Dear Paradigm Families,
Here are our announcements for the week of December 5, 2022
Thank you so much for all of your support last week on Giving Tuesday! We were able to raise over $1,200 and will be able to use that money to help bolster our school library and other student programs.
Oral Exam Week Schedule
Oral Exam week is almost here! This Thursday is the last day of classes for all high school scholars. Next Tuesday, December 13th, will be the final day for prep school scholars. Please check the schedules below for more info. If you need to know when your scholar is scheduled for their oral exam, please contact the front office (your scholar should know when their exam is scheduled, so please check with them first).
Dress Code Expectations
Scholars are expected to come to their oral exam in either their school uniform OR they can come in business professional dress. If a scholar chooses business professional, then they must follow the Paradigm dress standards.

Merry Mentor Christmas!
A group of parents are working to collect donations to provide gift cards as a thank you to our mentors and staff this holiday season. If you are interested in donating, you can send a Venmo to Britta Schugk at @Britta-Schugk ($25 increments) or you can bring gift cards or cash to the front office and we will get them to Britta. If you would like to contribute in another way, please email Britta at email@example.com. All donations need to be sent in by this Monday December 12th. Thank you!
Drop off and Pick Up Reminder
Parents, please make sure you are only picking up and dropping off your scholars in the south parking lot. The west parking lot is for scholar parking and should be safe and easily accessible for scholars and emergency vehicles. There should be no picking up or dropping off in the west parking lot. Visitor parking spots are reserved for those volunteering or taking care of business in the front office, never for drop off or pick up. Please do not block these spots. The parking spaces on the northwest side by the garage are reserved for administration and office staff.
When exiting either parking lot, please follow all traffic signs. There is no left turn allowed, especially during busy times before or after school. If you are waiting to turn left, it creates a large back-up in our parking lots.
Also, please be aware of pedestrians and do not speed through our parking lots. Please be mindful of our neighbors on either side of the school as well. Let’s keep everyone safe. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you!

I love Paradigm. My children have never been happier, and have found a love of learning that was missing in their previous education!Julia H.
I went to Paradigm all through high school. Best experience ever. Not only did it help me focus on my strengths, but it also prepared me for college with its challenging curriculum that makes you think outside the box. The mentors there care about each of their students individually, and want nothing more than the students’ success.Jennifer L.
