Night Falls
Point Short

The Paris Wildcats had an historic night on the football field Friday, statistically, but they came up a point short of continuing their 18-game district win streak in an exhausting, 65-64 loss to the Princeton Panthers.  The Cats try to regain momentum in the District 7-4A-1 chase next Friday, Oct. 24, when they visit Pittsburg to take on the Pirates.  Read more.

PHS Band Qualifies for Area Contest

The Blue Blazes Band earned a Division I rating at Tuesday's Region 4 UIL Marching Band Contest in Mount Pleasant despite having to deal with windy conditions.  The rating advances them to the Area C finals on Oct. 25 in Longview where berths at the state contest will be on the line.

BlueTube Presents "On the run"

BlueTube, Paris High's weekly video news magazine, finds some time before closing out the first nine weeks to assemble a show we call "On the run."  We find the cross country team practicing in the dark, trying to bring the program into the spotlight.  We check out highlights from a couple of big district victories in Plays of the Week, and we take a quick look at last week's pep rally.  See past episodes on our BlueTube page.

Happening Now at PHS
Students to be Recognized

Paris High School has lots of students who go above and beyond the norm of student expectations to help make the school a better place for learning.  Each month, we will recognize such students with the designation as Student of the Month.  To get the honor rolling, PHS Principal Chris Vaughn has named freshman Trae Dudley as September's winner.  Future monthly winners will be chosen by a committee from faculty nominations.  Winners receive a $25 WalMart gift card, and their picture will be displayed on the school website and in a trophy case desginated as the Current Student Wall of Honor.  At the end of the school year, there will be a drawing among all monthly winners for a $100 Applebees gift card.
