Grandparents’ Day (Kindergarten – Grade 2) is Friday, April 5th

Friday, April 5th will be our Grandparents’ Day for students in Kindergarten – Grade 2.  Forms were sent home this week to be completed and returned with your child no later than April 1st.  On the form we will need the grandparent’s full legal name and complete birth date. ALL grandparent’s must have their ID with them to attend the visitation.

This visitation time is for grandparent’s only, no younger siblings will be permitted.

Visitation times are:
Kindergarten – 8:15 – 9:30 am
Grade 1 – 10 – 11:15 am
Grade 2 – 12:50 – 2:05 pm

Students are expected to remain in school the entire day and not leave at the end of their visitation time.

We look forward to sharing a snapshot of our day at Park Hills with the grandparents!


Kindergarten Registration – March 25th & 26th Help Needed

We are still in need of volunteers to help us with our Kindergarten Registration on Monday and Tuesday from 7:45 am – 3:45 pm. Tuesday may be a shorter day as we do not have appointments after 1 pm as of now.  Volunteers must have your clearances and be approved as a district volunteer.  If you are available and able to help please contact the office at 717-633-4880.

Thank you for considering to help us with our Kindergarten Registration.

One District, One Book – Fenway and Hattie

By now your child should have brought their Fenway and Hattie, One District, One Book home along with the Parent Packet. The packet includes a calendar so you know what chapters to read each night, a list of fun family activities, and there will be trivia each day at school. Students who complete one of the family activities and hand it in by April 15th will have their names entered for a chance at winning a gift card to an area bookstore.

There is also a One District, One Book website you can visit: to get information or look at books read in the past. The family packet is also posted below in Spanish and English if you need an extra one.

We hope you take time as a family to read Fenway and Hattie.
