Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Powell School for the 2018-2019 school year.  To those of you whose children are attending Powell for the first time, I would like to encourage you to become involved in the activities at our school.  You will be meeting the greatest students, parents, and staff that a school could ask for, and have the opportunity to become a part of the Powell community.   I know this will be another memorable year and I am looking forward to a great school year!

On the first day of school your family will receive an important packet of information from the school district as well as Powell School.  Please review all the contents of the folder and return needed items:

  • 2 Emergency cards (1 for the office and 1 for the teacher)
  • 1 Powell School Parent/Student Handbook (return only Verification pg. 3)
  • 1 McKinney-Vento Assistance Act form
  • 1 Migrant Education Program form
  • 1 Earthquake preparedness letter and emergency card 
  • 1 Plastic bag for emergency food (non-perishable foods only that can be stored all year)
  • 1 Panther Parent Membership form

It is our goal to create a safe school that focuses on learning and equips all students to achieve.  We can only do this when we partner with our families.  Please take time to set clear expectations and goals with your child about academics, behavior, attendance and homework time. Should you have any questions, always feel free to contact the school. Our office is open Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Again, welcome back to the new school year.  I look forward to meeting each of you at Back-to-School Night.
