The following article is written by the Warsaw Elementary's Cubs Chronicle about the new Paws Post Office program. Twenty-three post office "workers" go in every day six day and process the mail like a real post office. Anyone in the school -from teachers to students- can send mail through the Paws Post.
Post Master Jim came to the school from the Warsaw Post Office to swear in the new Post Master for Paws Post. We found out that Ms. B has been working with Post Master Jim to make sure that Paws Post is as much like a real Post Office as possible. The Paw Post has been working hard to make sure every room has a mail box with the right address, they made a mail slot for people to put mail in so they could deliver it.
The jobs were only open to the older kids (3rd 4th 5th). To get a job the older kids had to fill out a job application, have a employment exam of 10 questions, and answer questions in a interview with Ms. B and Mrs. P. Then they picked who they thought would be good for each job. In the end Nixie C. are Lexie C., Hudson W., and Owen K.. Sorters are Delaney D., Darrell U., Kip R., and Josmar L.. Chancellers are Omar B. and Aditya M.. Facers are Marshall P., Bailey S., and Riley N.. Carriers are Donovan M., Patrick K., Karson H., and Daniel D..
The Post Master is Meghan Y.. To swear Meghan in she had to put her hand on a paper and Post Master Jim had Megan agree to do a good job at keeping the post office in good shape and to fill in for anyone that is absent. Next Meghan cut the red ribbon officially opening the paws post for business.
After that I asked Post Master Jim some questions.
“I do the best I can [to stay organized] but I mostly have to rely on my workers.”
“The people [at Warsaw Elementary] are very kind and friendly.”
“I want to meet the superintendent Mr. E. [the superintendent of the district].”
Then I asked Meghan some questions.
“I’m excited to be a big part [the Post Master] of the post office.”
“[I'm excited] I get to work with everyone else in Paws Post.”
Post Master makes sure everyone is doing their job right and fills in for someone if their absent. Here’s some fun facts. You can get a stamp with your face on it, and a post office rarely ever runs out of stamps.
