually doesn’t sneak up unannounced. So on mornings when there is snow and ice you would get a text asking if you are free to help clear the sidewalks. If we get a half a dozen volunteers, the chances are you would only be called into service once a year. Although you are welcome to call dibs on the snow blower every time. To be added to the call list, please contact Michelle Scott (email@example.com).
There is a table in Panther Cafe for your child to donate any milk they have not opened. If your child is thirsty, they are welcome to help themselves to any milk on the table.
Crossing Guard Help
Thank you to all who have volunteered their time on school mornings and afternoons to staff our crosswalks. We have a sign up ready for the month of December and we would love to have you sign up. It is fun and helps keep our families safe to and from school! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409084caba723a57-december.
