Did you know that nearly 1 in every 33 kids lives in a home with someone other than their parents, and that includes many families in the Paw Paw district? (The AARP estimates the number of children being raised by grandparents has more than doubled in recent years, for instance.) Paw Paw PS wants to partner will all the families in our district, so the next Parent Chat will focus on the experiences of Nontraditional Families, including information and resources that can help these families support students towards health, happiness, and success. The next Parent Chat is Thursday, January 14, at 7 PM on Zoom. To register and get a Zoom link, please visit the PPPS webpage, at ppps.org. During this session there will be information for all families, including District and local resources available for support.

Good evening Later Elementary families. This is just a reminder to all of our families that all students will be learning from home tomorrow Monday, January 4th through Friday, January 8th. Chromebooks and all necessary materials were sent home with students on winter break. Please make sure that you carefully review information and schedules sent out by your child's teacher that give the schedule for live instruction. If you haven’t already done so, it would be a good idea to have your child to log into their Chromebook with their Clever badge this afternoon to check for instructions in their Google classroom. Your child will need to log on at 8:50am tomorrow for our morning announcements and then live instruction begins at 9:00am and goes until 12:30pm. Students have a 30 minute lunch break and then the afternoon is for the completion of assigned work until 3:00pm. We are asking for our families to sit down today with your children to remind them that attendance is required, participation is expected, and all we ask from each of our students is their best effort throughout the day. Make sure they have an appropriate space at home where they can productively participate throughout the moring during live instructiom. Our office will be open from 7:30am until 3:30pm if you have questions or need assistance. Once again, Happy New Year. We can’t wait to see the kids on Monday!

It's a great time to review guidance from the CDC that our district follows for when students, staff or family members test positive. Please make sure that you keep our office informed about positive cases in your household. We are here to help you identify a return date for your child if they have to quarantine. Our goal is to keep our pack safe, while ensuring that your child can return to school as soon as possible once their quarantine is finished. Please do not hesitate to call our office at (269)415-5400 if you ever have questions. Thank you!
