Representatives from the Paw Paw Public Schools Adult Education met with representatives from Michigan Works/Kinexus and the Van Buren Intermediate School District on June 1 to look at opportunities to connect youth and adult learners and job seekers to programs that help individuals access everything needed to find a job or to advance to a better employment situation. There are exciting things in the works that will come out of these partnerships for PPPS and the surrounding communities. Look for more details in the August edition of the Pride and Progress.

Due to the popularity of the PPPS Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program, families are encouraged to enroll children as soon as possible for this fall! At this time, the 4-year-old classroom is full, but there's still time to add your child's name to a waiting list. Several spots are still open for the 3-year-old class, and when that class is full, another waiting list will be started. Currently, space is available in the 2 1/2 - to 3-year-old class and the preschool-readiness room, but these are also filling quickly. For more information, please contact the ECE Director: melinda.brennan@ppps.org.

Talk about talent! Marcos Garcia, an 11th-grade student with Aspire Academy, was selected as 1 of only 5 Van Buren Tech students in the Culinary Arts and Catering Management program to attend the Career and Technical Education Capital Showcase this year.
