Our Later Elementary Open House was a fantastic event! It is such a great feeling to see and feel all of the energy, excitement, and anticipation for what is going to be an incredible school year. Thank you to Molly McNitt, the 100 Women of Southwest Michigan, our Elementary PTO, the Paw Paw Lion's Club, and other various donors that made our book vending machines a reality. The students were so excited to see the machine in our main hallway. Monday can't come soon enough!!!
PPPS administrators, teachers and staff are excited to participate in an all-day CharacterStrong School Culture Training at Paw Paw Middle School! A great school culture doesn't happen by accident. Intentional connection creates better relationships and an improved culture. #schoolculture #innovation #kindness #integrity #success #community
Don't forget that our Elementary Campus Open House takes place from 5:30-7:00pm tonight at the Early and Later Elementary buildings. Come meet your childrens' teachers and check out the new book vending machines. There will be 15 students from each building that get to be the first recipients of books from the new machines. There will also be several support organizations set up between the elementary buildings with resources and information that could benefit our families. We hope to see you there!

Our Later Elementary grade-level teams have worked together to create a common supply list for students to have for the school year. We are looking forward to another AMAZING year!
