Paris Junior High is the 7th and 8th grade campus in the Paris Independent School District in Paris, Texas



Paris High School Student Crime Stoppers will be hosting a fundraising Jail-A-Thon.  This is a fun event that has been used successfully by Crime Stoppers program across North America to raise money necessary to operate a program and pay rewards for information that helps solve real campus crimes including bullying. 

From 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. Wednesday March 11th, 2015, at PHS cafeteria, community members will volunteer to spend time in a makeshift jail to help the Student Crime Stoppers raise money.  Local politicians, high school staff members, and local business leaders will be required to raise bail money to get out of jail.  All of the bail money raised will go to support the PHS Student Crime Stoppers Program.


The community will have the opportunity to have a colleague or employer “arrested” for a good cause.  In order to have someone arrested, you must purchase a warrant.  Warrant fees are $50.

We will transport the “inmate” to PHS jail where they will be arraigned by a student judge and bail set.  They must then call on others in order to raise their bail money to be released.

The “inmates” will be served lunch in the cafeteria prepared by Assistant Athletic director Chad Helberg.

For warrant information, please email Shonda Ragsdale (sragsdale@parisisd.net) or Officer Joey McCarthy (jmccarthy@parisisd.net) or call them at 903-737-7400.

It’s voluntary, it’s fun, and it’s a great way to support a good cause!!
