Thanks to YOU, PCEF To Bring Bestselling Author Ruta Sepetys to Park City!

A t the request of teachers and students, the Author-in-Residence summer reading program has been moved to January, 2018.  As such, there is no summer reading program for Author-in-Residence this year. 

Another exciting change is the Author-in-Residence program is joining forces with the One Book One Community reading program, and will be renamed 'One Book One Community, sponsored by PCEF.' 

Thanks to our donors, PCEF is thrilled to bring  Salt to the Sea  bestselling author Ruta Sepetys to Park City. She will be speaking with PCHS students on January 8th and 9th, as well as at a public Community Conversation the evening of January 9th.

Teacher Spotlight: Celebrating 30 Years
We've been delighted to spotlight PCSD teachers and staff who have been in the district for at least 30 years or graduated from PCHS 30 years ago.

We profiled veteran Ecker Hill 6th grade Language Arts teacher Kerry Griffith in 2014. Kerry just retired after 30 years of teaching! 

Kerry Griffith has been teaching 6th grade Language Arts at Ecker Hill since it opened, and at Treasure Mountain before that. "I grew up in New England, and went to college to become a teacher. After getting my undergrad and graduate degree, I taught 6th grade in Connecticut one year. "
"I heard about Park City from some friends, and decided to move to try the outdoor life. I met some remarkable people teaching at Treasure, and they convinced me to try teaching again. And I've been teaching 6th grade ever since!" Read more.
