Dear Santa, I love school so much, but as you know there are some days we don’t have enough bus drivers to cover all our routes, and that’s hard on everyone. As kids, we have lots to worry about these days, so my one wish this year is to have enough bus drivers to take us to and from school every day. That’s where I need your help! Could you pretty please with cinnamon sugar on top help me spread the word to as many people as possible? We need more bus drivers, people like you who care about kids and want them to succeed. Our bus drivers are great people. We just need more of them! Thank you, Santa! Xoxo P.S. I’ll leave some milk and cookies out for you.
Beginning tomorrow, Paw Paw Middle School is pleased to announce it will open its doors and hallways to the community for indoor walking!

Note: indoor walking will be on student instruction days only and will be closed during school breaks, when there is an early dismissal or school cancellation. #community #buildtogetherpawpaw
