Happy Friday Park Hill Families,

I am looking forward to seeing many of our families at the Auction tonight. It is always incredible the work our PTSA puts into this event and to see how the space gets transformed each year! If you’re able to make it tonight, please thank all of our amazing PTSA team that helped to put this event together over countless hours this year. I am always impressed (and grateful) for our community support here at Park Hill.

I hope everyone has a fun evening tonight. Please make sure to be safe and carpool if possible.

- Ken Burdette, Principal

Auction Update (tonight @6pm Denver Zoo)

For those looking to still register and attend tonight, we’d love to have you! We took down registration yesterday morning as we are basically at our 500 person capacity for our event space at the Zoo. We know there will be people who registered and don't end up attending so please plan to come to the Zoo and register with our volunteers at our auction registration table tomorrow. I'd recommend arriving around 5:50/5:55pm to finalize the second registration. Thank you, Liz and Courtney (Auction Co-Chair volunteers)

Report Cards

Second term grades are now available for your children through the Parent Portal link at Make sure to click on Term 2 to get the most current grades. Questions about specific grades should be directed to the appropriate teacher.
