Paradise Junior High School Principal

Greg Fletcher, Principal

Dear Students and Families:

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Paradise Junior High! As always it is a great honor to be the Principal here at PJH and I am very excited to begin the new school year.

Parents frequently ask questions about what they can do to support their child during the junior high years. Junior High can be challenging at times, but there are several simple things that will help students achieve success.

Parents, please take time to:

  • Talk with your child about their school day. Ask them specific questions about their time at school.
  • Review your child’s grades on the Parent Portal. The Portal will give you relevant information regarding your child’s performance on their homework, a test or quiz as well as their attendance. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best.
  • Maintain contact with your child’s teachers and staff members to establish a successful home/school connection. All of our teachers have classroom websites with their contact information, homework assignments, and useful resources.
  • Students, here are some tips to help you get your school year started:

  • Make reminders and plan ahead.
  • Make time for homework and assignments.
  • Check your grades frequently on the Portal.
  • Break big projects into smaller ones.
  • Prepare the night before.
  • Get involved at school.
  • Our goal is to challenge your child academically, grow them socially and emotionally, and guide them toward independent thinking and problem solving. Students will be encouraged to display good character and to make good choices that will result in successful outcomes. It will be a great school year filled with enriching activities and learning experiences that help your child display "Panther Pride!"

    I love working with you and your child throughout this school year to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success. Thank you for your part in the success at Paradise Junior High.

    Go Panthers!!!
