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.

Yesterday at the Paw Paw Middle School staff meeting, teachers and administrators celebrated four years of progress by teachers on the goal of becoming a model PLC school, including work to clarify curriculum and to put resources in place for instruction and intervention. Teacher Beth Covey and Principal Jerry McDaniel shared information about the journey so far, and what comes next as teachers work to improve student outcomes in our middle school.
Congratulations to the Paw Paw Middle School Students-of-the-Month: Brynn Cummings, Dakota Martorell and Kylah Jacobs for being recognized at last night's Board of Education Meeting. Well done! #PackPride #Success #Integrity

Good Afternoon, Unfortunately at the moment our phone lines are down. We are working to restore them quickly but do not have an estimated restoration time. Emailing building secretaries and principals is the best mode of communication at the moment. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Today, students from the Cedar Street Campus competed in a scavenger hunt called the "Paw Paw Scramble" as a way to get to know the community. This photo is of Mrs. Chandler's team at one of 20 stops in the downtown area. Students were challenged in many areas, such as: creative problem-solving, Paw Paw history and even math! See if you can answer this: Count the number of seats at the Strand Theatre. If the Strand charges $3 per ticket, how much money will the Strand make if 2/3 full? #communityconnections #buildtogetherpaw
