Bright Futures Launches at Park City High School

SUMMER ACADEMY BEGINS AUGUST 1, 2016

The NEW Bright Futures program will dramatically increase the number of first generation college students enrolling in -- and graduating from -- college. Did you know that nationally only 25% of first generation students make it to college graduation? We can change those odds for our Park City kids!

Bright Futures will address the unique challenges these students face as they prepare for, apply to, attend and complete college. Twenty 10th graders will kick off the program this August 1 - 5 with an intensive Summer Academy. Students will then work together throughout the next several years to develop self-advocacy skills and build a peer-to-peer support system in high school, which will continue to provide support while they move through college. The program is open to any student who wants to join.

If you are interested in learning more about the program, contact Coordinator Rebeca Gonzales: rgonzalez@pcschools.us.

Bright Futures is supported by Park City Education Foundation, Park City Community Foundation, Park City Municipal, and individual donors who are investing in the future of these students and Park City. If you are interested in supporting this program please contact Abby McNulty at PCEF, amcnulty@pcschools.us.

EPA Work - Kearns Campus

PHASE ONE
Begins Monday, July 25
- Starts at Comstock & works to the east side of Treasure Mountain Jr. High
- Remove current cap
- Remove top 6 inches of soil (to be trucked offsite)
- Replace with new topsoil
- Refurbish landscaping
- Expected to be compete by first week in August

PHASE TWO
Scheduled to begin August 8 (completion expected by August 21)
- Starts at Kearns and stops just short of the wetlands
- Includes recreational fields and area around the District Office (fields closed during construction)
- Same process as Phase One

TRAFFIC:
1. From 7A - 7P, trucks will enter / exit Treasure Mountain Junior High via Kearns Boulevard. There will be no lane closures, but flaggers may help trucks enter and exit.

2. The entrance to the bike tunnel under Kearns Blvd. may close briefly at the Comstock entrance during construction. Access to the path along school property and recreation fields will be restricted.

3. Parking lots at Treasure Mountain may be closed during the project.

OTHER NOTES:
Park City typically requires sprinklers not be used during the day. However, during construction, sprinklers will be used to keep soil damp and eliminate dust exposure. It's also likely you'll see workers wearing Tyvek suits - this is to limit their longterm exposure to contaminants -- and to keep clothing clean.

If you have any questions, please email us: communication@pcschools.us.

15 TO CLEAN!

Over the next three years, Park City School District will plate up more nutritious food - while also appealing to our little ones' palates.

15 TO CLEAN means 15 ingredients will be plucked out and packed away - for good - to make our offerings to students more healthful. To ensure kids try the food - and like it! - we will educate our students about the newer, healthier options. We continue to work in conjunction with a number of experts in our community, like a chef from Deer Valley and the EATS Park City team (EATS stands for Eat Awesome Things At School). We're collaborating on things like ingredient selection, recipe creation and, everyone's favorite, elementary school taste tests!
Our Child Nutrition Task Force will tackle 5 ingredients to excise from the menu (district-wide) over the course of each school year, starting in September, 2016. Here are the first five:

1. Trans-Fats
2. High-Fructose Corn Syrup
3. MSG
4. Sucralose
5. Sulphites / Sulfites
