    Paradise Elementary School


Welcome to 2018 Paradise! This has been an exicting first semester for me as principal and I am looking forward to the rest of the school year. Our faculty and staff are some of the most dedicated, caring educators in Rapides Parish and we are fortunate to have them. As we begin the second semester, we will focus on ways to improve student performance at Paradise. There are many things that you can do to help us. First, make sure your child is on-time and present every day. Attendance is important to the success of our school and for this we need your help. To encourage attendance we will be holding contests between students and teachers to see who can have the highest attendance rates each month. Another thing you can do to help ensure our success is encourage your child to read and work toward meeting their AR goal. Students who meet or exceed their goal each nine weeks will earn awards and recognition for their achievement. If you have any questions about your child's reading level or AR goal please contact his or her teacher. A third way you can help is to be involved! You are a very important part of our Paradise family and we want you to be there. Each Thursday evening from 4-6 we have Open Library Night where you can come iwht your child and read and take AR tests, work on homework, or ever work on the computer programs that your child uses at school. In additition, we have a math and an ELA tutor present to offer assistance with homework. We are in the process of purchasing some materials that you can use to help your student such as flash cards and books. We have many fun things scheduled for this semester at Paradise so please keep your calendar in a safe place and check Dojo for messages!
