Our Parent Chat program returns on Thursday, April 22 @ 7 PM, with an important topic entitled Sex Education, Sexual Safety, and the Law. We will share information about our sex education and reproductive health program in Paw Paw. We will also be joined by Van Buren County Prosecutor Susan Zuiderveen and two assistant prosecutors from her office to share with families information that can help parents inform and protect their children. As always, after presentations there will be an opportunity for questions and dialogue. We hope you'll join the program, which will be virtual.

"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." Margaret J. Wheatley. If the community support you're seeing on signs in town is any indication, then we're in awe at how much Paw Paw cares about its schools, students, teachers and staff!

The next Paw Paw Public Schools Parent Chat program is an opportunity for a Mental Health Check-Up & Check-In. Paw Paw Public Schools Mental Health Clinician Stacey Coon-Ballard will lead a session with information that can help students, parents, and families take stock of how things are going mentally, especially for those who may be struggling at this time. The program will be held Thursday, March 11, beginning at 7 PM via the Zoom platform. There will be information for parents of students in all grade levels, K-12, shared by staff people from across the District and also time for questions and the sharing of strategies between parents and school staff people. If you would like to pre-register for the program, you can do so by signing up at this link: March 11 Pre-Registration Link. If you fill out the pre-registration you can help us better plan for the event by sharing the grade level of your student and any topic you are wanting us to be sure to cover during our presentation. An email will be sent out to all parents in the School Messenger system on Sunday, March 7, that will have the link for the program as well. If you have questions or ideas for this program or for future Parent Chat programs, please be in touch with Corey Harbaugh, Paw Paw PS Director of Curriculum & Instruction, at 269-415-5211 or email@example.com.
