Due to the popularity of the PPPS Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program, families are encouraged to enroll children as soon as possible for this fall! At this time, the 4-year-old classroom is full, but there's still time to add your child's name to a waiting list. Several spots are still open for the 3-year-old class, and when that class is full, another waiting list will be started. Currently, space is available in the 2 1/2 - to 3-year-old class and the preschool-readiness room, but these are also filling quickly. For more information, please contact the ECE Director: melinda.brennan@ppps.org.

Topic Talks: SEL Forum March 2023
Today, Youth Motivational Speaker Gabe Salazar connected with PPHS and PPMS teens by delivering a message of hope about making smart choices. He talked about overcoming obstacles and not being afraid to dream big! Parents and the community are invited to attend his high-energy, interactive presentation at 6 p.m. tonight at the Performing Arts Center. When asked what it means to speak to teens in Paw Paw, Salazar said, "Very humbling that somebody would say that there is something that happened in my life that can help them. A lot of people go through hard stuff, but not everybody overcomes, and that's what people like about hearing my stories. They say, 'Hold on, if he can go through alternative school, abandonment and the tragic loss of his father, then what could happen in my life if I choose to overcome?'
