Dear Paradigm Families,

Here are our announcements for the week:

(These first few announcements are specific to parents)

  • Dear Parents: It has been brought to our attention that some parents are concerned that the addition of the 7th and 8th grades will reduce course offerings for next year's high school students. We want to assure that that this is not the case.  We are very aware of the limited course offering inherent in a small school and we are doing everything we can to maintain options for our students. During the summer, we plan to build and add classrooms for high school use. This, along with a few minor scheduling changes, will allow us to offer just as many classes next year as this year. If you have questions, please feel free to contact any member of administration; you can e-mail Chris Johnson or Troy Henke at and Thank you.
  • This Wednesday April 17th we are hosting a Parent Meeting for those who have an incoming 7th or 8th grader and those interested in our Academy Program. The meeting will be held at Paradigm High School and will be from 7:00-8:30pm. Please RSVP if you plan on attending.
  • This Saturday we are pleased to host a special event at our school. Oliver DeMille, author of A Thomas Jefferson Education, will be using our facility for a TJEd 2013 Spring Seminar. TJEd has greatly influenced our methods of education and if you are interested in learning more about it or attending the seminar ($75 per person), here is a link that will help:
  • Paradigm High Student Gallery is in need of 8 parent volunteers any time from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Thursday April 25th. All we need is to hand out and collect voting ballots.This is a great way to get some volunteer hours! Please contact Laren Bateman at if you would like to help.
