Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my pleasure to be working with you to embark on another exciting year at Paradise Elementary School. With our collaborative approach to teaching and learning, the students, parents, and staff at Paradise Elementary have made my years as an administrator a success. I truly thank each of you for the continued support.
Your summer days are about to come to an end and your falls days are about to begin. The journey we will take this year will have some hills and valleys, but along the way we will strive to reach our destiny to promote a culture of excellence and continued growth for students, staff, and parents. Let us begin our journey of success.
I am proud to introduce our new faculty member who will be joining the Paradise Elementary team this year. Please welcome all our newest teacher: Samantha Schrum, 5th grade.
I look forward to continuing to work with each of you as we strive to serve our students and help each of them reach their full potential. In closing, please know my door will always be open to you. I know and understand that communication is the key to a successful year.
Debbi Davis, Proud to be Paradise Elementary School’s Principal
We welcome parent involvement at Paradise Elementary School. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education generally are more successful in school and in life.
Please visit the school office any time and stay in touch with your child's teacher - see the Staff Directory for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
Please consider being involved with our PTO, Panther Club, for school-wide activities.
We also welcome community participation, including donations of time, money, materials and expertise.
In 2010 California adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCCSS) to make sure that all children succeed once they graduate from high school. The Common Core State Standards are important because they will help all children learn the skills and knowledge to help them become college and career ready when they graduate. The new standards make several important changes to current standards. These changes are called shifts. Click here to access a Parent's Backpack Guide to Common Core State Standards.
