As a follow-up to our newsletter last week, we want to remind you that tomorrow is our school council election. We have decided to extend the time of the vote from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m to accommodate parents who work outside the Paradise area.
We encourage you to reread the candidates biographies that were included in our last newsletter. Ballots can be found at the main office and there is one vote per parent/guardian. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
