Tonight is "Blue Out" Ram Stadium for our game against Piggott! Coach Phillips is starting a new tradition called the "Ram Walk" Join us as our football players walk from the Field House to the South end of the football field where they will enter the run through tunnel. Fans can line the area along the Ram Walk (see photo) to cheer on the Rams. We invite students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to join us on the field for the Run Through. Students will enter the field through the small gate at the 50 yard line after the Ram Walk (see photo). See you tonight, Ram fans!
This year's theme is "It Takes a Village". Today we are opening up the sale of theme shirts to all in our Ram village and that means YOU! Support the Rams and buy one before the shop closes on 8/21/23. Use the QR code on the flyer to order or check out the link on our website.
The staff and students of the Paragould School District volunteered at the United Way's Stuff the Bus event today. We'd like to say thank you to the patrons of Paragould who generously gave to our students.
Did someone say COMMUNITY PEP RALLY? Oh yea, that was us! Join us for this first ever event at Ram Stadium on Friday, August 18th. The event is open to all Ram fans. It will have everything a pep rally should: food, games, bounce houses, booths to showcase our student clubs and organizations including our award winning Beta Club and PJHS Quiz Bowl, cheerleaders, dancers, introduction of fall and spring sports, a live performance by the Paragould Pride band, and it will end with FIREWORKS! The fun begins at 5:30 and ends at 9:00pm. See you there, Ram fans!

Do a quick Google search and you will see there are more than 32,000 teachers in the state of Arkansas. What it won't tell you is that yesterday, two of PSD's 4th grade teachers, Julia Sleeper and Farrah Wilcox, were recognized as high impact teachers for multiple years of high student growth. Only 50 teachers in Arkansas achieved this high honor and Mrs. Sleeper and Ms. Farrah are the only two in NEA! Pictured with our high impact teachers is Ivy Pfeffer, Deputy Commissioner of the Arkansas Department of Education who presented them with their award. They will be participating in focus groups for the DESE this summer. Congratulations! We are proud of you!
