Yes, you read that correctly ... we said, "Play!"
We became the nation's first and only Center for Play and Ingenuity Magnet Elementary School in 2016-17. This doesn't mean students just "playing around." Instead, it means finding new ways to meaningfully engage students in their learning while doing things that they enjoy and that interest them. Learn more about Play and Ingenuity.
Congratulations, Powell ES!
