Topic Talks: SEL Forum March 2023
Today, Youth Motivational Speaker Gabe Salazar connected with PPHS and PPMS teens by delivering a message of hope about making smart choices. He talked about overcoming obstacles and not being afraid to dream big! Parents and the community are invited to attend his high-energy, interactive presentation at 6 p.m. tonight at the Performing Arts Center. When asked what it means to speak to teens in Paw Paw, Salazar said, "Very humbling that somebody would say that there is something that happened in my life that can help them. A lot of people go through hard stuff, but not everybody overcomes, and that's what people like about hearing my stories. They say, 'Hold on, if he can go through alternative school, abandonment and the tragic loss of his father, then what could happen in my life if I choose to overcome?'

Good Evening Paw Paw Families, Paw Paw Schools will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, February 23.

PPPS will exercise an abundance of caution today, Wednesday, February 22, closing buildings for any and all school and community activities and events, including practices. Maintenance and facility crews are adjusting for weather and will treat as possible, but will likely not be able to keep up with the ice accumulation that is forecast, so campus roads, sidewalks, and lots may be icy until treated. All Red Wolves are asked to exercise caution and common sense, to stay safe today, watch the weather, and stay tuned for any updates.

Good Evening Paw Paw Families, Paw Paw Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, February 22. Our current weather forecast predicts an ice storm tomorrow afternoon. While we can't be certain that the forecast will pan out, we are going to err on the side of caution in order to avoid the possibility of having to transport students home tomorrow in treacherous driving conditions. Please stay safe.
