Family Involvement

Parent Group 
Family school involvement is essential for student success. We eagerly seek parents to participate in our school community by joining the PINT Parent Group and volunteering to support various events and activities held throughout the school year. Our PINT Parent Group meets at 3 PM every 3rd Thursday of the month. Please contact our office or Robin King if you are available to join our family of volunteers.

School-Family Communication  
We invite families to contact the school to share ideas or concerns with administration and/or teaching staff.  Paradise Intermediate will help support the school-family communication through various methods such as phone calls/notes home, conferences, bi-monthly newsletters, post cards, school web-site, Connect-Ed phone invitations to events, planners, and daily cards to monitor student responsibility.

Parent Conferences
Parents may make appointments for conferences with teachers, counselors or the principal by telephoning the school office at 872-6465. Meetings with all of a student's teachers may be arranged through the counseling department.

School Site Council
The responsibility and authority for improvements in the process at Paradise Intermediate are shared throughout the school staff, students and School Site Council. Growth areas are identified and discussed, improvement strategies are developed and action plans are written. Staff and administration report to School Site Council on progress toward action plans. At the end of the school year, the School Site Council reviews the goals, objectives and action plans. The School Site Council recommends new action plans for the next year based on input from staff and administration. The school Site Council membership consists of parents, classified/certificated staff, students and community members. The Council typically meets on the first Monday of the month at 3:15 p.m., with open agendas, pre-posted for specific input. Shared decision-making is used in the improvement process.

Report cards are issued and mailed 4 times a year about one week after each quarter ends.  Mid-quarter progress reports for D/F grade(s) will be mailed.  Please check the School Newsletter calendar for quarter and semester end dates.
