Paw Paw, MI – (April 15, 2022) As a reward for reaching their reading goals in March, three winning classes from Paw Paw Later Elementary recently took a field trip to southwest Michigan’s iconic Red’s Root Beer Stand for a mouth-watering root beer float!  Not only that, but they also got to ride there in style on the Van Buren County Transit Trolley. 

The smiles you see on their faces are priceless, but what you might not see are the community connections that are being built behind the scenes between Paw Paw Public Schools and so many supportive community partners. 

Throughout the pandemic and beyond, community and business partners like Van Buren Transit, Red’s Root Beer and so many more have gone above and beyond to show their support of the schools. Thank you to all PPPS community partners for all you do to show students what it means to be part of a thriving community. #BuildTogetherPawPaw
