Tom Mattson passed away on Wed. Dec 9th in Watsonville, California. He taught History at Paradise high School for 34 years, and live in the town of Paradise for over 30 years. He was a coach in Football and Basketball many years. He retired from Paradise High School in 2005. He serve in the Marine Corp during the Vietnam War as a machine gunner on a Helicopter that picked up wounded Marines. I would like if you could ask many teachers if they remember him. Also I as his friend would like to nominate him to the Paradise Hall of Fame.
My lovely 17-year-old High School Junior daughter came downstairs this morning wearing a Paradise High School Sweat Shirt. Probably the only one at her high school here in Plano Texas. I imagine children of Alums everywhere would look good wearing a PHS t-shirt or sweatshirt. It certainly would be unique. Here is the link to order all the PHS inspired items.
Any posts about the cancelation of Virtual classes this morning?
Does the school offer any T-shirts they are selling for any fund raisers? Looking to buy a Paradise T-shirt to help support your community. I reside in Florida so it would have to be shipped at my cost. Thank you.
Today Tuesday, August 25 is our last USDA Protein Box give away. We will have 20# of Chicken + 20# of Cheese for each household. Please stop by 5657 Recreation Drive in Paradise 8:00-11:00 am.
Please plan on waiting in the bus lane and refrain from smoking while on school grounds.
It's been a pleasure serving the community during this time and we will keep our fingers crossed for another program soon from the USDA.
This sweet guy that came up an filmed our boys explains his battle with covid 😥

Congratulations to Andrew Axxton Jauron for being nominated Paradise High School Student of the Week. Andrew was nominated by Ms. Stephanie Swift Minderhoud and she said, “Andrew Axxton Jauron is a great example of a resilient Bobcat. The amount of maturity, humor, empathy, kindness, volunteerism, and friendship that Andrew has exhibited since 8th grade is incredibly commendable. He excels at music and is very creative. An example of Andrew's positive virtues is when he stayed late one night picking up the trash in the gym after a basketball game, without being asked! He has persevered through more life challenges than the average adult. Through all of this, he continues to push forward with determination and hope. Andrew is an amazing, senior, young man with a future of great opportunities ahead of him.”
Congratulations, Andrew!”

He generally doesn't like to choose favorites, but said, Senora Najera is his favorite because he's been with her since freshman year and she has a good personality.

"It's hard to hate someone whose story you know."

Today finished our three days of Breaking Down the Walls, a program designed to create a safe environment for students to build empathy and understanding through their "play, trust, learn" model. By first helping students laugh together, they start to trust one another, and eventually want to learn from those outside their normal friend group. The intention of the workshops is to leave everyone with the realization we are truly BETTER TOGETHER!

Congratulations to Matthew Dunlap for being nominated Paradise High School Student of the Week. Matthew was nominated by Mr. Travis Kaye and he said, “Matt is a pillar in my 1st period class. He makes an effort to learn the material, participates in class discussions, and brings energy to the class. Beyond this, Matt supports his classmates: from carrying another student’s math binder to class so they don’t lose it, to encouraging and helping others to complete assignments. On more than one occasion I have heard him tell classmates “I do not want to see you fail.” First period would not be the same without him.
Thank you Matt for being a leader and support to our class!”
