Kindergarten Registration  If you have a student or know of a child in the neighborhood who will be 5 on or before September 1st next fall and is wanting to enroll them in Paramount kindergarten, please contact our front office (350-4120) to get the process started. We are CURRENTLY accepting Birth Certificate, Immunizations, and Proof of Residency (Gas, Power or Water bill). Online registration will be available soon on West Ada’s website. Please make sure you are registering using the KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION and NOT New Student Registration. If you are interested in Tuition Kindergarten please alert the office at this time. Tuition Kindergarten contracts and $100 deposit will be collected starting April 17th during Kindergarten Registration. We will hold the lottery drawing for students interested in our Tuition program, May 3rd. If we have enough interest, our full day tuition program would be taught by one of our fabulous kindergarten teachers and would serve the students from 9:05-3:55 (a minimum of 20 students is needed). The monthly fee is $250 a month which basically pays for the teacher’s salary for the second half of the day. Students in the program would be able to come to school with their brothers and sisters and then go home with them again at the end of the day. They would be here for lunch just like their siblings. It is not set up to be an advanced class, rather they have time to go more in depth then time allows in a half day program. Again, if you want to be on the list or just want more information, please let the office know.

No Animals

This is just a friendly reminder for families to please keep their pets at home during the day. As most of us love to see a cute and cuddly dog during the day, we need to remember that there are many students at Paramount that do not feel the same way.  Some of our students are very frightened of dogs and other animals or may be very allergic to them.

Paramount will monitor the weather conditions and if the temperature drops to 20 degrees or lower including wind chill, students will remain indoors during the recess periods and prior to school starting.
