Running with Ed MakerSpace Fundraiser

This year, EHMS teacher Brad Gannon will run the entire length of Running With Ed in support of the MakerSpaces at Ecker Hill Middle School and the Park City Education Foundation. At Ecker, we have created two MakerSpaces which have allowed our students to focus on realistic project-based learning where they use critical thinking and technological tools to solve problems individually and as a team. These MakerSpace projects foster curiosity and interest. None of these experiences would be possible without the generous support of the Park City Education Foundation and community members. Let's make a difference in Park City Schools! Donate to our fundraiser today! Please visit runsignup.com/makerspace.

Parent PowerSchool Access

To set up a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will need their student's parent access ID and password. (This information is mailed home the first week of September.) Parents can link all of their students to one Parent Account, all you need is the parent access ID and password for each of your students. For instructions, see the Parent Single Sign-On Instruction Sheet.

If you lose, or didn't receive, your Parent Account set-up instructions, contact the school. For security reasons, we will not give out account information by phone, fax, or email. Logins can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.

With a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will have access to a special Email Notifications page where they can sign up for automatic progress reports. Because of this exclusive feature, it is highly recommended that parents keep their account ID and password confidential and not share it with their student. Students get their own ID and password when they pick up their laptop.
