8th Grade Reality Town Volunteers Needed: November 5

Reality Town is a fun educational program that gives realistic financial experience to our 8th grade students. Students choose an occupation based on their GPA, then they use their monthly salary and their family profile to make financial choices, such as buying a house, buying groceries, and paying for child care. The goal is to make smart financial choices!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We invite TMJH parents and adult members of our community to participate in Reality Town--it's so much fun! We need about 75 volunteers at each session, and also help with set up and tear down. A light breakfast and lunch are provided for volunteers. To sign up, go to Sign-up Genius or contact Mary Klismith at 435-645-5640 ext. 3222 or mklismith@pcschools.us.

Reality Town: November 5th
Session 1 is 8:15-10:45 (8th graders with 2nd lunch on Red days)
Session 2 is 11:15-1:30 (8th graders with 1st lunch on Red days)

Leaders 4 Life Conference: November 7-8

The 2nd Annual Leaders 4 Life Leadership Conference will be held at Park City High School on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8. Applications are currently available in EHMS, TMJH, and PCHS counseling offices for students in grades 6–12. The conference is an inspiring and life changing educational experience. Leaders 4 Life serves to educate and enlighten, teach students to celebrate their differences, protect one another, and to embrace love and friendship. By fostering leadership skills in youth, it provides them with tools to be good citizens and avoid the pitfalls of bullying and substance abuse. The two-day conference includes breakout sessions, an amazing keynote speaker, fun swag, and a great opportunity to meet other fun kids while learning some great life skills.

Parent PowerSchool and Canvas Logins

Parent PowerSchool and Canvas logins were mailed home the first week of September. Due to security concerns, we cannot provide login information over the phone, by email, or by fax. Login information can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool and Canvas logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.

Instructions for Creating Parent Canvas Accounts:

Spanish version

Based on a change with the Canvas PowerSchool Integration process, we are changing how Parent Observer Accounts work in Park City School District. Parents will now create their own account and link to all of their PCSD students. Provided below is a list of information each parent will need to have on hand and links to the instructions on creating the account and linking the students.

Please note: PCSD Employees wishing to observe their students within PCSD should NOT use their @pcschools.us email address. They should use a personal email address.
