Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant for MPES
McPolin Elementary has been awarded the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant for school year 2015-2016. The grant will provide a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for the students as a snack during the school day. The goal of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is to create a healthier school environment by providing healthier food choices, expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, and make a difference in children's diets to impact their present and future health. The program provides a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables through a grant, at no cost to the student. Along with trying new fruits and vegetables, students will be given nutrition education as well. We are excited to have this program at McPolin for the next school year! Keep an eye out for the variety of fruits and vegetables the students will get throughout the year!

The Park City Board of Education announced today that Philip Kaplan will fill the school board seat for outgoing board member Moe Hickey. Kaplan’s term will begin on July 1, 2015 and end on December 31, 2016. Kaplan will be sworn in at the first board meeting of the school year in August of 2015. This position will come up for re-election in the November 2016 general election.
Kaplan’s position will cover District 1 – upper and lower Deer Valley, Old Town, Prospector and Thaynes. “We are looking forward to having Philip join our team,” said Park City School Superintendent, Dr. Ember Conley. “We know he will be both an asset to our board and a passionate advocate for public education in Park City,” she added.
Kaplan brings a diverse background of strategic planning and financial acumen to the board. He has been an executive at a variety of public companies with substantial experience in turning around struggling companies and creating sustainable budgets while enhancing profitability. Kaplan has also been on several non-profit boards specializing in schools and family services, including the Park City Education Foundation Board. On the PCEF board, he has proven himself to be a working board member by developing the Scholar Circle as well as major gifts and philanthropy. In just two years, he has made large contributions to the Park City community that has benefitted our schools and other non-profits.
Kaplan has owned a home in Park City since 2007 and moved to town full-time in 2013. He settled in Park City to devote more time to raising his two children and participating in their education. He is the father of a 13-year-old daughter going into Treasure Mountain Junior High next year and a 5-year-old son who will start attending Park City schools in the 2016-2017 school year. In the past two years, Kaplan has been an active volunteer at Ecker for the reading program, Academic League and chaperone.
