Our integral programming enhances
our challenging curriculum!

FROM MULTI-GRADE learning and mentoring experiences to reading time with community volunteers to talented and gifted enrichment opportunities, Paris School offers unique programming that builds character and confidence, expands horizons, and maximizes student success!

 

All-school literacy unit: For two weeks each Spring, our entire school embarks on an exciting single-topic, cross-curriculum learning journey. Past literacy unit topics include Oceans, Africa, Medieval Times, China, and Down on the Farm.

Band and Choir: Our fifth graders may begin playing an instrument in the Paris School band. Students in fifth through eighth grades may participate in
general music, band, or choir.

Come Read With Me: This unique program pairs area volunteers with Paris School elementary students for one-on-one
reading time.

by Kenosha County’s Sheriff’s Department Deputy Friendly.

D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read): Our primary students and staff, alike, benefit from reading at school for pleasure!

Foreign Language: Paris School offers Spanish instruction in grades seven and eight.

High School algebra option: Central High School algebra is available to Paris School eighth graders who excel in math.

Kids Helping Kids (KHK) mentoring program: Elementary and middle school pairs work together to complete journaling, art, and community service activities to build tolerance, teamwork, and unity.

Monthly character education: Students who have best exemplified the monthly character trait, such as “teamwork,” or “responsibility” receive special recognition.

Ninety-minute reading/language & math learning blocks: Our middle school students learn best when given the opportunity to concentrate
for longer periods of time.

Power of Positive Students (POPS): This program sponsors positive student activities and a “PAWS” reward system for academic success
and exemplary citizenship.

Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program: This pull-out program offers middle school students challenging enrichment opportunities and stimulating curriculum such as Math 24, Literature Anthology, and Middle School Leadership.
