While we want students to have fun and participate in youthful activities while they’re still kids, we need to ensure our school remains a safe space for all students. With Halloween coming soon, many students want to wear costumes to school tomorrow. This is allowed, but those costumes need to be school appropriate. The following message was sent to students this afternoon: If you chose to wear something to celebrate Halloween tomorrow, please be sure that you adhere to the following guidelines: 1- you MUST meet the school dress code 2- absolutely no weapons (even fake) 3- no blood (even fake) or gore 4- no full face coverings, not even full face paint please. 5- no props that cause a disruption or potential hazard Thank you for your support.
Reminder that students do not have school on Monday, October 25. Also, Tuesday, October 26 will be picture retake day .
Election Day is right around the corner, and Paw Paw Public Schools Non-Homestead Operating Millage Renewal is on the ballot. Voters will be asked to consider a ballot proposal that would renew Paw Paw Public Schools Current Operating Millage rate of 18 mills for a period of 10 years. There is no cost on primary residences. This millage applies only to non-homestead properties such as rental homes, commercial property, businesses, and vacation homes. It will impose no new taxes. Holding this millage rate steady for the next 10 years will ensure that all students have access to opportunities that will prepare them for college, trade schools, the workforce and beyond!
