It's Not Too Late to Purchase a Yearbook!
Never fear the next episode of Yearbook Man is here! We may not be able to post it in the halls but we've got it right here for your enjoyment. I can imagine you've been wondering what was Keagan's response in discovering that Penny is Forget Me Not.
Well the yearbook staff has not forgotten you. We have been hard at work covering our quarantine life too. Enjoy this edition of yearbook man and don't forget to buy a yearbook. Where do I buy a yearbook you might ask? Right here at this link https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/productBrowse/1865891/Paradigm-High-School/2020-Yearbook/20190708041557033111/CATALOG_SHOP/

Paradigm Email Accounts
If you are a senior or you are not returning to Paradigm next year, please note that your email account and access to Adobe Creative Cloud will be suspended after June 15, 2020. Please make sure to download or save anything that you want to keep from your email or Google drive before we suspend your account!
If you are looking for a service project, Mr. Hansen is in need of help with weeding our flower beds on the school grounds. You are welcome to come anytime and help out. Thank you for your help!
We are going to grow vegetables in our garden this summer for the benefit of Paradigm families that have no garden space and would like some fresh produce. Before we plant, we are in need of 4 cubic yards of compost and/or organic-rich loam soil for the boxes, as the existing soil level is low. Once we have more material for the boxes, we could use help from someone with a small tiller to mix it in with the existing soil. Please email Mitzi Jensen, horticulture mentor at firstname.lastname@example.org to offer help or donations or if you would like to serve on the Paradigm Garden Committee. Thank you!
