Good afternoon Later Elementary families.  This is Mr. Davison reminding all of our families that we are returning to in-person learning tomorrow morning.  I hope your children enjoyed the last three days.  I think that our teachers and support staff did a great job providing some quality, live instruction for our students.  We are extremely happy with the attendance numbers from our virtual days and we look forward to continuing to improve what we can and will offer in the event that we have to provide more days of virtual instruction for our kids. As we prepare for school tomorrow morning, we need to ask all of our families for their help.  Our students took home a lot of stuff on Friday and we need you to help us make sure that it all comes back tomorrow, so that kids don't miss out on instruction in their classroom. Please help us make sure that the following things come back tomorrow: a Chromebook, a Chromebook charger, their clever badge, their student planner, their math workbook, any textbooks that were sent home.  specifically Wonders for English Language Arts and Impact for Social Studies, their reading notebook, and any homework that they were asked to complete and turn in as they return to school. As always, we appreciate your help with making sure that our kids are ready for their school day. Please remember to send a clean mask with your child.  Be sure to take their temperature, and if they are showing symptoms or if they have a fever or have vomited in the past 24 hours, keep them home to help keep the rest of our pack safe. Thanks again for a great three days of virtual learning and we'll see you tomorrow!

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. (Cited from www.history.com) Please make sure that you take time to recognize and thank the veterans in your life today!

Online Support Group for Parents to Address Stress, Anxiety, and Mental Health: Thursday, Nov. 5 @ 7 PM. Parents working to support and manage the stress and anxiety of COVID for themselves and their students and families will have a new resource available when Paw Paw Public Schools begins a series of support-group meetings tomorrow, Thursday, November 5, aimed at addressing and easing the mental and emotional challenges facing our school community. Each support group session will provide a short, informative presentation on issues related to mental health and well-being and then an opportunity for discussion and the sharing of ideas and resources. The sessions are not intended to be therapy, but rather opportunities for parents to learn more about mental health and the challenges of parenting during COVID, and to learn about resources available for anyone who may need additional support at this time. Sessions will be led by Paw Paw Public Schools Mental Health Clinician Stacey Coon-Ballard and Curriculum Director Corey Harbaugh, as well as other individuals from Paw Paw Public Schools who can join the conversation and add perspective, ideas, and resources. The online support group meetings will meet twice each month, every other Thursday, at 7 PM via Google Meet, starting this evening, Thursday, November 5. Any parent who wants to have access to the support group link should sign up on the PPPS digital app, at the District website, ppps.org, or at the link on the school Facebook pages. To register and be sent a Zoom link, please use this web address: https://forms.gle/YThVLgdUahEn1KXr6
