On Day 4 of National Bus Safety Week, here are some sound strategies to help students get on and off the bus safely. #ThankYouBusDrivers #studentsafetymatters #buildtogetherpawpaw
On Day 3 of National Bus Safety Week, today's tip is about keeping kids safe at the bus stop. The PPPS Transportation Department takes driver training and student safety seriously. In addition to regular bus evacuation drills with students, PPPS drivers participate in ongoing training, such as Drivers' Awareness Training, which addresses different scenarios and challenging situations that can occur on the bus. #SchoolBusSafetyWeek #ThankYouBusDrivers #studentsafetymatters #buildtogetherpawpaw
National School Bus Safety Week serves as a reminder for students, parents, teachers and the community to keep school bus safety top-of-mind. Each day this week we will share another bus safety tip. Today's safety tip is focused on walking to the bus stop. #schoolbussafetyweek #thankyoubusdrivers #studentsafetymatters #buildtogetherpawpaw

Family Literacy Night at Paw Paw Later Elementary was a huge success! Thank you to all who participated, and here's a special shout-out to the PPHS National Honor Society students who stepped up to provide child care, so families could attend. Research shows that parent involvement with reading activities has a positive impact on reading achievement, language comprehension, and expressive language skills, as well as students' interest in reading, attitudes toward reading, and level of attention in the classroom. #familyliterarcy #readerforlife #parentinvolvement #buildtogetherpawpaw

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!
School starts on the 28th. Just making sure that everyone has our supply list for this school year!
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!
