Dear Paradigm Families,

Here are our announcements for the week:

  • This week is Spirit Week! Everyone's crazy hair has been CRAZY today and we love it! Make sure you participate in the rest of our festivities this week: Tuesday is Tie Day, Wednesday is Ugly Sweater Day and Movie Night (7pm at Paradigm), Thursday is Tacky Day (mismatched clothes that are still Paradigm appropriate), and Friday is Hat Day!
  • Next Tuesday, March 5th, we will be administering the ACT to all Juniors. We will also administer preparatory ACT exams for all Freshmen and Sophomores. These tests will be offered at no charge for Paradigm students. Students should come prepared with plenty of sleep, a good breakfast, and a calculator. Juniors will also need to bring their photo ID. This day will be a half-day and we will have more details next Monday. Seniors will be given the day off (unfortunately we cannot offer the test to seniors as the grant we received was only for grades 9-11). Please contact Dr. Henke,, if you have any questions.
  • Jostens will be here during lunch tomorrow to pick-up orders from the Junior meeting last week.
  • Attention Seniors and Juniors! A representative from Snow College will be here tomorrow Tuesday February 26th during lunch to visit with students and answer any questions you may have. This is a great opportunity to start thinking about your future!
