“College Knowledge Fridays”

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, also known as UNLV, is located in Paradise, Nevada, approximately 1.6 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. This university is known for their emphasis in research through science and technology, business management, and law. This campus also holds Nevada’s only dental school, the UNLV School of Dental Medicine.

Leona Jackson Middle School was happy to welcome the mayor of Paramount, Daryl Hofmeyer, PUSD Supt of Schools, Ruth Perez, and PUSD Board President, Tony Pena. They were here to present Mr. Sierra and his team with a lunch for their efforts in raising over $10,000 in the recent PEP Scholarship Fundraiser. Money collected goes to help Paramount High School seniors toward scholarship for colleges. Mr. Sierra and his team were the top money collectors for our school in a very spirited and fun March Madness competition between the teachers and their classrooms.
Congratulations to Mr.Kirkpatrick and our boys basketball team who beat the Alondra Dolphins in the Championship. It was a hard fought game, but our team pulled it off, bringing the trophy home to Jackson. Way to go boys!

Jackson's New Field
It is our great pleasure to introduce you to our new FieldTurf field. This high performance artificial turf system is designed to deliver maximum performance and playability to our community. The addition of the FieldTurf field will allow us to reduce water usage and drastically increase the available playable hours for our athletes. Per the manufacturer, long term studies have also shown that this high quality FieldTurf system can help reduce player injuries relative to natural grass. We are excited to have this new surface and know that it will serve our community well for the years to come. This field is our field, so we hope that all field users treat the field with the utmost respect and care by following the rules below.
In addition, flavored and/or colored drinks will NOT be allowed on campus. Students may only bring water to school.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

In our diverse community, we recognize that many students and their families are struggling with questions, concerns and fears about the recent immigration enforcement actions taking place across the state. We work very hard to make our schools safe spaces for learning for every one of our students. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that a child’s race, religion, or immigration status do not create any barriers to their education.
Paramount Air Monitoring Activities (Click Here)
The Paramount USD administration is working with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) to provide our district direction and information regarding the current Chromium 6 investigative process in the City of Paramount. The SCAQMD is the regulatory organization in charge of the air quality in the area, as well as the agency providing information regarding the current investigation.
The SCAQMD has indicated to our district that their action plan includes the placement of testing equipment in district property. School district staff will work with the SCAQMD regarding location and timing of the placement and will provide access to their personnel so that they can complete the testing equipment placement. Additionally, we have asked for information regarding their reports and findings that can be shared with our district community, and they have directed us to their web site, which includes web pages dedicated to information about their air monitoring activities in the City of Paramount, their meetings and processes.
