First UIL Checkpoint: Oct. 2
Parents and students are reminded that Paris High has changed its grading periods from six to nine weeks' duration. However, eligibility to participate in extracurricular events is governed by UIL guidelines. There are numerous "UIL Checkpoints" listed in the school calendar above where students may lose and/or gain UIL eligibility. Although the first nine weeks' grading period doesn't end until Friday, Oct. 17, the first UIL checkpoint is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 2. Students who are failing any class will become ineligible on that date.
Staff Development Planned
Paris High students will enjoy another three-day weekend soon. Paris ISD has a staff development day planned for Friday, Oct. 3.

Everyone needs trash bags. They're practical, not just for taking out the garbage, but can also serve as a fashion accessory for those rainy fall nights at football games. The freshmen, sophomore, and junior classes have joined forces this year on a series of fund-raisers with the shared goal of funding this year and future proms. The first fund-raiser features industrial-strength, 33-gallon trash bags in a roll of 50 for just $12. Orders are due by Monday, Oct. 6.
