Pictured below is Melissa Lamb, our Work Ready teacher and JAG Specialist. This past summer, the Paragould High School JAG achieved "5-of-5" for the 5th year in a row! This means our JAG students from the previous year met the NATIONAL performance outcome standards in these 5 areas:
Only 25 of the 116 programs in Arkansas met the minimum standards for this honor! Way to go, Mrs. Lamb and students - keep up the OUTSTANDING work!

The Paragould School District has been made aware of a threat made over social media. Authorities are working to investigate the anonymous post to determine where the post originated. Out of precaution, additional officers will be on the high school campus.
We have been working closely with the Paragould Police Department and have been told that the threat may have originated overseas. The safety of our students and staff is high priority for the district. We will continue to work with the Paragould Police Department to investigate this matter to the fullest and keep the public aware of developments to the best of our ability.
The District encourages parents to speak with their children about the seriousness and potential consequences of making threats online, even as a joke. All threats are taken seriously and investigated, and any students caught making threats may face possible criminal charges and expulsion from school. Student safety will always be paramount within the Paragould School District.
Just a reminder, Halloween costumes are not to be worn to school tomorrow (10/31) regular school dress code applies!
Don't forget, the first ever JROTC Trunk or Treat is TONIGHT from 6:00 - 8:00pm. Due to forecasted rain, it will be held inside the JROTC building on the PHS campus. Parking is available by the PJHS gyms and JROTC cul-de-sac.
Due to the high probability of rain this afternoon, the JROTC Trunk or Treat scheduled for today from 6:00-8:00pm will be moved inside the JROTC building. The JROTC building is located on the high school campus. Go Rams!
