Families with no income or low income could get at least $3,000 per child with the Child Tax Credit, plus $1,400 with the third stimulus payment - even if they have never filed taxes before (and if they have not yet already filed taxes this year).

Outreach materials are available in 11 languages, including flyers, template emails, texts, and robo calls. Families can be directed tohttps://www.getctc.org/en to sign up. Se habla espanol.

We're hoping parents can join our first Parent Chat of 2022-23 on the topic of Self-Efficacy, on Thursday, November 10, from 6-7 PM on Zoom. Hear from PPPS educators and other parents, ask questions, and join the discussion on the topic of developing a positive, "can-do" mindset in students. The impact on student success is powerful, and backed by research. The program will be hosted virtually on the Zoom platform, and the link can be found at PPPS.ORG in the NEWS section of the district home page.
Important Announcement: The yellow flashing lights on the speed limit signs near the Paw Paw High School entrance are currently not working properly. The PPPS Maintenance Department is aware of this issue, and they are working to have it resolved by Thursday, at the latest. Please exercise caution in this area, and thank you for your patience.
Recently, the Transportation Department at PPPS sponsored a poster contest for School Bus Safety Week. Students grades Y5-5th grade were invited to design posters around the theme "Take Pride In How You Ride" with a focus on positive behavior while riding the school bus. One winner was chosen from each grade level, and winners received a certificate signed by Transportation Director Angela Vasquez, a keepsake group photo, a Boo Book from Wendy's for 5 free Frosties and a Halloween candy bag! The student's posters will also be on display at the Elementary schools for all to see. #SchoolBusSafety
With so many rowdy M&M's in the school, it's a good thing we have our first "official" PPMS Hallway Howler, School Board Member Ray Martin, patrolling the halls today! (He's the only bearded M&M in the photo :) If you'd like to get more involved in the schools, consider volunteering to become a Hallway Howler. Howlers are positive role models for students who provide extra adult supervision in the hallways and common areas. Contact any of the schools at www.ppps.org to learn more.
Halloween Dress Up Days are in full swing at Paw Paw Middle School! Monster Monday was followed by Fall for All, then Flip-Flop Day, and today is Opening-Day, where students and staff were encouraged to wear their camouflage, dress like a deer or wear their hunting outfits.
