Hello Patriots!

Here are our announcements for the week of January 19, 2020:

High School Winter Formal

High School scholars (9th-12th grade) are invited to join us for our annual Winter Formal on Saturday January 30th in the Paradigm Independence Hall (gym). Tickets can be purchased in the main office or at the door.

All guests will need to wear a mask the entire time. We will also conduct temperature checks at the door. The gym doors will be propped open to help with ventilation. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 the day of the dance, please stay home. If you purchase tickets before the dance and are unable to attend, we will issue you a refund.

If you choose to bring a guest from outside of Paradigm (one outside guest per scholar), then please pick up an Activity Guest Form in front of the main office. This completed form must be turned in when you purchase your guest ticket.

The dress code for this dance is semi-formal to formal. Please use the following dress standard. Anyone who does not meet this standard will be asked to either correct it or go home.
  • Ladies: Dresses/skirts must be mid-calf to floor length. No bare shoulders or bare backs, no cleavage or sheer clothing. No crop tops.
  • Gentlemen: Dress shirt, tie, dress pants, and dress shoes are required. Suit jacket is optional.

Get Your 2020-21 Yearbook!

"Chip Chip Hooray" we are grateful for you....grateful for all you have done to "chip" into the yearbook this year.   We have a goal every year to have each scholar in the book at least 3 times.  If you are learning from home the yearbook staff will be sending you surveys and reaching out to you.  In order to reach that goal and make you feel included please respond to their emails.  We are doing our best to capture this school year that is like no other.

Have you guys heard about Yearbook Plus? it’s this new super cool thing from Jostens, and it’s totally going to change our yearbook experience!

Well, for starters, it  makes your yearbook not only more personal for you and your friends! You can upload up to 10 of your own personal photos and scan them right from the book, no app needed! This will give the yearbook a whole new perspective, no matter if you’re online or not.  Look for an email in your Paradigm email this week for more information. 

To thank you for "chipping" into the yearbook we will be celebrating you because you are "all that and a bag of chips."  Have you seen the chip key chains that are on the yearbook staff's backpacks?  They are real chip bags that have been magically shrunk.  (How cool is that?)  Well we want you to have one too.  For everyone that has purchased a yearbook or who submits photos to the school section of yearbook plus we will gift you a "chip bag" keychain.  

The price will go up soon and it's not too late to buy.

Mastery Projects

You should do a Mastery Project! You can increase your knowledge and your grade by researching and presenting that research to two of your classes.  Your grade can be increased by going from a '3' to a '4' or a '4' to a '5'!  Did you say a five?  Yes, that's what we said!  Also, your Mastery Project can be entered into the Paradigm Gallery in November if you'd like.
