Dear Paradigm Families,

Here are our announcements for the week:

  • Picture Day is tomorrow! Pictures will be taken for all students from 8:00am and noon. Picture packets were handed out on Friday. If your student did not receive one, there are extras available in the main office. Everyone will need to have their picture taken tomorrow, regardless if you are buying pictures or not. These photos will also be used for Student ID cards and for the yearbook. If you would like to purchase photos with a credit card, please visit and enter in the code UM032387Y0. You will be given an online payment code once you have purchased your photos. Make sure you write this number down on the picture packet. All students wanting to purchase pictures will need to turn in a picture packet when they have their photo taken. Attached is a copy of the picture packet with packages and prices. Make sure your student comes looking their best in the dress code!
  • Are you tired of being monolingual or just using your mouth to talk? Do you get mad when you can't hear the person talking next to you? Then join the American Sign Language (ASL) Club! Learn how to use your hands to communicate, learn about the deaf community, and you can make great new friends! ASL Club meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00pm to 3:30pm in room 224.
  • Just a reminder that Academic Decathlon meets every day in room 201 after school. Please come and join the team! We will be studying Russia this year and we hope to see more people on our team. We promise you will have fun!
  • Calling the Paradigm Mock Trial Court to Order! We are looking for Attorneys, Witnesses, and Bailiffs to fight for justice! The Mock Trial/Debate Club will be meeting tomorrow immediately after school (it will be a short one!) in room 223. Come and see what Mock Trial is all about!
  • The Paradigm Shakespeare Team has been decided! We want to thank everyone that tried out. The list of team members have been posted on the glass in the front office and our first rehearsal is after school this Wednesday. See you there!
  • Attention all sophomores and juniors! The PSAT is approaching fast! If you are interested in taking the test, you must register in the front office before Monday September 24th. The cost is $15.
  • Yearbooks are a great way to preserve your Paradigm memories. They are available to purchase online on our school's website or in the main office. They are $50. We promise everyone will be in the yearbook at least twice and we will highlight each and every activity and all of the wonderful things you do in your mentor's classes.
  • Seniors! Your baby pictures and senior quotes are due! Please e-mail your baby pictures to or bring your photo into the office and we will scan it for you.
  • Announcing the Paradigm Fall Barnes and Noble Book Fair! It will be held September 21st and 22nd at the Sandy Barnes and Noble Bookstore near the South Towne Mall. We will have a pre-order book list available next week with a list of books that every Paradigm Family should own in their library. More information to come! All parents that are interested in volunteering during the book fair should e-mail Mrs. McCoy at
  • Get ready! The Fall Dutch Oven Cook-Off is on Friday October 5th. Find a partner (only two people per group!) and come to the short informational meeting this Friday after school in room 101. Questions? See Ms. Hanson in room 101!

Have a great week!
