--------

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

We are looking for volunteers! Please click here if you'd like to sign-up.


Donations Needed

With the start of cold and flu season, our school is running low on Kleenex tissues and Clorox wipes. If you would like to donate these items in lieu of your volunteer hours, please bring them to the main office. Thank you!


Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

We have two volunteer opportunities coming up! You don't have to have a background check for either, so this is a great opportunity for all! All volunteer opportunities can be accessed here.

1. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - volunteers are needed to help sell tickets, take tickets and run concessions at our school musical next week. Click here to view.

2. Paradigm Winter Market - Aside from helping at the actual Market (click here), we are looking for help with our advertising! The goal of our Markets is to get our name out in the community and to have people visit and learn more about our school. We have an official event on Facebook that we would like to start circulating. You can count 1 hour of volunteer time for specifically inviting Facebook friends to the event (or however long it takes you, but you can count 1 hour if it only takes you 20-30 mins). Please make sure to "Invite Friends" from our event page (see below) and not just share it on your feed. 

Click here for the Facebook event.

We also need help posting flyers around in neighborhoods on mailboxes or on front doors. We're looking to specifically target the neighborhoods surrounding Paradigm (including Daybreak). This is a super easy way to get volunteer hours in - you can even take your family with you on a walk to do it! Please click here to sign-up.

The Prep School will be holding a Colonial Day on Friday December 13th. We are looking for parents who have been approved by Paradigm (background check cleared) to volunteer for the day. Please click here if you'd like to sign-up.


Paradigm Scholar Email and Adobe Accounts

If you have not yet filled out the Acceptable Use Policy for School and Personal Electronics form, please click here. Once this form is filled out by a parent, you will be given your scholar's Paradigm email and Adobe account information.


Paradigm Star Wars Movie

Only a few tickets left! Paradigm has rented out a theater for the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie showing on Friday December 20th at 1:45 pm. Tickets go on sale Monday October 28th in the main office. Tickets are $9.00 for regular seating and $10.00 for luxury seating. All seating is assigned in the theater, so if you want to sit with friends and/or family, make sure to purchase your tickets together! This is not a fundraiser for the school, we just want to watch the movie with our friends!


Power Lunch

High School scholars are invited to bring their lunch onto the stage and learn about different careers and pathways. This Thursday we are excited to have Ed Endemano join us. He is a firefighter, real estate investor and small business owner. We hope you'll be able to join us!


"Aftermath"

Scholars who need extra help with math can attend "Aftermath" Monday-Thursday each week from 3-4 pm in room #109. A math mentor will be available each day to help. Aftermath is not held the first Monday of each month.


Lost and Found

Our Lost and Found is overflowing! If you are missing lunchboxes, hoodies, water bottles, etc. please come take a look. All items will be donated to charity over winter break.
