Thanks to Meemic for providing a Samsung tablet to Paw Paw Middle School teacher Andrew Becker. He will put it to good use with students!
At the June meeting of the Board of Education, Paw Paw Middle School math coach and interventionist Beth Covey shared the work of the MS Math Professional Learning Community, introducing board members and those in attendance to the work her team has put into developing a comprehensive MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) program in math for students in grades 6-8. For many board members and attendees it was an introduction to work generated during Wednesday Early Release sessions when teachers collaborate around student data to plan and adjust instruction to better meet the needs of all students. Thank you to Mrs. Covey and the MS Math team for sharing and providing the high quality MTSS program provided to students at Paw Paw Middle School.
Last night at the June meeting of the Paw Paw Public Schools Board of Education, Superintendent Rick Reo introduced the two individuals selected for the 2021-2022 Van Buren County Educational Hero Awards. Board President Brent McNitt helped recognize the recipients by presenting them with their awards. Paw Paw Early Elementary teacher Melissa Shugg was nominated for the award by a parent who wrote in her nomination letter about the extraordinary care, consideration, support, and professionalism her child received from Mrs. Shugg this school year. Paw Paw High School teacher Ben Tomlinson was nominated for the award by a parent who wrote in her nomination letter of the outstanding leadership Mr. Tomlinson provides for the PPHS Robotics Program and the outstanding experiences, mentoring, and outcomes provided to students who participate in the program. Congratulations to both 2021-2022 Paw Paw Public Schools Educational Heroes, and thank you for all the ways you positively impact the lives and experiences of students.

Mrs. Albertsons class read, "The Little Red Hen Makes A Pizza" and then made their own pizzas. The children had to follow the recipe cards and assign each student a job to help prepare the pizzas. Fortunately, unlike Little Red Hens friends they all wanted to help, The students became very excited when they could smell the pizza cooking! We learned alot about team work and the importance of each indivdual as we created a yummy product for all.
