Greetings Powell Families,
It is hard to believe that this school year is coming to a close this week. This has been a very fun and exciting school year as we have developed and implemented our new Powell Center for Play and Ingenuity magnet program. It has been rewarding to watch our students and staff grow with this new theme. Please take advantage of our continued learning opportunities over the summer. Just to name a few, Raz Kids, Big Universe, & Study Island are all resources that will help students continue to sharpen their skills over the summer. I will continue to send text reminders over the summer. If you are not receiving texts from me, please text the word YES to 67587.
