Dear Santa, I love school so much, but as you know there are some days we don’t have enough bus drivers to cover all our routes, and that’s hard on everyone. As kids, we have lots to worry about these days, so my one wish this year is to have enough bus drivers to take us to and from school every day. That’s where I need your help! Could you pretty please with cinnamon sugar on top help me spread the word to as many people as possible? We need more bus drivers, people like you who care about kids and want them to succeed. Our bus drivers are great people. We just need more of them! Thank you, Santa! Xoxo P.S. I’ll leave some milk and cookies out for you.

On this past Saturday, the Paw Paw Elementary Run Club members put their training to the test as they raced along a 1-mile or 2-mile loop on the challenging high school cross-country course. The program instilled essential life skills such as discipline, perseverance, and a joy of camaraderie. The club has not only fostered a sense of community within the school but also encouraged students to adopt running as a lifelong pursuit, setting the foundation for a healthier and more active future. The Paw Paw Elementary Run Club is not just about crossing the finish line; it’s about building character and embracing the exhilarating world of running.
